Their first four schools opened in 2005, in four different locations with four different curricula. Today Taaleem owns and operates ten premium schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and the company is viewed as a sector leader in international education policy and operations. Its creative and inclusive schools serve the needs of c9,000 students each day, helping them to identify and develop their individual passions and talents.
