The Arabian Ranches School (Ranches Primary School) based in Arabian Ranches Dubai was an intervention project for DAR. The School is equipped with thoughtful amenities for the students and provides excellent conveniences to the surrounding community neighborhood. The school maintains the same modernized Moroccan architectural aesthetic as the neighborhood, using a range of saturated beiges and ornate detailing to bring the experience to life. The school services students from Nursery level to primary school range students. The facilities include but are not limited to internal courtyards for indoor playing spaces where kids can escape the heat, outdoor play spaces shaded by tensile structures, rooftop play areas and sports courts, a football field, and half-size Olympic swimming pool. Further major indoor amenities include a large-scale canteen serving both students and faculty, a multipurpose hall, science labs, and a library. Modern education fitted into a supportive community defines this school.
