The Primary Years Program (PYP) adopts a student centred and a trans-disciplinary teaching philosophy that helps the students to develop a set of values based on international mindedness. The students demonstrate a set of attributes that are shown through the IB learner profile. The beliefs and values of PYP are embodied in the IB learner profile (in action). The IB tends to develop internationally minded citizens who promote peace all over the world.

The IB MYP is a curriculum framework encompassing 8 subject areas where students engage in hands-on learning and are encouraged to make connections between the subjects. This is further developed through interdisciplinary units. As in all IB programmes, in the MYP students don’t just learn isolated content, but they learn through the context of real world issues.

The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who help to create a better and more peaceful world. The IB learner profile represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools. We believe these attributes, and others like them, can help individuals and groups become more responsible members of local, national and global communities.

IB learners strive to be: Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Risk-takers, Balanced, Reflective

Our school community (students, teachers and administrators) are lifelong learners who constantly seek knowledge and global understanding. Our parents are an important part of our community and we seek to involve them in the life of the school.

We believe in the PYP curriculum framework which has 5 main essential elements which are knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes and action.

Our community strives to promote a set of attitudes. These attitudes are appreciation, commitment, confidence, cooperation, creativity, curiosity, empathy, enthusiasm, independence, integrity, respect and tolerance; noting that these attitudes are also related to the learner profile.

We hire only the most experienced, qualified and well-educated teachers from around the world. Our teachers have bachelor’s degrees or higher, as well as an in-depth understanding of childhood development and experience in other international schools. After they are hired, teachers participate in a variety of training workshops and receive continuous professional development to grow professionally.

Our teachers receive continuous training and professional development in the IB’s approaches to teaching and learning from certified IB workshop leaders, to continually promote their awareness of current educational practices and new thinking. This is a requirement for any school that is implementing the IB programmes. All teachers who teach in IB classrooms are required to participate in collaborative planning and reflection to make their teaching practices consistent and to foster a holistic approach to education.

The school offers extracurricular activities programme after school. Activities include various sports including taekwondo and gymnastics, art & crafts, French, Science Club, coding and robotics, cooking, chess, etc.

In addition, the school provides remedial and enrichment lessons in the core subjects of English, Arabic, Maths and Science which support and extend students’ learning.

The school has added a homework lesson as part of the extracurricular activity programme where students will be supervised whilst they undertake their homework tasks. We want our students to have the opportunity to spend quality time at home with their families rather than having many homework tasks to complete after school.

The school has a canteen and will provide healthy nutritional meals during the school day.

We accept students regardless of their nationality, religion, colour, or race. The school is committed to provide equal opportunity of education to all students. Students applying to the school are required to sit a placement test to gauge their level of English, Maths and Arabic (if native speaker) or to help decide which year level will be most appropriate.

Student agency occurs when a student is given an active part to play in their education. He or she is given a voice and choice in deciding how they want to learn, which is usually driven by their interests. For example: within the same classroom, each student may choose to achieve the learning goals of a lesson through different activities. Student agency is about allowing students to learn through methods and activities that are meaningful and relevant to them. Our IB PYP students take ownership of learning – they’re hands-on explorers, builders, and designers who are involved in every facet of a topic, from conception to conclusion. This gives them the flexibility to take a different approach in exploring a topic or going in-depth to understand more. DPS students are encouraged to develop international mindedness and global awareness whilst maintaining their national identity by upholding traditional and cultural values of their community.
