Parent's Review of American Academy for Girls in Dubai, UAE

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

American Academy for Girls

In what town or city is this school located?

Dubai

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

nothing, may be bilingual local

What grade levels are represented at this school?

KG-12 despite it becomes a mess after grade 5

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

By car or school bus. It's very far away and difficult to reach

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Bad, lack, the teachers do their best but most of them does not have experience and if they do have, they leave the school after 1 or 2 years.

I saw the worst Elementary School play directed by P.E teacher. Is she qualified for directing a play? It was ridiculous! My daughter had to attend lot of rehearsals after school and she missed several school days because of that silly "production" They offer Cooking, Islamic, Arabic, as extra school activities. Are they interested? Some public schools are much better and they offer much more.

The school does not support arts because performing "sinful" for this culture. Therefore, just 2 teachers do their best to keep the girls happily learning what the School Principal lets them teach.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

Not at all! They do not follow any curriculum and my daughter wasted her time at AAG. We missed lot of money because it is a very expensive school.

Now, we are moving to US and my daughter needs after school support to be ready for the school in that country. It is outrageous

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Mothers of wealthy families are in the parent's association and my input was never appreciated. They're Muslims or married with Muslims and very conservative. They don't do too much. They socialize at school. The administration of the school is not qualified. The Assistance Principals have no experience, they're bossy and they do not solve problems.

The School Principal does not direct the school as she should and she changes her mind and mood often. My daughter suffered bullying and nobody helped her. I know that very good and reputable teachers do suffer bullying from administration as well. Foreign languages are a joke. They learn 3 words in Spanish throughout the year and that's it.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

No! Don't do it! Unless you are a conservative Muslim and you do not want your daughter interacting with other cultures. Many Muslim parents do want them interacting but powerful and uncultured parents manage the School Principal as a marionette.
