Welcome to JESS Dubai, one of the leading British curriculum schools in the Middle East.
At JESS, culture is everything and two words encapsulate this culture for me – aspiration and nurture. These words form the heartbeat of our school. Every child will find their place at JESS and every child will be the best they can be, plus more.We are a dynamic, forward-thinking school, built on foundations of high standards and expectations. As one of the longest-standing not-for-profit schools in Dubai, we have a history and a proven track record. Every student, teacher and member of our community take on a responsibility when joining JESS to maintain and cultivate the very special culture that exists inside our walls. You will find this culture embodied in every pocket of our school, in the way JESS students think, feel and act, whether aged 3 or 18.JESS produces adaptable, versatile, future-ready young people who have the attributes and thinking skills to embrace the challenges presented by a constantly changing world. The academic outcomes our students achieve are remarkable and provide a launchpad for countless opportunities beyond the school gates.In many ways, JESS reflects the country we live in. We are fully committed to the UAE National Agenda and are an inclusive, tolerant and welcoming school community with students from over 70 different nationalities sharing a common purpose. People are our key focus. While producing 21st-century thinkers and independent learners, it is the skills that are difficult to measure that count. Compassion, empathy, humility, civic-mindedness and the way we treat each other every day are at the core of our culture. These foster a symbiotic relationship whereby our students and teachers challenge and inspire each other. Positive relationships coupled with purpose and ambition create an irresistible formula.A student’s world at JESS stretches well beyond the classroom. Whether it be in the sporting arena, performing on the stage, exploring their creativity or contributing to the local and global community, the same standards and expectations exist which promote physical, emotional, personal and social development as well as intellectual growth.At JESS relationships are key, ambition is tangible and the opportunities are endless. Every day, every member of our community is inspired and motivated to ‘Make A Difference’.
