Student Life at DS
Dubai Scholars Private School is an environment that is bustling with activity, full of excitement and overflowing with life.
Student life is so much more than academics. Well-implemented programmes are designed to foster their personal social and emotional development- these are associated with positive outcomes, ranging from better academic performance, making the right choices, preparing them for the outer-world and improved social behaviour.
DS students are a part of a very close and caring community. The strong friendships formed here endure long after a student graduates, as do the life-changing lessons learned. Students build friendships, learn responsibility and work hard in a safe, secure environment.
The exposure for our Primary students to leadership starts early through the Junior Student Council and the transition to Senior School upholds them to exercise their leadership skills with a greater sense of confidence and passion.
A global and local perspective is an important element in developing the students at Dubai Scholars. Trips, both short and long haul add great value, from local adventure related overnight camps to International Educational trips to places like Shanghai, Singapore and the NASA visitor centres offer a unique blend of education and entertainment.
Throughout the year, we encourage our students to participate in activities that provide experiential learning. Activities include a wide range of both individual pursuits and team building activities for all students to choose from. Extensive participation from our students at Inter-school competitions; Student led after school extra-curricular clubs; Buddy tutoring & Community outreach programmes; Breast Cancer Awareness campaigns; 30X30 Dubai Fitness Challenge just to name a few. Sports Days in DS centre around the four houses Alpha, Beta, Omega and Pi. The competition is healthy and there is a palpable excitement in the air on these special days of our calendar. The students love cheering for their houses and the winning trophy is the much coveted prize at these.
We also offer excellent coaching for games such as Hockey, Football, Basketball and Cricket; enthusiastic participation of students at Business Competitions, Literacy Festivals, Summer Enrichment Programmes; Model United Nations; Science Fairs; Art of Giving Campaigns; After School Clubs; exemplary musical and theatrical performances and concerts; Student led online portals such as DS Pulse; Dubai Scholars Cup, Math Masters; Academic Boosters – Online Buddy Tutoring Portal, Teaching our Support Staff Programme (TOSS); Continued effort by students in schemes that contribute effectively in sustainability and conservation.
