It seems like everybody on here is either going there or knows someone going there. After 12 months it will all end in tears, mark my words.

my daughter starts that school in September. KG1.

Was at an induction with the principle the other night. Got to say, the school looks pretty good. On a par with most other schools, it looks as if parking will be a disaster and the drop off area not much better.

Good luck teachers. Remember and enjoy the challenge of living and teaching in a different country..i use the word 'different' loosely

I work in Sharjah at the moment but after I have completed my contract I would be interested in working in Dubai to teach. I have two children and wondered if Dubai schools also offer free tuition to staff children. I am hoping to move to the Jumeira or Silicon Oasis area. Any advice on when to start searching to shift after second year would be appreciated.
