What Makes Our School Special?
Unlike other schools in Oman, the class capacity is set to 20 students at DPS . It is one of the vital policies DPS will adhere to make sure that the capacity should and will not exceed 20 students.
Our school community (students, teachers and administrators) are lifelong learners who constantly seek knowledge and understanding. Our parents are an important part of our community and we seek to involve them in the life of the school.
Our teachers are well experienced, well-qualified and are from many countries around the world. Our students get to develop their global citizenship from the diverse backgrounds of our staff.
We believe in the PYP curriculum framework which has 5 main essential elements which are knowledge, concept, 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.
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.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Our school’s IB programmes foster both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development. Students will be encouraged to:
- Think independently and drive their own learning
- Take part in programmes of education that can lead them to some of the highest-ranking universities around the world
- Become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language
- Engage with people in an increasingly globalised, rapidly changing world.
The IB is world renowned for its high academic standards, commitment to multiculturalism and focus on developing skills that will prepare students for success in future educational endeavours and life in a global world. To learn more about the IB, visit www.ibo.org
