AIS Dubai is an exceptional educational institution. Located in the UAE, we provide an excellent opportunity for students to develop a deep understanding of Arabic and Islamic language and culture, while simultaneously learning within the globally recognised Australian National Curriculum.

With one of the largest campuses in the Emirates, state of the art teaching and learning labs, and a progressive and innovative focus on wellbeing for students, teachers, and staff, AIS Dubai is poised to become one of the most outstanding schools in the UAE.

All staff of AIS Dubai play a key role in the delivery of quality education to students: teaching to instill a lifelong love of learning is our core business. All staff members contribute to the vision of AIS Dubai through excellence in teaching and learning, a rigorous and challenging curriculum that has a multicultural, international perspective, fair and equitable work practices, and productive partnerships with the school community. This provides opportunities for students to acquire knowledge and understanding, pursue special interests, and develop social and intercultural skills which all contribute to the school and its strong sense of community.

Underpinning the work of our staff is our professionalism and adherence to high standards of ethical conduct, dedication to students, and care of them. In our delivery of educational services, there must be a clear articulation of what is expected of us in the way we conduct ourselves and perform our work.
