The Multinational School’s salubrious campus in Adliya has a colourful history. Until summer 2013 it was home to the New York Institute of Technology and before that it was the US Embassy, so the buildings have some stories to tell. The school opened in September 2013.
The school was initially a large Primary School with a developing Secondary School attached to it. We offer the Cambridge Curriculum for Year 1 to Year 9 as well as IGCSE courses being offered for Year 10 and Year 11 students. Our successful and ever-growing Early Years phase offers schooling for Nursery and Reception children.
The school is fully inclusive and has developed a Learning Enrichment Department that caters currently for over 30 students. The school currently has over 50 different nationalities represented amongst the staff and students. The Multinational School’s success is partly due to our philosophy on learning. Students' happiness and wellbeing are central. School is a joyful place, a community working with a common purpose while having lots of fun doing so. School is about educating the whole child and offering them every opportunity to grow. The whole community is driven by a culture of high expectations and respect, where everyone within our community can be successful.
Students with particular academic strengths or those with specific Mathematics or language ability are identified by the teachers and engage in a cross-class programme that helps challenge and extend these students more. We expand our search and offerings into the arts too. MNS is a unique and special place for all who are a part of it. One only has to visit us to recognise that it is a happy school environment. We focus on producing a comfortable and safe space where our teaching and learning is wholly centred on each student achieving their best results.
There are some students who may not be achieving as they should for a variety of reasons. At MNS we are able to assess for challenges such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and autism to name a few potential barriers to independent learning. These are then referred so that we can best prepare a programme for our students to be successful. Inclusion means that all students are included in the general class activities and lessons.
Our school prides itself on its high expectations and high aspirations for all our students and their families, who are part of our community here at MNS. Your child’s education is your first priority as well as ours. We see ourselves as partners in your child’s learning and in their personal development, offering a balanced curriculum that addresses each child as a unique person with his or her own strengths, needs, aspiration and interests.
