The Nord Anglia International School Dubai

At NAIS Dubai our school’s reputation is based on providing the highest quality teaching for children aged 3-18 years old. We’re a premium school where success means more than achieving outstanding exam results – it’s about opening up a world of opportunity for our students.

Small class sizes mean our talented, highly qualified teachers have the time and resources to invest in your child’s individual learning path. We’re proud that the qualifications our students achieve allow them to win places at the world’s top universities.

We teach the International Baccalaureate diploma programme (IBDP) and we’re proud that our class of 2021 achieved an impressive average score of 39.4, which is significantly higher than the IB global average of 33.02, setting us apart from other IB schools around the world.

Our outstanding facilities mean we can offer an excellent all-round education, from our new secondary school expansion and sports facilities to our state-of-the-art auditorium, open-plan art studios, craft centres and theatre. Our exclusive collaborations with prestigious institutions such as UNICEF, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the world-leading performing arts school Juilliard mean we’re at the forefront of educational thinking, while creating life-changing experiences for your child.

When they join us, your child doesn’t just become part of our vibrant local community, but also the global family of Nord Anglia elite schools. Our students also collaborate through Global Campus, our online learning platform, sharing thoughts and ideas with their Nord Anglia classmates around the globe.

NAS Dubai is centrally located in Al Barsha, is an exceptional environment where your child will build the confidence, creativity and resilience for a bright and exciting future.
