UAE: 3 schools shortlisted for international awards

Three UAE schools have been chosen for a global award that honors their initiatives for well-being, digital learning abilities, and future-focused programs.

The International School Awards honor international schools’ learning, teaching, community, well-being, leadership, and other tactical activities. They are sponsored by ISC Research, a UK-based educational data company.

Schools have been shortlisted in 10 categories: community partnerships, diversity, and sustainability.

The Digital Technology in Learning Award candidates has been narrowed down to Ajman Academy and Dubai College.

This award will recognize a school initiative that uses technology to help pupils learn digital responsibility.

Dubai College has also been nominated for the Future Pathways Award, which assesses how a school initiative prepares pupils with the skills and values to support them in future endeavors.

The British-curriculum school in Al Sufouh, one of the oldest in the city and regarded as one of the best in the emirate, was founded in 1978.

Dubai College has been ranked among the top 100 private schools worldwide by the opulent lifestyle publication Spear’s.

For the Wellbeing Award, the Millennium School in Dubai has been shortlisted. The 22-year-old school in Al Qusais has nearly 2,800 pupils enrolled from pre-primary to grade 12.

The shortlisted schools were selected among 291 applications received from schools in 61 countries.

The prizes allow foreign schools to share best practices and creative endeavors.

Schools across the world have been shortlisted in several categories. Winners will be announced during a live virtual ceremony on January 24, 2023. BKM/ Expat Media
