Founded in 1979 and managed by AMSI, Al Mawakeb School provides a comprehensive university preparatory education to a student body of over 5,500 (on both campuses: Al Garhoud and Al Barsha) of diverse backgrounds and nationalities.
In May 2010, Al Mawakeb School earned a five-year full term accreditation from AdvancED, an American education community that serves over 27,000 private and public schools in the US and 69 countries worldwide.
Although our medium of instruction is English, we follow a unique trilingual education program in English, French, and Arabic which enables our graduates to pursue higher education worldwide. The students begin studying the English, French, and Arabic languages as of Kindergarten.
Students of Grade 10, 11, 12 follow an academic US-style curriculum (equivalent to a US Grade 12 Diploma). There is one common curriculum without streams. Subjects are compulsory. Non Muslim students are exempted from Islamic Education.
Upon completing twelve years of education, students receive a high school diploma recognized by the UAE Ministry of Education. Our high school diploma, in tandem with the educational preparation we designed, has enabled our graduates to attend universities all over the world.
