I just visited your site. I am an Australian passport holder, we are moving to Sharjah and I have 5 years old son. He should be in year 1 by next year. Can you tell me the enrollment time please?

Best regards, Thabit

I am Australian and my husband is Omani. Our 4 children go to this school. Our eldest was at the school from the first day it opened. This school is amazing. My children are all learning the same things that I learnt at the same age back in Australia. The school teaches Arabic, Islamic and the swimming and sport facilities are great. The teachers are always so supportive to both parents and students. The principal is always seen around the school and is not just sitting behind her desk as many principals do. I can't rave about this school enough and the teachers are the cherry on top of this huge educational cake.

Only international because of teachers. Most teachers good, management not so. Some student poorly behaved. Choose carefully.
