Safa Private School Dubai review

Postby shawarma » 01 Oct 2008, 14:04

Safa Private School information page.

Safa School (or Al Safa School) is related to the Horizon English School, a primary school in Jumeirah-Al Wasl district near Safa Park. The original Horizon School location in Al Safa 1 district, near Jumeirah Primary School, was taken over by Safa School in September 2004 when Horizon moved to its new location.

Update: Safa School moved to the Meydan Rd in Al Quoz in 2012, taking over the building previously occupied by Dubai First School (which closed). The old Safa School location in Al Safa 1 was taken over by the Universal Academy of Excellence.

Safa and Horizon schools have the same owner or owners?

There was a spot of bother in April 2005 with the Ministry of Education and the Dubai Educational Zone - apparently some Safa School students had been registered on the Horizon School register or something, amongst other things. See the Horizon School topic for more about it, and for reviews about Horizon School.

Add reviews, information, comments about Safa School to this topic ...

Questions:

What are tuition fees for 2008-2009?
Safa School website information confusing (they have both 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 dates), KHDA information looks out of date (they say AED 15,000-22,500 for KG1 to Grade 4 for 2007-2008 but that looks like the fees that Safa school were charging for 2005-2006), and they also say a 16% increase in fees was approved for 2008-2009 :| .

Who is the Head teacher?
Mary Turlik (KHDA information - might be out of date) or Jane Knight?

What is teacher salary range and benefits package?

How many students?

My kids at safa school since 2006 and I feel the school standard is going down even more, the way of dealing with the parents is not encouraging at all and I am thinking of moving my kids to a better school.
