Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year
Dear Students, Parents & Guardians,
Welcome back to the Next Generation Family. We are thrilled that you have chosen to continue with us as we form an important part of your child’s development. At NGS we value "Excellence in academics, excellence in character, and excellence in faith." We want to see this in all areas of our community and understand that the relationship between staff, parents and students is vitally important. NGS-Dubai aims to provide a comprehensive educational experience that cultivates, nurtures and combines academic excellence with Islamic values, delivers an outstanding Arabic program, and fosters civic responsibility to develop successful and contributing members of a global society.
To complement this, our mission is clear - we have a lifelong commitment to foster the knowledge, life skills, Islamic and cultural identity, and values of our students. Achieved through critical engagement with the best of US education coupled with the knowledge of Islamic and local traditions, the incorporation of a life skills program in the context of the contemporary world plays a pivotal role.
In order to ensure our community flourishes and works together we want this Parent-Student Handbook to outline our relationship and provide a wealth of information to both new and returning parents. This important document outlines many of the expectations for members of the NGS community and is full of essential information. Therefore, it is vital that all families read it thoroughly.
We look forward to meeting you all in person as the year progresses and to having a fantastic and enriching academic year.
- David Kinkead - Deputy Superindent
