Welcome Message from the Principal
Principal - Andrew Wood
Welcome to Greenfield Community School!
Greenfield Community School is a school with a warm heart, a place where each child and family is made to feel welcome and at home. We seek to inspire young minds and to challenge each child to identify and develop their unique talents. Academically, we are one of a few schools in the world to offer all four International Baccalaureate programmes. With an inquiry based approach to learning, IB students learn to be critical thinkers, to be able to undertake research and think deeply about the essential questions that underpin the academic coursework that they undertake. The Diploma and Career Certificate courses are academically challenging and are recognized as the gold standard when it comes to admission to top universities.
AT GCS we offer the continuum of all four IB programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Programme (IBCP).
How does the IB define ‘international education’?
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) chooses to define ‘international education’ according to the following criteria:
• Developing citizens of the world in relation to culture, language and learning to live together
• Building and reinforcing students' sense of identity and cultural awareness
• Fostering students' recognition and development of universal human values
GCS is committed to building a truly world class IB Continuum School recognized in the UAE for its strong academic ethos and excellent quality of teaching and learning.
Greenfield Community School is bound by its commitment to develop and equip students with knowledge, skills and values through an effective and challenging curriculum and instruction, using technology innovatively and a strong foundation of the IB Learner Profile with a nurturing and caring community environment. To become a truly world class IB Continuum School, we dedicate ourselves to inspire our students to achieve their personal best, promote a culture or respect and to make purposeful, proactive decisions.
Dubai School Opens UAE's First Mindfulness Room
We are delighted to announce the opening of our new "Mindfulness Room" in the school's Primary Department - a place for children to re-center themselves and grow as individuals while focusing on all things positive.
"Practicing mindfulness has profound impacts on children's health and overall well-being," says Rola Ghadban, the Mindfulness and Well-being Coordinator at GCS and the mastermind behind the project. "In my classrooms, I have seen how a daily mindfulness practice can help our students' mental clarity, emotional intelligence and improve focus. My goal is to transcend the power of this life skill into an innovative space, accessible to all."
