We are very proud of what the school has achieved in the past 10 years and what it continues to achieve on a daily basis and I hope that this website can give you a flavor of those achievements. We have a magnificent campus with wonderful facilities. We have a world-class curriculum with the genuine ambition of changing lives and changing the world in which we live. We have an inspirational and truly education centred parent company in Taaleem, committed to the UAE National Agenda. However, what makes Uptown School, a genuinely special place is the people. A visit to our campus will leave you marveling at our students. They exude the right sort of confidence and are bursting to tell visitors about all the amazing learning experiences that they enjoy every day. They are risk takers who understand that they learn from their mistakes and know that through perseverance and resilience they can achieve their dreams. They purposely strive to embody the IB Learner Profile in all that they do. This, of course, does not happen by accident. By offering three programmes of the International Baccalaureate – the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP)- we provide a seamless educational experience to students from age three to eighteen. The programmes are centred around the concept of developing internationally minded students who learn how to become better people and better learners. It is quite inspirational to see how this relentless focus on the child, supports them through their formative years. It is no surprise that students from three programme schools excel in the Diploma programme, the highly rigorous and respected pathway to the world’s best universities. The driving force of every successful school is the teaching staff. At Uptown, our teachers are dedicated to helping children discover and shape their dreams. They understand that engaging and motivating students in their own learning is essential and that instilling self-belief is the first step to success in examinations and life. As a school, we have strong focus on professional development and teachers pride themselves on being better practitioners when they leave the school, than when they arrived.
