        Both my kids are studying in the school. According to me, its one of the best Indian school in Dubai. My kids have improved both in academic and extracurricular activities. Teachers go out of the way to identify and help students in area of interest. All students are given equal opportunity.

        Huda AhmedReview based on friends/family/personal experiencewrote a review on December 10, 2018 8:19 AM
        Agreed, the school produces outstanding results but as an ex student I have to say that it was the worst experience of my life. They do not pay attention to potential or actual bullying complaints which was one of the main reasons why I switched schools. The school tends to focus on those who already have talents in certain fields and do not foster the learning or creativity of other students if they aren't the best at it, therefore, limiting learning opportunities for other students who have the potential to gain the aforementioned abilities. The facilities are great but the school doesn't use them to teach and grow the talents of those who don't already have them, rather, they use these facilities to make the best amongst them shine. This is not wrong, but it's completely unfair to those who deserve the same opportunities as others. Modern High doesn't have much of a holistic approach and they completely change their style of teaching when the KHDA school inspections take place in order to gain that prestigious "outstanding" status. I did have some bad experiences with staff wherein the teacher was extremely rude and condescending; she kept pushing me down and insulting me in front of the entire class. In conclusion, this school is for those who learn through memorisation, not for those who prefer understanding a topic. I absolutely hated this school and I'm so happy I left.

        Not up to the standard as expected from an "exceptional school" of Dubai. There is a lack of conducive environment for a holistic learning environment for the child.
