Two schools in the UAE have been named in the Top 10 shortlists for the new $250,000 World’s Best School Prizes.
The initiative was launched this year by T4 Education in partnership with Accenture and American Express.
GEMS Legacy School, a private K-12 school in Dubai, is among the Top 10 institutions shortlisted for the World’s Best School Prize for Environmental Action.
Another school in Abu Dhabi, Shining Star International School, has been named in the Top 10 shortlist for the World’s Best School Prize for Innovation.
Vikas Pota, Founder of T4 Education and the World’s Best School Prizes, said, “We have launched the World’s Best School Prizes as a grassroots solution to help build the systemic change needed. By telling the stories of inspirational schools that are transforming the lives of their students and making a real difference to their communities, schools can share their best practices and have their voices heard at the top table to help transform education.
“I want to congratulate GEMS Legacy School and Shining Star International School for making the Top 10 shortlists for the inaugural World’s Best School Prizes. Educators all over the world will now be able to learn from the examples of these outstanding UAE schools.”
The five World’s Best School Prizes was founded by T4 Education in partnership with Accenture, American Express, Yayasan Hasanah, Templeton World Charity Foundation, and the Lemann Foundation.
