School Life

Here at Dar Al Marefa we are committed to offering an inclusive, common curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all our students, whatever their needs or abilities. We aim to be a learning community where all people – including those with disabilities or special educational needs – can participate as equal citizens. It is our goal to create a culture of collaboration, in a landscape of mutual respect and equality for all. All students are given opportunities to be successful learners, to form positive social relationships with peers and to become fully participating members of the learning community DMS will follow and adhere to all provisions, guidelines and expectations found in UAE Federal Law and to meet the goal of being a fully inclusive city by 2020. The School will follow the Dubai Inclusion Education Policy Framework.

DMS will provide and monitor special education services to support the individual learning needs of students with a learning need so they can meet the challenges of a bilingual IB curriculum and be exposed to lifetime learning skills.

As an IB school, DMS already adheres to the philosophy that inclusion is an on going process that aims to increase access and engagement in learning for all students by identifying and removing barriers.
