Though only opened in 2009, the British International School has already developed an accomplished reputation in Abu Dhabi. The institution is part of the Nord Anglia Education group, a body that’s become old hand at delivering excellent education opportunities to foreign communities based abroad.  Though the school upholds the English National Curriculum, it looks to gain International Baccalaureate (IB) accreditation in the near future, and accepts students of all nationalities with open arms. In short, the well-qualified staff concentrate on providing an international context to a typically British-style of teaching. Parents are encouraged to get involved in their student’s school life, and students are encouraged to not only become confident, open-minded and respectful members of their classroom, but well-rounded contributing members to a global community.
