Dubai Boarding School

Discussion in 'Teaching overseas' started by Happy_Daze, Feb 12, 2012.

  1. Does anyone out there have recent information about "the first boarding school in the Middle East"? I'm interested to know more about their Rep-utation, if the salary is competitive for Dubai, details about teacher accommodation, extracurricular expectations and whether or not teachers are generally a happy lot.
    Anything you can offer is welcome!

    There's already at least 2 boarding schools in the Middle East. One in Jordan and one in Qatar. If a third is coming to the UAE, I haven't heard, but they certainly shouldn't be advertising as the first. To me, that wouldn't speak well to their spirit of integrity (or alternately, their knowledge of the region and/or boarding schools).

    And I've just exposed my own lack of knowledge. Oops. The one you speak of has been open for a couple years, I just never noticed. I wonder how many boarding students they have?
    The other boarding schools pre-dated it by several years.

    Which job are you thinking of going for? PM me if you don't want to say on this forum. I am fairly familiar with this school, although I don't work there.
