Sunmarke School is a school that you and your child will love, and one where we will lead your child to great heights.
Fortes Education schools have been providing a world-class education to students in the UAE for over 35 years, and here at Sunmarke School we offer a premium education that is, quite simply, amazing. At the heart of our approach is our embrace of Positive Education. This paradigm shift in global education was founded and spearheaded in the Middle East by Sunmarke School and we are the only school in the UAE recognised by the International Positive Education Network.
As parents, we all understand that our children will face many daunting challenges in the future and that academic excellence alone will not be sufficient to ensure their success or happiness. However, through Sunmarke School's whole-school Positive Education (PosEd) culture, we have become global leaders in implementing a holistic approach to excellence, where outstanding academic outcomes are nurtured and underpinned by the science of positive psychology, wellbeing and happiness.
My family and I recently had an incredibly disappointing and frustrating experience with this private school that we were considering for our 4-year-old son. We initially went for an assessment in November, and the school told us that our son was not at the level to start Year 1 the following academic year. They suggested we try again for assessment in 5 or 6 months.
A couple of months later, I went back to the school and begged them to reserve a spot for my son. I was even willing to pay extra to secure a place for him, they said this was not possible to do but they reassured me that there would be a spot available for my son in case he qualified for Year 1 admission.
Fast forward to today when we went in for another assessment. After a brief 10-minute private encounter with my son, the school staff claimed that his phonics skills were still not good enough for Year 1, yet his English was too good for the Year 1 class designed for non-English speakers. To make matters worse, they informed us that there were no spaces left in the Year 1 class with special support, and that our son was physically too big to repeat FS2. They had the audacity to claim that they only wanted the best for my child while judging him based on his physical size, which is absurd and unprofessional.
I was understandably upset and frustrated by the school's hypocrisy and lack of transparency. When I expressed my dissatisfaction with their decision, the head of the school took offense to my language and abruptly ended the conversation.
In the end, we left the school feeling extremely disappointed and deceived. I would have appreciated honesty from the beginning, rather than being led on by false promises and ultimately rejected for dubious reasons. I strongly advise against considering this school for your child's education, as their actions demonstrate a lack of professionalism, empathy, and transparency.

My daughter has been attending the school from the very beginning. Love the facilities, positive education and quality of the teachers. The best for me is that she is happy to go to school every day.
I moved my daughters to the school from an Indian curriculum. I am very happy with the exposure and education being close to reality. Most often the education system is not agile enough to cope with changes however-the school has shown that it doesn’t loose its relevance in this changing environment. All the best and keep up the good work.
Awsome school great teachers great learning :) amazing !!! Making students going everything correctly I can’t belive it this school is awsome I cant imagine it being more better it’s great teachers lessons people all kind hearted well done keep it up !
The STEAM Programme and Positive Education curriculum at Sunmarke are remarkable. My daughter has received multiple opportunities to participate in international competitions and has been able to meet and understand talent around the world – which is important. The facilities at the school are great too. In just three years, the school has been making tremendous year on year progress, makes you think of how experienced, dedicated and hardworking the SLT and teachers are.
This school is putting to much pressure on its students for example too much homework and no freedom, without educating the students well . I am a witness of seeing a student being harassed by a teacher, it’s is also extremely expensive.In addition to this , every time there are inspectors we are forced to act like every thing is fine and there are consequences when we act normally . The lessons are long and they say this school is about postive education but are the complete opposite.
