About Jebel Ali School (JAS)

Jebel Ali School (JAS) is an evolution of Jebel Ali Primary School which was originally built to provide education for the children of expatriate workers involved in the construction of the largest man-made port in the world.  It opened its doors on September 22, 1977 and has since seen a varied and exciting life. When the port construction project was complete, the village was handed over to the Government of Dubai, but Jebel Ali Primary School remained under the control of its Board of Governors.

The school’s independent and non-profit status was cemented in 1986 by obtaining a Decree from His Highness Sheikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Ruler of Dubai. This was a major landmark in the school’s history.

Jebel Ali School evolved into an entirely British Curriculum establishment but never lost its desire to cater for children of all nationalities and abilities. Its multicultural and cosmopolitan profile is one of its most attractive features to this day.

My niece joined this school a few years ago. On many occasions she has come home to her parents explaining how pupils are unkind, make personal and religious remarks. Mock her and she has made very few friends. She keeps asking her mum to leave. The kids are not kind but rough and not taught how to behave within a school environment. Such a shame. We could have gone to an American school as she was born in the US. Wouldn't recommend it.
