Low pay and poor benefits for teachers. They expect far too much for the compensation package. Dangerous drop off and pick up points for students. Shoddy and dated facilities. How are they accredited?

The American International School is SO GREAT. The teachers are incredible and high qualified, as in professors of Yale. The students enjoy an enjoyable learning experience while contributing to the latest scientific studies at just high school, conducting high-level experiments with latest-technologically managed risk management. The students have to give several entrance exams to enter, in compliance with global standards of the IB, the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK), and the tough education standards of the United States. My experience was great. The teachers train you to top the IB exams, and in a school where everybody is a topper, what can you expect?

There is no comparison of AISA. Its campus is beautiful, and the educational system along with the implementation of high-tech and safe facilities is exemplary. The teachers come from excellent bachgrounds and help the students on their way to success, from KG to 12. My children have been very successful at AISA. Their education is by far among the best not just in UAE, but in the whole world. I am absolutely stunned by how co-operative the director of the school along with each and every staff - even the cleaners - are so friendly with students, parents, and visitors of the school. All the activities and research my children get to participate in helps my children learn and grow very fast. Clearly, AISA is an OUTSTANDING school.
