The school is no worse or better than a typical international schools in Dubai, and there are plenty that are considered "better." The difficulty is finding a place if you need to move soon as the school year begins shortly.

Check out the **********.com forum as it's an excellent source for information on schools in Dubai.
Hi Tallyho,
we were looking at that school as we are from Victoria, Australia and it has the same curriculum as what they teach here. what other schools do you suggest ? we are looking at them starting in January 2012. are the schools eaiser to get into then or just as hard?

Default Teaching Salary

Hi, I am new here and have a thousand questions, Hopefully I can get some answers. I plan on moving to Dubai for a number of years, long term. I am a certified teacher from the USA for grades Preschool to Grade 8 in all subjects and am holding a valid Utah state teachers license. My BA is in elementary education. I am about halfway finished with my Masters which is in ESL (English as a Second Language) from preschool to University level. I have 5 years experience teaching in a private school in the USA, 14 months in ESL in China and quite a few short term assignments with refugees and also 6 months in South Africa. I have a TEFL Certification and a Business English certification. I have good references. How easy is it to get a good teaching job? What kind of salary can I expect? Also will the school allow me to rent my housing as my fiancee is Kyrgyzstani and is already living in Dubai and we plan to get married and buy or rent our own apartment. How should I go about looking for a job, Should I come there prior to moving or should I be able to do it before I move? Any other advice would be appreciated. Thanks for the help

health care in Dubai is of very high quality. Hospitals (both private and public) boast of the latest breakthroughs, modern facilities, competent doctors, and medical staff. People in Dubai have easy access to all their medical needs. As a matter of fact, the ratio of doctors to patients is very high in Dubai.

hi everyone,

Our family is moving to dubai next summer so my 2 children will start school Sep 2012. The villa we will be provided with is in Al Safa - near JESS.

I understand JESS is near impossible to get into so i have been looking at other local schools for my 4 and 6yr old. I have already put applications in for Safa and Horizon.

We are visiting Dubai in oct to look around schools and pay the registration fees that most schools ask for (safa and horizon did not charge).

Schools we are planning to visit are - safa, horizon, english college dubai, emerites international jumeirah, gems wellington primary and star international Umm Sheif.

please does anyone have any experience of these schools? are there any others local to the area that i have missed?

Also how many schools should i apply for? the registration/administration fee is per child so could get very expensive! Also all the schools have been very vague about waiting lists - do you think it is likely i will get a place for both children (fs2 & yr2) at any of these schools?

any advice, feedback or comments on this would be greatfuly recieved, thank you.

I'd appreciate any feedback on the following nursery/play schools from parents who chose or rejected them - Raffles, Blossom, Willow Nursery, Little Wonders,Children's Oasis, Rising Star. We have a toddler and he and we love his current play school so I am hoping we choose the right one again!

Default Good Schools in Dubai

I have kids studying in DPS Dubai (Delhi Private School). earlier they were studying in KGS (Kinder Garten Starters) which I admit is also a good school but since moving them to DPS Dubai, have seen my kids grow better academically and also activity wise. It's also very economical falling below 10k a year which explains why it is not so easy to get admission. It also has been rated good by KHDA standards 3 years in a row so for those who are looking at schools with good education and not so expensive this is a good recommendation. you can learn more about dpsdubai dpsdubai dot com

Perhaps they need to increase the school fees a bit and pay the bus rental people a little more money to train their drivers on how to keep a safe distance whilst on Sheikh Zayed Road.
DPS may be a good school for everything that you have mentioned but even the 20K that I would potentially save by sending my child there is not worth the risk.
