Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Salam Nursery was established in 1985 and operated out of a small villa near Al Ghurair Center. By 1988, Al Salam Private School was established with the opening of a KG section in a villa adjacent to the nursery. As the school expanded, the classes were extended to Year 3.
The school grew rapidly and with the growth came a demand for more space. As a result, the nursery section was moved to Al Muteena Street. The school and nursery were then relocated to a new 4 villa complex in Hor Al Anz, opposite Hamriyah Park and extended to Year 6.
By the Grace of Allah, in 2000 the school started construction of its own building in Al Nahda 2 – Al Ghusais, that was to include the nursery, primary and secondary sections. The school came to its present location in 2002 and continues to expand and grow for the better.

Teaching approach of the school

Al Salam Private School follows the Cambridge International Curriculum with slight modifications to better suit the learning environment that is unique to the U.A.E. The curriculum is designed to be age-appropriate and meet the developmental stages of the students. The school expects its students to do their best within their capabilities.

The curriculum takes into account various types of education and learning styles. The goal of the curriculum is to encourage students to be empathetic, responsible and capable of critical thinking, analytical thought and independent reasoning.
