At Al Shohub we provide students with the Ministry of Education Arabic Language, Social Studies and Islamic Studies Curriculum for native Arabic speakers, in conjunction with the English National Curriculum, tailored for the UAE, rich in cultural tradition and at the same time abundant with the energy and spirit of the 21st century.

We aim to inspire a love of creative learning and intellectual development in the classroom, whilst also encouraging each girl to achieve her potential outside the classroom through an extensive programme of co-curricular activities.

In all that we do, emphasis is placed on innovation, exploration and discovery in an atmosphere of courtesy and concern for others.
