National and International Curricula
Our curriculum is designed to
promote a peace education approach that emphasizes empathy, conflict
resolution, and social justice. We believe that peace education is a critical
component of our students' education as it helps them to develop the skills and
knowledge needed to create a more peaceful and just world.
Peace education involves teaching
students how to manage conflict without violence, respect all forms of life,
and engage in social justice activities. At our school, we prioritize these
values in our curriculum, ensuring that our students have the tools they need
to become active and engaged citizens who can work towards a better future.
PPS Dubai offers an American High
School program culminating in the American High School Diploma. The American
curriculum is adapted to include aspects of the local and international
community. Advanced Placement (AP) courses are also available in the Senior
School. We believe it is crucial to incorporate elements of the local and
international community into all aspects of our education. We are driven by the
UAE National Agenda to establish a competitive edge and compete academically on
an international level while promoting and nurturing national values.
We prioritize innovation and
believe that students' opinions and contributions are essential to their
learning and the development of pilot ideas and programs at school. Students
engage in activities that are enriched by the cultural diversity of the host
country, the school community, and international contributions. We also believe
that teaching openness, communication, respect, independence, and awareness are
critical to fostering international learners.
At PPS Dubai, we believe that a
person's success is not only measured by their academic achievements but also
by their strength of character. As such, the school's administration and staff
strive to create a learning environment that empowers and encourages students
to actively participate in social, economic, environmental, and sports events
both locally and internationally, as well as promoting leadership in a
community that is intercultural and international.
