About The School
Rashid School for Boys opened in 1986 under the guidance of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Dubai. It is a small private school located in Nad Al Sheba on the edge of Dubai.
The majority of students are UAE Nationals, but there are also pupils from foreign countries. Most join the school at the age of three or four and then leave at the age of seventeen or eighteen and move to universities and colleges in the UAE and around the world.
Most lessons are taught in English and the curriculum is developed from the UK National Curriculum. The school gives great importance to the teaching of Arabic language and Islamic Studies, and follows the Ministry of Education courses in these subjects. Arab history and culture are incorporated into the social studies courses. Grades 10 and 11 lead to United Kingdom General Certificate of Secondary Education examinations (GCSE). In Grades 12 and 13, all students are thoroughly prepared for university and college entry by one of two programmes: UK Advanced Level examinations are studied for entry to all UK universities and the best US universities. The High School Diploma course is specially designed for students going to other universities and colleges. Students take part in a wide range of activities throughout the year. These include camping, sailing, windsurfing, ice-skating, scuba-diving, and field trips to the UK plus many other opportunities.
The school has a well qualified and experienced teaching staff. The majority are UK graduates but there are also teachers from the USA, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Ireland, Jordan and Tunisia. The teachers are well supported by a large group of technicians, teaching support and administration staff.
The school has had a National Day Family Carnival for 3 years now, and the aim for this is to support the poor by collecting the money raised at this event! Also Rashid School hosts the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) every year, where a lot of schools from the whole UAE meet and discuss issues about the environment.
