The Apple International School, Dubai considers parents as partners in the development of their child. Through the years, the voice of the parent has always been of utmost importance to us and we are always willing to carefully consider any feedback they give us. The school has a Parent representative body – Parent Forum of The Apple International School, Dubai who are instrumental in guiding and encouraging the school with the views and concerns of the parents they represent. They serve as a link between the school and the general parent body with the aim of making The Apple International School a truly global school. They help in fostering academic, social, cultural and physical development thus preparing children to take their place in the world. Parent meetings are held every term during which suggestions received through the month are addressed. Term wise meetings also ensure that decisions taken are followed up. The Group consists of selected parents from each grade across the school. All parents are welcome to volunteer and be the representatives of the Parent Forum. They are selected by a random draw of lots. The members hold term for one academic year.
