Director's Welcome

Graeme Scott, Fairgreen Director


As a parent, selecting a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will face. If you imagine your child’s school days to be happy and inspiring, full of fun, discovery and challenge, then you really should speak with us.

If you also believe great schools should be academically rigorous whilst providing opportunities for students to use their knowledge, skills and understanding to solve problems, and help create a more equitable and peaceful world, then you should definitely consider Fairgreen International School.

Our global landscape has changed dramatically in recent years. Schools need to rapidly evolve in order to meet the needs of contemporary learners. We need to prepare children to be active participants, leaders and custodians of this dynamic environment.

Fairgreen International School has been designed specifically to meet these needs and to develop articulate, caring, global citizens. Our educational philosophy and practice is founded in robust research, supported by recent findings from educational neuroscience and enveloped within a culture of extraordinary care. Innovation and creativity are non-negotiables, with children encouraged to be courageous and think differently.

"Our learning program is supported by the framework of the International Baccalaureate whose aim is to 'develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect'. Fairgreen and the IB are a perfect match".

What makes Fairgreen different, though, is our school-wide focus on sustainability. Situated within Dubai’s unique Sustainable City community and benefiting from close relationships with the many facilities and environmental organizations on our doorstep and also further afield, the school nurtures the next generation of global guardians.

All of this is provided through the most welcoming of environments, with an emphasis on building relationships and caring for each other. Research tells us that it is in these environments where deep, transferable learning grows most effectively.

We look forward to meeting you and explaining more about what Fairgreen can offer you and your family.
