Our Uniform and Dress Code

At ISCS Nad Al Sheba, we set high expectations on personal appearance onsite, while on trips outside the school, and in the local community. Students are ambassadors of our school, representing ISCS, as well as yourself, as the parent, and are required to maintain the positive brand at all times. Our aim is to achieve consistency across all ages, with our uniform and dress code, ensuring neat and presentable student attires at all times, as they take pride in being a member of ISCS Nad Al Sheba.

The school uniform is mandatory for all students at ISCS Nad Al Sheba. Parents’ cooperation is sought to ensure that their child/children represent themselves, their families, and the school, by wearing the uniform at all times.
