At Dunecrest American School in Dubai, we promote the values of brave curiosity and diligent effort as the keystones of helping students flourish as learners in their pursuit of academic excellence.

Our coursework, from Pre-Kindergarten through grade twelve, provides meaningful and challenging opportunities for both individual and collective achievement. We empower students with the desire and the means to reach their highest potential. We want students to be able to take a question that’s really compelling in the world or in their lives, and have many tools with which to help them answer it.

Our Early Childhood Program in Pre-KG and KG1 follows the research-based American Creative Curriculum®.

Our KG-12 standards-based American curriculum follows the AERO (American Education Reaches Out) standards set by the Department of Overseas Schools, part of U.S. State Department of Education, also aligned with the Common Core, utilizing a cross curricular approach.

Students in Grades 11 and 12 have the option of following the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme®.
