A new model of schools focused on "Arabic literacy, science and technology, UAE culture and Islamic studies" has been launched in Dubai. 

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, launched the 'Dubai Schools' to support the Emirate's education system through a new model "with international education standards".

He said the schools will receive the first group of students from the next academic year.

According to the schools' website, Dubai Schools aim to provide "high quality accessible education".

"We do this by adopting principles of excellence in education through internationally recognised curricula delivered by reputable private sector operators. This unique partnership between the government and private sector is represented by Taaleem during the first phase," the website said.

Dubai Schools aim to set the "standard for education and academic quality in Dubai through bilingual education focused on Arabic literacy and preservation of national culture".

"We partner with experts, experienced educators and operators to promise a new generation of students nurtured in a well-rounded learning environment that blends the best of both worlds – local values with a global outlook," the website said.
