Fairgreen International School Director, Graeme Scott; was asked to contribute to the first edition of International School Leader magazine this month.
With a campus designed for minimal environmental impact, utilizing solar power for all its energy needs, recycling all its water for agricultural use, and implementing waste separation, Fairgreen International School in Dubai empowers students to play a leading role in creating a sustainable future for our world.
Fairgreen’s educational programme is driven by academic achievement and innovation and is delivered by an exceptional team of international educators. Its challenging programme seamlessly integrates an intensive sustainable education curriculum to create a truly unique school in Dubai. Fairgreen intends to follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum of international education, a distinctive program for 3-19 year olds, known for its academic and personal rigour. Fairgreen’s curriculum will feature hands-on project-based learning, research-supported teaching methods, technology initiatives and worldwide partnerships with leading experts and organizations in sustainability-related research and practice.
Fairgreen is proud to be a part of The Sustainable City in Dubai, modelled to become an international showcase for sustainable living, work, education, and recreation. Recently awarded as Dubai’s happiest community, this pioneering development will enable Fairgreen students to experience sustainable living in action, and access the city’s unique resources such as a dedicated biodome with aquaponics and urban farming equipment, the Equestrian Centre and the Innovation Centre.
