Chinese School Dubai (CSD), the first Chinese public school to be established outside China, will open its doors to students in the Mirdiff area of Dubai.
His Highness Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum inaugurated the school saying it further strengthens the UAE’s strong cultural ties with China and the deep bonds of friendship and cooperation between the two countries.
The school will serve up to 2,000 students and follow the model of Hangzhou No. 2 High School, an internationally renowned school based in Hangzhou, the capital of China’s Zhejiang province.
In addition to the Chinese national curriculum, students will study Arabic, Islamic studies, and moral education. School officials and teachers have been directly recruited by the Hangzhou Education Bureau.
The opening of CSD will offer new schooling options for the 200,000 Chinese nationals living in Dubai. The school will also accept students of other nationalities living in Dubai. The addition of CSD brings the number of curricula offered by Dubai’s private school sector to 18.
