Welcome to the JESS website! Whether you are a prospective student, parent, staff member or interested party I know that you will enjoy browsing the pages on offer. This website intends to inspire as well as inform. Is that not what schools are meant to do?
As a not for profit school children will always be at the heart of every decision made at JESS. Our strapline is 'Making a Difference'. I have no doubt that you will begin to gain a true understanding of this as you look through all that we offer here at JESS – making a difference to oneself, to those around you and to those in the wider world.
Our mission statement takes this a step further - 'a school that has a global reputation for a unique brand of education that challenges young people to make a difference'. JESS has developed this 'unique brand' for over 40 years here in the dynamic city of Dubai. The UAE has built a global reputation for innovation, entrepreneurship and opportunity over this period and JESS has been at the forefront of the educational sector as a consistently outstanding school. However, we will never become complacent. We are outward facing and listen to all stakeholders in the pursuit of 'standing out'.
Wonderful relationships permeate our school. Please come and visit if you are able. You will not be disappointed.
