The quality of the curriculum provided by the school is outstanding.
It is broad and balanced, and enriched by a wide range of extracurricular activities. A thematic approach is used across the school to develop learning through connections across subjects, context and the pupils’ passions.
Very strong curriculum with rich learning opportunities
that has an impact on the child's progress.
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.
With an amazing senior leadership team and experienced educators,
a Regent education is interactive and collaborative. They truly make school a rich and memorable experience.
My school feels like home.
I love coming to school every day.
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.
Regent has given my daughter a new start.
This school has encouraged her to gain confidence and to express herself. The teachers are always available to help. My child has blossomed and is so heartening to see her inner wonder come out.
