ADIS Values

Al Durrah International school values

Al Durrah International School [ADIS] education is defined by a comprehensive focus on our students’ development in every sense: intellectual, personal, physical, social and ethical. The five universal values that best express what we strive to impart to our students are:

RESPECT

We aim to empower students with critical thinking skills – how to think, not what to think. We value critical thinking as it is the foundation to all advances in the fields of human knowledge and intellectual achievements, such as inventions and creative solutions to problems that confront humanity. Building on our core values of respect, love of learning, responsibility and global citizenship, we empower our students to integrate all aspects of their lives – family, academic, social, spiritual and physical. We aim to instill in our students an empathetic understanding of one another and a sense of respect that traverses all student relationships, between each other, towards their teachers and families and with regards to the community as a whole.

LOVE OF LEARNING

We foster in our students a genuine love of learning, and a desire to acquire knowledge in and for itself. By encouraging our students to be creative, our classrooms, teaching style and curriculum are designed to cultivate an eager, competitive, and self-motivated generation that continues to pursue knowledge and personal development.

RESPONSIBILITY

We model honesty, integrity and responsible behavior to our students. They will learn that they are stewards of what they receive, accountable for their own actions, independent in their thinking and personally committed to community service, as well as strive for social justice for others less fortunate to achieve their own social, educational and personal goals.

GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP

We are committed to the diversity within our community – geographically, economically, ethnically and religiously, with the aim to raise in our students the awareness of global citizenship. We impart to our students universal values common to all cultures, such as ethical responsibility for one’s actions, moral responsibility for those less fortunate than ourselves, social progress, equal rights and human dignity, while developing a strong sense of belonging to the UAE, as well as to the global community

EMPOWERMENT
