  • ""We are the parents of Dhvani Jigar Shah from Year 2F and wanted to drop a quick feedback about her class teacher. Since the start, she has been a part of RIS and we as parents were really concerned about her during 1F and were on the verge of getting her school changed because she was not given the right support / direction to move ahead. However we thought we shall see for the first term in year 2F and make a decision and I'm very pleased to let you know what a gem you have in Mr. Flynn who is very hands on, understands his students, gives undivided attention as and when required, motivates and challenges the kids to get the best out of them. We are extremely happy with Mr. Flynn and thought it would be apt to let the management know of the fine work he is doing. He is one of the best teachers we have come across and he is surely an asset to RIS. Thanks" "

    ~ ~ Mrs. Prisca Toland (parent)

  • ""I have a daughter at RIS. It's a lovely school, not too big, not too small, just the right size for my child. The academics have a little more rigour than elsewhere which actually suits our daughter fine. The school has a good range of extra curricular activities. More importantly the teachers are qualified and committed and the management is competent and accessible. I would recommend speaking to the head teacher. You will find many parents who send their kids to RIS and who are very happy. To summarise, do your homework, visit the school, speak to teachers, the heads and the parents. Also speak to the children. These are the true spokespersons of a school. (Online recommendation on expatmums.com)" "
    ~ ~ Liz (parent)

  • ""Each school is unique and has its culture and that’s def true of Regent as well. As a teacher whose put a good year at RIS and is looking forward to the next at RIS, I can say what distinguishes RIS is the strong leadership and management of our senior management team and the enthusiasm of teachers. Our staff is committed and having achieved a “good” rating from the recent inspections is all charged up to better it next year. RIS also has a really diverse student and parent body that is markedly cohesive compared to other intl schools in Dubai. I’ve been given many opportunities to further develop my career as well as enhance my compensation, and the school makes a genuine effort to take care of its teachers. Being a long way from home, that makes a huge difference. As quoted in edarabia.com" "
    ~ ~ Jil (teacher)

  • ""The capacity to share knowledge and exchange diverse points of view falls into the category of the cognitive heritage of humanity. As an anthropologist of sound and music teacher I hold the view that the hard - though creative - work done within your school nurtures this capacity. (Music teacher from "Sounds Without Frontiers")" "
    ~ ~ Mr. Mario Friscia (music teacher)

  • ""Regent School got a “Good with Outstanding Features” rating from KHDA. Great!! As a proud parent, the school has made wonderful strides and ranks there amongst the best British schools in Dubai. A wonderful all round education, great teachers, staff and heads, and a wonderful student body. What more can a parent ask for. Students are very well behaved, all the school’s staff are extremely polite (a welcome change from some of the other schools out there). Way to go RIS! As quoted in edarabia.com" "
    ~ ~ Reema (parent)

  • ""My son started at Regent International School in Year 3 and is now in year 6. The school has improved considerably over the years and I can confidently state is probably one of the better British National Curriculum schools in Dubai. As a parent, I am very happy with my son’s progress and how he is developing. The school’s strengths are its delivery of the curriculum – a good mix of academic rigour and holistic development, the extracurricular activities, a very responsive and professional team of heads and teachers, and a multicultural and welcoming atmosphere. The school’s negatives are its smaller campus and a secondary dept that does not go to Year 12 as yet, although the school is growing and steadily adding classes. All in all, can confidently recommend RIS to parents. As quoted in edarabia.com" "
    ~ ~ Lindsay R. (parent)

  • ""Rarely come across a school that informs parents of their child’s behaviour on a daily basis. Regent school does just this….through sthing called a Virtual Learning Environment. It’s their online app that lets parents know not only how their child is behaving in class real time, but also how he is doing academically. My children get and submit their homework online, and we can view their curriculum and what they are learning. There are homework resources and the entire library is online. Pretty cool stuff. Net net we as parents have become more engaged in our children’s education and constructively support them. Kudos RIS! Keep up the good work! (As quoted in edarabia.com)" "
    ~ ~ Alistair (parent)

  • ""I think this school is amazing. I don't want to shift at all." "
    ~ ~ K. Mamtani (student)

  • ""I am M. Bensoud's mum (Year 3 D) and I would like to thank all the people who organised the trip to Atlantis. My daughter told me it was the best trip ever!! Special thanks to Ms. Hawke, Mr. Owens and Ms. Adams." "
    ~ ~ Mrs. K. Bensouda (parent)

  • ""This is the best school ever. It's school, but fun. I don't want to move to any other school!" "
    ~ ~ Z. Morgan (student)

  • ""My daughter is really happy and so am I. Thanks!" "
    ~ ~ Mrs. S. Mroue (parent)

  • ""A hearty congratulations on a delightful and very professional Year 6 show last night. It was so entertaining and great to see all the talent of our children celebrated in such an interesting way. The children (and particularly Wonchol) were beaming and proud. So much effort was put into it by the students, Ms. Walmsley, Yr 6 teachers and of course Ms. Lake and her music department. Thank you so much." "
    ~ ~ Mr. & Mrs. Dowdle (parents)

  • ""Having a good teacher can be found in most schools but having a teacher who is outstanding is rare. This year my youngest was blessed by having Miss Mortagh (Year 2B) an outstanding teacher! Miss Mortagh, puts her heart into teaching her class! Every child I know in her class can't wait to start the day, that's how each child should feel about going to school. She plans the day to be so fun that when we pick them from school they won't stop talking about their day. She finds the special spark in each member of her class and makes sure he or she shines. She appreciates her kids thoughts, emotions and their mental capabilities and brings out the best in them. As we always share with you our concerns as parents for the best interest of our kids, it's only fair to send our appreciation and thanks for a teacher giving her utmost for our kids education and well being."
