I mean none!!
I have a son that needs mild academic support for grade 9.. At this point money isn't a problem.

Is it hopeful that some waiting lists will drop??

I applied for all.

Oh ok.
But I thought you are not allowed to switch schools in dubai in middle of the year?
correct. you'd be stuck with the less reputable school until September next year.

Why don't you try home schooling this one year and then register your child in all the possible schools starting January 2014?

Thanks all. Ill look into regents on Sunday

Today I called Cambridge , they told me call back sept 15 that when the final admission list will show. Do you think this applied to other schools?

I'm not sure about homeschooling since I'm a full time PHd student and mom myself.

Ill call regents on Sunday I hope they have places plus learning support
