Headmaster Stuart McCathieSince our founding in 1984 ALIS has continually evolved for the better  But our founders’ emphasis on challenging the status quo, commitment to middle class, inspiring teachers and highly individualized instruction are values we hold dear today

This is an exciting time for American Lyceum International School. In December 2018, American Lyceum International School got the International Award of the Best School in Dubai, UAE. In 2018 we also got the ISO certification and got our SOPs standardized against international Standards.

We’ve graduated generations of alumni empowered to forge their own path. And our students learn to respect and consider the viewpoints of others as they work through complex problems. That desire for different thoughts and opinions has steadily grown the diversity of our campus over the decades, giving our students the ability to form meaningful relationships across stereotypical, socio-economic and global divides.

While we are proud of the history that we’ve built together, we challenge ourselves to be better tomorrow than we are today, and are constantly looking for ways to further serve our students and community. Lyceum will continue to adjust to fully prepare our graduates for college and for life in a global environment, but our consistent core values will continue to guide us into the future just as they have for the past 90 years.

Our school has an incredible history. It’s long been a place that helps students find their passion in an environment of not only of tolerance and empathy but of true commitment .

Advisory Board :

The board’s primary functions are to keep the direction right.

All implementation, overseeing of day-to-day operations, personnel matters and relationships with constituents are the responsibility of the head and the school’s administrative team. The board relies upon the administration to hear and adjudicate any grievances according to the policies found in the staff, parent and student handbook. Advisors are the leaders in their own field of expertise. The Board of Advisors does not serve as a court of appeals.
