I am so glad that we picked this school for our children to grow in. "

Teachers were very involved during the challenging times when the students were doing distance learning. Your dedication towards your students and their progress is self-explanatory. I can’t explain how proud are we of our son, which would not be possible without a successful team behind the scenes. Thank you to our Dar Al Marefa Family. "
