The Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai (SISD) opened in August 2015 and is a candidate school for all three academic International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes with the goal of becoming an IB continuum school. We seek to inspire students beyond the classroom to become lifelong learners and global citizens of the 21st Century by developing their talents in a multilingual environment. The school currently serves approximately 980 students up to Grade 10. From August 2018 grade 11 will open. Student numbers will eventually rise to a targeted total of about 2200, of whom 300 will be boarding. Our generous, state-of-the art campus with significant sports facilities is located in Dubai Healthcare City.
