Emirates International School – Jumeirah Profile

Emirates International School- Jumeirah was founded in 1991 and has grown to accommodate 2225 pupils of over 80 nationalities from KG1 to Year 13. The school is demonstrative of the highest international standards in both curriculum and instruction. Emirates International School -Jumeirah has shared a rich association of over 25 years with the IB and was one of the first schools in the UAE to offer the IB Diploma Programme. The school is proud of its status as an IB World school and is one of the few schools in the world and the UAE to be authorized to provide all four IB programs; the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Programme (IBCP). Between the first graduating class of 1993-94 and our most recent class of 2016-17, Emirates International School- Jumeirah has entered 1152 candidates in the IB Diploma Programme. 996 (86%) students have been awarded the IB Diploma.

Pupils enter the High school in Year 7 where they study a core curriculum for three years before electing courses for a further two years of study in Years 10 and 11. English is the primary medium of instruction at the school, with foreign language options including the Ministry of Education Arabic language curriculum. It is the school’s policy not to rank our students, nor to predict bonus points for the TOK essay and the Extended Essay. School does not report GPA or subject credits.

The DP curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising theory of knowledge (TOK), creativity, activity, service (CAS) and the extended essay. Each student takes at least three (but not more than four) subjects at higher level (HL), and the remaining at standard level (SL). SL subjects take up 150 teaching hours. HL comprises 240 teaching hours. HL and SL courses differ in scope but are measured according to the same grade descriptors, with students expected to demonstrate a greater body of knowledge, understanding and skills at higher level. Students choose courses from the following subject groups: studies in language and literature; language acquisition; individuals and societies; sciences; mathematics; and the arts. Students may opt to study an additional sciences, individuals and societies, or languages course, instead of a course in the arts. The subjects are scored on a scale of 1- 7 points, resulting in a 42 point system. There are a further 3 points available for the core components of the extended essay and theory of knowledge, both of which are not factored into the predicted grades. We do not rank our students.

Emirates International School- Jumeirah students are consistently challenged to reach their full potential both in and out of the classroom. Average IBDP score in last five years has consistently exceeded global averages (31-34 compared with the global mean of slightly below 30 points) and our graduates are accepted at some of the world's most prestigious universities. Our 2017 IBDP results saw one of our students achieve 43 points from a possible 45. The school's average was 32 points, once again exceeding worldwide averages. Eleven of our Year 13 (Batch of 2016-17) students have gone to pursue studies at Russell Group Universities - University of Leeds, King's College London, University of Manchester, Newcastle University, Queen Mary University of London, University of Sheffield, Durham University, and University of York. 117 different universities from around the world visited the school in the year 2016-17.
