This school feels like a literal jail to us students. The school cares more of our behavior than our actual education. They dont give any opportunity for students to relax and enjoy their school life as they stopped giving us any form of fun days at school after the assistant head changed and head of secondary. The school really shows that they do not care about our wellbeing and act very fake infront of the KHDA. They literally almost suspended a student for silencing their phone and refusing to hand their phone to a teacher. They will use every opportunity to suspend a student. For national day they decided to put everything on the local students and then decided to keep asking for money for them to pay and made it chaotic for the students organizing it. One of the teachers who claimed to be responsible for national day decided to say 'let the students pay'. The only teachers that really deserve appreciation are the art department (only one of the teachers) and the biology teachers and the pe department. Some students are very miserable her and also feel like coming to school is going to jail. Leaving DIS is a very good decision in my opinion.

I've been to Deira International School for nine years and it has a major bullying problem no one bothers to address and at the cafeteria they legit serve expired food and the teachers suck. I think the only department that's okay is the English department. My science teacher last year (Mr O'toole) didn't bother teaching us and was absent half the time anyway. When he wasn't he would make us do useless experiments that wouldn't even come up on the test! My maths teacher (ms visser)legit told her class that she would teach us if she was paid more. Oh and everyone is depressed there.

Teachers are very mean and cruel. There are very little good teachers in this school and I’m in and I’m still studying in it. If you’re in year 7; your social status in the grade is based on how good you are in the game fortnite and football. If you have a different opinion about the game and one of the popular boys in my grade hear you will get bullied. The popular girls are nice. I got bullied in this school. Don’t send your child here!!! The only adults in this school who actually help are miss Williams. (The head of year 7) and my counselor. ( Miss Yusr Mahmoud). None of the students will respect your child if you send them here.
