Any other comments which would be helpful for students, teachers, and/or parents: For local Emirati's only with perferance towards those with Abu Dhabi citizenship. Teachers are making salaries that are unheard of in the U.S. Not the most qualified in terms of experience but I guess nationality & skin color go long way here in some cases.
