Academic Overview

Dubai Heights Academy offers a high-quality curriculum based upon the National Curriculum of England. This has been adapted to meet the needs of an international setting and to encompass the educational teaching and learning requirements of the KHDA (Dubai Knowledge and Human Development Authority). The curriculum is further enriched by the addition of Arabic language, Islamic Studies, Moral Education and Social Studies.

Our fully qualified teachers balance traditional learning and technology to provide an engaging and inclusive education, where students feel safe, included, happy and excited to learn. The care, happiness and well-being of every student is a priority and Dubai Heights Academy provides inspiring, innovative and fun learning experiences that take place in a well-resourced learning environment.

INCLUSIVE AI LITERACY

Students and teachers at Dubai Heights Academy (DHA) together with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed and are piloting an exciting new project-based curriculum for students from Year 6 to Year 8. This is part of an initial 3 year partnership between DHA and MIT. The program will focus on a very important STEM topic that is transforming society—artificial intelligence (AI). You probably have heard about it in the news and media—both the exciting solutions and applications that it enables, but also concerns about how it might affect people in unintended ways. Today’s reality is that if you are using online web services, mobile apps, smartphones, social media, etc., you are already interacting with AI-powered systems and technologies. We want to prepare students to be ethical designers and conscientious users of AI technologies. The job opportunities for those with competence in AI are already growing rapidly worldwide across diverse industries and markets, and the future is very bright for students who have skills in computational thinking and artificial intelligence.
