Our School

Rashid School for Boys has been providing high quality education in Dubai for over 35 years. We offer an outstanding education for Emirati students aged 3-18 years and have developed our own curriculum which combines the best of the UK National Curriculum, UAE Ministry of Education, and our own bespoke courses, to provide a lively, exciting and relevant education for the future leaders of Dubai.

The school has been established on our three core values that resonate when you visit our school:

  • Always Learning
  • Ready for Leadership
  • Respect and Kindness

 

It is for this reason we challenge all students to grow and develop to the full extent of their ability and to equip them with the skills required to take on leading roles within Dubai, the UAE and internationally. We demand high standards of discipline, honesty, courtesy and effort, and we encourage and expect each pupil to attain the highest level of achievement of which he is capable.

We integrate the best of current international educational practice with a respect for Arab traditions and UAE culture. The bilingual curriculum is broad and balanced, and combines academic study with creative, physical and social activities. Every student is known and valued as an individual, and they have a moral and spiritual education that helps them develop an understanding of the contribution they will make to the global community.

The school caters for children with a range of additional needs. Places are offered on our guiding principle that we are able to meet a pupil’s learning needs to enable them to achieve their full potential.

Safeguarding is of paramount importance here at RSB. Safeguarding includes child protection, health care plans, health and safety, site security, safety on school trips, anti-bullying work and so much more.

Very soon the school is closing its doors for site refurbishment, talent recognition and a learning revolution. We aim to reopen in September 2023 and all are welcome to follow us on this incredible journey.

Environment

Rashid School for Boys - an oasis in the heart of the Dubai Emirati community

Peaceful gardens, bubbling fountains, cool, shaded walkways, sweeping playing fields and state of the art classrooms and student spaces makes Rashid School a wonderful environment in which to learn and grow. Designed to celebrate the architectural heritage of the UAE as well as the tranquillity of the traditional Japanese garden, the single-story site has been seen by the school community as an oasis throughout the years. Nestled between the Meydan horse racing track and a Maktoum family palace in the Nad Al Sheba district of Dubai, it truly is in the heart of the Emirati community.
