Iran builds its biggest ever school in Sharjah

The educational complex Iran is constructing in Sharjah will turn into an international school and its IB-based curriculum will be taught in English.

The director of Iranian schools in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has said that Iran’s biggest ever educational complex which is under construction in Sharjah will soon admit as many as 2,500 students.

Shahbaz Goodarzi made the comment in an interview with the Pupils Association News Agency (PANA) in early September and added that the educational complex in Sharjah is the biggest ever project of the Iranian Education Ministry at home or abroad.

The following is the translation of what else Goodarzi told PANA:

The biggest educational center in Iran is 18,000 square meters in area, but the complex in Sharjah – which is about 80 percent complete – is 29,500 square meters in area.

When complete, the complex can offer educational services to up to 2,500 students at all levels. Iran is about to turn this complex into an international school to admit students from all countries.

The school will follow the educational system of the International Baccalaureate (IB). This will help students who secure this school’s certificate land a job or continue their studies anywhere in the world.

Educational materials in this complex which are in line with the IB system [lessons and academic content] will be offered in English.
