What are the schools in Sharjah like?

Live in Sharjah? Answer this Question

"This school holds a very high prestige, SES staff are friendly and the school structure is exactly what you would expect from a school in UK," remarked another expat living in Sharjah with children attending Sharjah English School.

"Have a look around and compare others in the area. There are not many that can compare. This school was set up in 1974 and has good sized classes. Near enough to Dubai and easy to get to," said another expat in Sharjah with children at Sharjah English School.

"Victoria English School is an excellent school with dedicated staff. Like every school it has its problems and issues but value for money I think it is excellent," remarked another parent with kids at Victoria English School in Sharjah.

"Advice is difficult to give without a specific question. Each parent has different issues/boxes to tick with regard to what they want with regard to the education of their child/ren. As a happy parent of a happy child that will be starting her 3rd year at VES in September, I'd just say that if you have a question at an interview or an open day - ASK - the staff are open, honest and professional :) Provided March, 2007," explained one expat living in Sharjah, UAE.

"As a happy parent of a happy child who will be commencing her 3rd year at VES in September, in my opinion there is really little advice that one parent can give to another regarding the schooling of that person's child. It depends on the individual requirements of the parent whether each or any particular school ticks all the right boxes to ultimately make the right decision as to where to place your child. To ensure this, if you obtain an interview or attend an open day, don't be afraid to ask questions, the staff are open, honest, friendly and professional," said another parent with children at Victoria English School in Sharjah.
