Teaching approach of the school

All students participate in stimulating and challenging curriculum programs in the major areas of study, including Languages, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social and Environmental Studies, Physical Education and Health as well as the Arts. The fundamental concepts that lead the education are holistic learning—representing the notion that all knowledge is interrelated and that the curriculum should cater to the development of the whole person. Cultural awareness and a focus on our Islamic values go hand in hand with intercultural understanding—representing the notion that school communities should encourage and promote international-mindedness by respecting the school's own culture before engaging with, and exploring other cultures.

Dar Al Marefa Curriculum is based on encouraging thinking skills, independent researching and learning like searching in the libraries and through the web. Also, scientific experiments are done in laboratories. Educational activities are organized frequently, where students can learn from their own experience and improve their research and communication skills.
