About AIS

A warm welcome from The Apple International School

At AIS, we are dedicated to unlocking the full potential of every student through tailored teaching approaches. Ranked among one of the best schools in Dubai, we prioritise inclusive education practices, steering clear of ability-based labels, and embracing universal design strategies such as whole-class differentiation. Our commitment to inclusivity extends to removing barriers for students of determination, ensuring their seamless integration into our learning community.

Aligned with the Dubai Inclusive Education Policy Framework since 2017, AIS ensures that all students receive equal opportunities to thrive academically and personally.

Life at Apple International School

Life at Apple International School unfolds across three key stages ; Foundation Stage, Primary School, and Secondary School.  From their earliest years, students are encouraged to explore the huge range of educational opportunities available to them, to excel within realistic expectations, and to discover individual strengths through a well-planned programme of sporting, cultural, and social activities. Students at Apple International School are multicultural and are guided to form varied friendships. Apple-ites, as the students and staff are fondly addressed, are provided with immense opportunities to grow emotionally, physically, intellectually, and, most importantly, independently to foster high academic performance. The emphasis is on practical work. The teaching staff is committed to providing a happy, secure, and supportive atmosphere to foster personal growth and high academic results. However, Apple International School offers far more than just academic excellence. The range of extracurricular activities is extensive, and in inter-school competitions, performing arts, drama, debates, sports, and community service, we have established a particularly enviable reputation.

The compassionate and committed staff at all levels, be it foundation stage, primary level, or secondary level, offer a kaleidoscope of value-based learning activities and healthy competition among students to instill confidence, prepare them to face the challenges of the future, and mould them into responsible world citizens. The challenge in academic life for each student is to achieve their potential in all their subjects, to flourish in areas where they have a particular talent, and to enjoy the learning process.

Philosophy And Objectives

Our philosophy is centred on preparing students not just for school but for life itself. We work towards a school where:

Everyone is physically and emotionally safe.

Students develop self-esteem, confidence, creative expression, and individual talents.

Students take responsibility for their actions and are lifelong, self-directed learners.

Students communicate effectively, work cooperatively as team players, show respect towards themselves and others, and celebrate differences.

Our Core Values

Resilience – we have the courage to take action, be creative, take calculated risks, and accept the differences that make us unique.
Excellence – the will and determination to achieve one’s potential and beyond in all that we do.
Empathy – we acknowledge and appreciate our feelings and those of others. Empathy guides our thoughts, actions, and intentions.
Independence – we work proactively to explore, analyse, and create a better world around us.
Global Mindedness –   We relate to the local and global community, as we believe that the earth is all that we have in common.

Pastoral Care

The pastoral support programme is a school-based and coordinated intervention to help individual pupils improve their social, emotional, and behavioural skills. As a result of this programme, pupils should be able to better manage their behaviour and improve their overall skills. The pastoral life in the school is based on the ‘house’ system. To foster a competitive spirit among its students, all students are divided into four houses, i.e., Emerald, Ruby, Topaz, and Sapphire. Several inter-house events that fill the calendar year cover the gamut of all sporting and literary activities. These activities lay the groundwork for competition at a higher level. This helps to inculcate a spirit of cooperation and healthy competition and develop loyalty both to the house and to the school. Each house is headed by a captain and a vice captain, who work under the guidance of the section head.
