Al Yasmina School Abu Dhabi reviews

Postby shawarma » 24 Aug 2008, 13:48

Al Yasmina School Raha Gardens (AYS) - information page.

AlYasmina School is a new K-12 school opening in Al Raha Gardens, and is presumably the Al Raha Gardens School or Raha Island Academy (renamed if it existed under one of those names) which was previously mentioned as one of the new Aldar Academies schools. Aldar said they plan to build 20 schools by 2012. So far they've built 2.

AYS is initially a primary school up to Year 8 or 9 (both levels given in AYS information), and adding a grade each year to end up at Year 13 (equivalent to Grade 12 in schools with "Grades" instead of "Years"). Curriculum is UK National Curriculum but students of all nationalities are welcomed.

The principal, Bob Malone, was previously at Sharjah English College and Sharjah English School (secondary and primary sections of same school) which has a good reputation in the expat community in Sharjah, and Cambridge High School in Dubai.

Questions:

Teacher salary package and conditions? Presumably it should be decent enough, based on the level of fees charged.
Number of students starting in September 2008?
Any comments about school from/for teachers, students, parents?
Please use the forum for questions, not the PM system.
