Three schools in the UAE have been shortlisted for international prizes that honor their programs that promote the future, their proficiency with digital learning, and their well-being efforts.
The International School Awards honor learning, teaching, community, well-being, leadership, and other tactical initiatives at international schools. They are sponsored by ISC Research, a UK-based educational data provider.
Ten areas, including diversity, sustainability, and community relations, have nominated schools.

The Digital Technology in Learning Award, which honors a school program that employs technology to teach students digital responsibility, has Ajman Academy and Dubai College on its shortlist.
The Future Pathways Award, which evaluates how a school program is equipping students with the knowledge and values to support them in future endeavors, has also nominated Dubai College.
For the Wellbeing Award, The Millennium School has been shortlisted. Nearly 2,800 students from pre-primary to grade 12 are enrolled in the 22-year-old school in Al Qusais.
