‘Enhancing the facilities at Dubai Modern Education School is essential if we are to continue improving the quality of teaching and learning and ultimately, student success’.
Our vision is to ensure that Dubai Modern Education School remains one of the country’s happiest, family-orientated, inspirational and innovative schools.
While the academic curriculum is at the core of what we do, sports and extra-curricular activities develop our student’s independence and co-operation, greatly supporting their learning in the classroom. There is no doubt that having the right facilities in place is key to enabling us to do this.
Much has been achieved already. We are very grateful to those who have made generous donations in the past which, together with the wise allocation of our surplus funds, has allowed us to make improvements to our facilities.
Our capital development plan is divided into three phases:
Phase 1: New Building
By September 2017 we will have successfully completed the building of two senior school centers, freeing up the space for Elementary and Middle School classrooms in the main building.
Phase 2: New library facilities
With ‘reading’ as the main focus for 2017/18 we would like to direct parents’ attention to our current libraries that are presently in need of refurbishment and are in short supply of interesting reading material and technology.
2016/17 saw the costly purchase of a reading scheme that supports in-class guided reading from Grade 1-12. However, ‘real’ books are essential for students to develop the habit of reading regularly.
- The Academic Vice Principal has worked closely with Zayed University and the school librarians to determine a way forward – purchasing books that are suitable for EAL learners, according to topic or genre, from a number of different publishers; and organizing these in a manner that is clear and manageable.
- In support of this library development, the school would introduce Mreader as a way of monitoring the reading habits of individual students. This program allows teachers to control how frequently students can take quizzes and what level of book difficulty they may take a quiz on.
