A British National Curriculum School, Regent International School was launched in 1993. The school has woven an array of scientific methodologies into its teaching philosophy. Student happiness is more important than academic performance, and they’re encouraged to be well-rounded individuals with the help of the school’s world-class facilities. The school is accredited by Google, Apple, and IPEN. It’s also a member of British Schools in the Middle East.
The Regent International School has always been on my radar because of its prominent location in The Greens. Writing this review was the perfect opportunity to explore the school’s teaching philosophy, prime objectives, and facilities. Here’s a summary of what it offers its students.
Rates and prices
The fee structure at Regent International comprises four financial obligations. The first is the application fee, this is non-refundable and is due upon submission of the application pack. The second is the assessment fee, this is also non-refundable and is due before the assessment is taken. The third is the acceptance and is applicable to new students, this is non-refundable and is payable five days after the student has obtained a seat at the school. The fourth is the re-enrollment fee and is applicable to existing students. 10% of tuition fee and non-refundable.
Regent International is quietly tucked away in The Greens and can be accessed via two major highways. More specifically, it’s located in the Emirates Living Community. It can be conveniently accessed by both personal and public transportation. Those working in JLT, Internet City, and Media City will find it easy to drop their children off as it’s within the general vicinity.
Regent International cares deeply about community service. The school works closely with NGOs, the local community, and charities. Students are involved in these initiatives, and are encouraged to build their teamwork, leadership, and self-confidence skills via selfless service. Some of the organisations Regent International works intimately with are Al Noor Center, Sunbeam, Karuna Society for Animals and Nature, Rashid Pediatric Center, and several more. In addition to making a positive impact on society, the school also cares about making a positive impact on its students’ mental health. Its Positive Education program incorporates the best features of positive psychology and welcomes great results in the areas of creativity, healthy emotions, relationships, accomplishment, purpose, engagement, and productivity.
Regent International’s campus and facilities have been carefully designed to encourage curiosity in its students. Its bespoke facilities include speciality labs dedicated to science, IT, design and technology, food technology, and robotics, stylish studios devoted to dance, music, drama, and fine arts, outdoor play zones, two heated swimming pools, performance halls, and libraries.
While Regent International has received broadly positive reviews from both parents and students, it needs improvement in the following areas: encouraging its students to take up Arabic as a second language and its Islamic studies department. In addition to this, it also needs to work on the support it provides students with special educational needs (SEN).
The student body at Regent International is a blend of 70 nationalities. British is the most prominent nationality at the school, with Emirati students being a minority at a mere one percent.
