Approach - Regent International School | British Curriculum | Best School in Dubai
Ready for the future
Leading Happier, Healthier and more Successful Lives

Our purpose is to prepare students for the real world. Once students graduate from school and university, single-subject tests and exams are no longer part of their everyday life. To be successful requires a different way of thinking. Instead, their jobs require them to answer complex questions and solve real-world problems by creating products and services using skills and knowledge from multiple areas. Fortunately, these skills can be learned and Regent’s Secondary school prepares students for this. The key skills for tomorrow’s jobs, the 4C’s – Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Creativity – are all abilities that can be learned and practised much like reading and writing.

Regent’s Secondary students benefit not only from an outstanding Positive Education programme that develops wellbeing, values and character, but also from the unique opportunities to apply their imagination, to collaborate and innovate, improving their academic as well as leadership and teamwork skills. We blend traditional learning with STEAM and Project-based Learning and 21st century digital education practices enabling students to develop skills so that they can succeed in an ever-evolving and changing world.

KHDA Report

My role model is Elon Musk and to become a tech entrepreneur.

Regent has given me the skills and confidence to get there. In a variety of STEAM & Project-based Learning projects, I have worked with classmates learning to code in Python and Java, build robotic vehicles, and construct IoT sensors. We have won multiple competitions in the UAE and abroad for our tech projects and talent. Remember my name because I promise you will hear a lot more about me.

RIS EYFS student

Possibilities are infinite at Regent for a child.

There are no limits to let my child’s imagination grow at Regent. He has become extremely ambitious in his thinking and outlook and what he believes he can do, which is great. Children are encouraged to take chances, try anything and not be afraid.

The strong sense of community makes Regent more than just a great place for study.

It’s a great place for families to get to know each other and make new friends. The Regent community spirit is outstanding.
