Principal’s Message

Welcome to EIS-Jumeirah


I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. I hope you will find it both interesting and informative.

EIS-Jumeirah was the first IB world school in Dubai, having been authorized to offer the IB Diploma Programme in 1992. We are now authorized to offer all four IB programmes: IB Primary Years Programme, IB Middle Years Programme and the IB Career-related Programme as well as the original IBDP, The school boasts a proud tradition of success whether it be academically, sporting ahievement or in terms of our commitment to support both our local and global community. 

Our student body comprises around 2100 students aged 3 – 19 from more than 70 different nationalities. This is such an advantage for our students from the moment they embark on their first unit of inquiry in their Primary programme, which is ‘Who We Are’ to their university applications where our students stand out from the crowd and have been accepted to some of the most prestigious universities worldwide. 

Our teaching staff also come from nationalities across the world, This wealth of experience and international mindedness provides a source of interest and engagement for our students to learn more about cultures outside of their own. This diversity also reflects the cosmopolitan city we call home and the global community of learners with whom we are connected.

I could further elaborate about the many reasons I am proud to be a part of the EIS community, but in reality it is only by paying us a visit that you get a true reflection of the vibrant and exciting school we are all part of.

I hope to be able to welcome you to EIS-Jumeirah soon!

School Principal.
