Message from the Principal

Dunes International School believes to instill the best educational practices with the promise of a radiant future. Our mission is to integrate the essential skills of learning in our students by embracing the changing trends in the instructional strategies. Academically, we believe in inquiry-based approach to learning, considering the generation of students who learn to be critical thinkers, to be able to undertake research and think deeply about the essential questions that underpin their academic coursework.

Our curriculum, course offerings, co- and extra-curricular offerings are second to none. We strive to create an environment where each and every student is given the attention necessary to achieve his/her individual success.

We are a school that is both traditional and modern. Traditional in the values that we seek to instill in our students: kindness, courtesy and integrity are timeless qualities of character. Our focus on academic rigor and use of educational technology are constantly evolving and innovative. Our objective is to train our students to be capable of doing new things and not merely repeating the past.

With superb sporting facilities, well-appointed libraries, an auditorium and IT rooms, the school has the resources to allow for inspiring teaching. But it is our teachers themselves who create our school’s unique learning environment. They demand the very best from our students and give them the support and encouragement they need to flourish.

Good schools are built on the efforts of good people, and I believe that our teachers and students are among the very best.

All of this is made possible by strong partnerships that are developed with our parents. I hope that our website will assist in the endeavor. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us on
