Indian Excellent Private School is a private K-12 school located in Al Azra, Sharjah. The school was opened in 1991 by the Karth Education Society (KES) as a school for Indian expatriates and local UAE students.
Indian Excellent Private School is affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and as such follows a CBSE curriculum with subjects being taught in Arabic as well as the option to learn a second language in Hindi or French.
Between Grades 11 and 12 the school offers Science and Commerce streams Subjects, English, General studies, Physical and Health Education, Work Experience and four stream based electives (Mathematics, Physics, chemistry, Biology, Business Studies, Accountancy, Economics, Computer Science, Informatics Practices).
The school offers a number of co-curricular activities including Games, Sports, Music, Drama, Dance, educational trips and picnics.
Indian Excellent Private School, Sharjah follows a house system, with students divided into Coral, Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire. The system is used to drive a (healthy) competitive spirit among students, as well as a sense of collective responsibility and of solidarity.
According to limited feedback through our survey, parents have not completely bought into current management, or the way the school is being run. One in two parents would recommend the school, below the average for the UAE of 66%. Worryingly students are said to have little sense of belonging at the school, and only "somewhat" enjoy going.
All parents that have responded to our survey have said that they have, at one time or another, thought of moving their child from the school. What will have stopped them will have been the dearth of choice in this segment of the school market.
Fees are not disclosed on the school's rather limited web site but they will lie very much in the value range - although that does not equal very affordable given the school's demographic of largely working/lower middle class Indian families.

I have two children studying in this school. The school has changed the color of the house and increased the PT days and we have to compulsory buy new uniforms and even socks. It's really comes as shocking for parents and expats when we are trying to meet ends and school imposes heavy prices. Even a simple pt tshirt that cost 12-15 aed is charged 25 - 30 AED.
My sincere intention is that such a great school having 24 years of reputation should not be lost by intolerance. Students come to learn, they should not be misguided by our wrong attitude. With regards, V.K.Swamy.
