A new SABIS school is set to open in Al Jada. It will be the 15th school in the UAE from a group best known for its Choueifat schools, and will open from KG1 to Grade 5 in September 2021. The school will add grades each year until it reaches capacity at Grade 12.

The school will offer the SABIS in-house curriculum, which is largely based upon the National Curriculum for England and Wales, with students taking IGCSE examinations in Grade 10 and the option of either A Levels or Advance Placement courses in the final two grades of the school.

The school says that it will be recognised as a provider of top-quality education to a highly diverse student body. It says: "SIS-Aljada will strive to help all students achieve their full potential, prepare them for success in college, equip them with the ability and desire for lifelong learning, and strengthen their civic, ethical and moral values. SIS-Aljada will maintain high standards of efficiency and accountability throughout its operation."

The group routinely claims it achieves excellent academic results, and says its students attend many of the world's best universities. However, none of the SABIS schools back up these claims with published data, or provide details of academic achievement at their individual schools.

Al Jada, described by the school as Sharjah's largest life-style mega-project, offers, SABIS says, an extensive area of land needed to accommodate the new school, and its wide range of facilities. These facilities include "spacious" classrooms, science and computer laboratories, and a dedicated SABIS Integrated Testing and Learning (ITL) Hall where students can take computerised exams. It will also house a theatre, cafeteria, library and extensive sports facilities, including a semi-Olympic swimming pool, an indoor and outdoor basketball and tennis courts, and a full-size soccer field surrounded by a running track.

In common with all the SABIS/Choueifat schools, fees are not published.  However, based on those at the Choueifat Schools in Sharjah, and Dubai Investment Park (the newest school in Dubai), we would expect the school to be mid-range, with KG1 fees of around AED 20,000 to AED 24,000 with Grade 12 fees eventually being around AED 45,000.
