Dubai Investments Park (DIP), the largest integrated business and residential community in the Middle East, wholly owned by Dubai Investments (DI) PJSC, today announced the launch of the International School of Choueifat’s (ISC) new campus at the upscale mixed-use development offering a unique self-contained lifestyle.
ISC is designed as a 60,000 square-meter purpose-built campus that boasts world class educational facilities such as science and computer laboratories as well as a performance hall. The complex also hosts wide-ranging sports facilities including a semi Olympic-sized swimming pool, an indoor basketball/tennis court, an Olympic-sized soccer field and an athletic track.
The International School of Choueifat is a member of the SABIS® School Network, an educational organization that provides management and licensing services to schools in the public and private sectors spanning four continents. The schools under its umbrella together account for the education of approximately 62,000 students worldwide.
Omar Mesmar, General Manager, Dubai Investments Park, said: “DIP hosts seven dedicated plots for schools that serve as an educational zone within the park. It is a privilege to welcome a prestigious institute such as the International School of Choueifat. Our decision to lease the grounds for the state-of-the-art campus was taken after much research and consultation. We are confident that the SABIS® school will add significant value to the residents of the park and its neighbouring communities.
“The community is also home to respectable schools such as the Greenfield Community School, Al Worood International Private Academy School and Al Nibras Private School.”
Victor Saad, Vice-President, SABIS® Educational Services, said: “We are delighted to add a new campus to Choueifat’s network. We are certain that our school at Dubai Investments Park will cater to the local and burgeoning multi-national community in line with its mission to provide top-quality education to a diverse student body. We assure that the school will maintain high standards of efficiency and accountability throughout its operation.
“The institution will feature several exclusive amenities such as the Integrated Testing and Learning Centre (ITL). A unique IT component, it will optimise the efficiency and depth of the learning process. The independent KG Department will be equipped with an indoor swimming pool, play area and a multipurpose hall. Additionally, we will offer courses that enable students to take a range of internationally recognized examinations including the US Advanced Placement Exams, IGCSE and International AS/A-Level Exams, as well as the SAT and TOEFL exams.”
Academic operations are scheduled to commence in September 2012, with the school’s initial intake limited to kindergarten and lower primary level students. Additional grades will be added to the school’s offerings each year. Student registration for the ISC is underway since 12 March at the school’s temporary offices in Al Sufouh.
Dubai Investments Park is one of the largest business and residential communities in the Middle East. Currently, the park hosts 2529 tenants on a total leased area of 1,700 hectares. Strategically located within minutes from the Jebel Ali International Airport, DIP is a self-contained city offering state-of-the-art facilities and world-class infrastructure.
