American International School Dubai [Al Andalus] reviews

Postby shawarma » 03 Jan 2009, 17:29

American International School Dubai (AISD or AIS Dubai) appears to be a new name for Al Andalus Private School (AlAndalus School of Dubai).

Not to be confused with the American School of Dubai in Jumeirah or the Al Andalus School in Al Ain.

The KHDA still lists AISD as the Andalus School (with two entries, and different fees for each one, the highest has been used in the information page on the assumption that fees usually go up, not down). Information still needed (please reply if you can help update the page :))

  • When did school name change?
  • Description of school location:
  • Principal / Headteacher name:
  • Executive Body/Owner:
  • Curriculum: UAE/US and also Canadian? An organisation called the Pan American Academy has apparently signed an agreement with AIS to establish the British Columbia curriculum in the school for grades 1-12. Report is undated and unconfirmed. Does anyone know more?
  • Nationality of most students, or nationality breakdown:
  • Number of teaching staff (approx):
  • Nationality of most teaching staff, or nationality breakdown:
  • How much are the annual fees (and what is included / excluded - tuition, sports, transport, uniforms, extra-curricular activities):
  • Breakdown of fees by grade if possible:
  • Teacher salary range per month (and details of package - accommodation, flights, medical):
  • Any other comments which would be helpful for students, teachers, and/or parents:

Dear Shawarma,

My name is Shatha Al Khatib and I’m writing you to from Harbor Communication, the PR agency for American International School.
Thanks for all of your efforts to provide a clear insight about the schools in Dubai.
However, the information mentioned in Dubaifaqs.com about American International School Dubai is quite outdated and can be misleading.
And on behalf of AIS and its management, I request you kindly remove this information until we provide you with accurate data and details.
Kind regards,

Shatha Al-Khatib
