Grade 5B Student
Are you wondering about why I love my school? I love my school because it is the best place for me to learn new things and have fun. All the teachers and students are amazingly wonderful. The principal is so kind and knows how to deal with problems. I mostly love the way teachers educate me and I also love how the teachers challenge me. I feel like I’m improving in a lot of things especially critical thinking. I am becoming more successful in solving problems by thinking and understanding what the question is asking. My teachers provide me with many different strategies to solve problems, my favorite is RUCSAC.

I have been a teacher at Dar Al Marefa School for six years and have enjoyed every single minute. It is an attractive, inviting, and safe environment where it is obvious that students are enthusiastically and meaningfully engaged in their education. The community here is astounding and there are always people willing to support you in anything you need. Staff here work together to make sure students are getting the best quality of education and community. I feel honoured to work with such professional and positive people and amazing students. Integrity is a very important value to me and I feel right at home amongst the staff at Dar Al Marefa School.

Even though I have been teaching at Dar Al Marefa for five years, I am continually surprised at how caring and supportive the staff and students are. I have grown as a teacher here, particularly in my understanding of the IB philosophy as well as teaching conceptually. The environment inside the school is really friendly and open where everyone is focused on the education given to the students.

Grade 4 Teacher
What makes Dar al Marefa a wonderful school? We teach students in a fun and engaging way, focus on the needs of each student, go beyond textbooks and are always reflecting about ways to improve. We acknowledge each students’ strengths and teach them how to own their weaknesses in order to overcome them. Most importantly, we focus on the character of a child to put their values, culture, morals and faith into actions. We aspire to instil all of this into our students so that they will be the great leaders that we know they can be.
Grade 5 Teacher
Since joining Dar Al Marefa six years ago I have gained a new family. I always feel supported and appreciated by students, colleagues and the leadership team. Dar Al Marefa has given me the opportunity to grow and develop as a teacher. I have gained so much knowledge and understanding of the IB curriculum; appreciating the importance of empowering students with tools, understanding and skills to solve problems and to make a difference in the future.
