Dubai: About 5,000 schools in 141 countries offer International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma programmes – and the latest in this roster is the North London Collegiate School Dubai.
Taking into account the brand’s 160 years in education, the International Baccalaureate has approved the course.
Proud of the achievement, the institute’s founders expect that the Dubai edition will mirror NLCS’s other schools’ successes. Seven students from NLCS (UK) and NLCS Jeju scored a perfect score of 45 last year. To put this in context, that bar has only been achieved by 218 students out of 160,000 students who took the test from around the world.
On the occasion of the green signal, Ajay Rajendran, Co-Chairman, Sobha Group, said: “I wholeheartedly congratulate the NLCS Dubai leadership team for this achievement. We are on our way to delivering the most competitive IB programme in the Middle East.”
“When we decided to work with NLCS, we were confident of bringing a higher standard of education to Dubai and we are very pleased to see that we are already living up to that reputation,” he explained.
