One of the most interesting things about the schooling pool in the U.A.E is that there a number of different curriculum’s on over from a number of different schools. There are British curriculum schools, American curriculum schools and there is even a number of International Baccalaureate schools, offering one of the most comprehensive and rewarding educational programs in the world.
