02 July 2013 - Al Fajr School closing (ADEC announcement)
  • Al Fajr Private School is being closed by the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) in July 2014 as part of their Abu Dhabi villa school closures.
  • No information supplied about plans (if there are any) for relocation or a new campus building.
  • Official website no longer at www.alfajrintschool.com (is spam). Presumably email address admin@alfajrintschool.com is no longer valid. Email address alfajris@eim.ae and alfajris@emirates.net.ae might both be still valid. Domain URL www.al-fajrinternational.com is for the AlFajr School in India, has no connection to AFEIS in the UAE.
  • Al Fajr School Facebook page at facebook.com/alfajrschool does not appear to be an official school page, and is not regularly updated anyway.
13 May 2009 review
  • Al Fajr International English School (AFIES) is not really an international or English school in the way many families or teachers might expect. It is an Islamic school is for Emirati and Arab Muslim families who want an English education for their children, rather than western expats wanting an international or British school such as the Al Khubairat British School.
  • AFEIS contact information gives tel number as +971-2-4454922 which is incorrect. Correct number is +971-2-4494522. Tel +971-2-4488676 also seen in some sources.
  • Email address alfajris@eim.ae should also be valid.
  • Could be a good place for moderately naughty children - the AFEIS information provided says "The school ignores minor misbehavior."
  • AFEIS websites at www.alfajr.20m.com, alfajr.bizhosting.com appear to be unofficial student websites about the school.
  • AlFajr English International School (AFEIS) also called Al Fajr Academy, Al Fajr School, Al Fajr English School, Al Fajr International School, Al Fajr English Inti School, Al Fajr English Intl School, Al Fajr English Int Pvt School, Al Fajr English Int'l Private School, El Fajr English International School, Muslim English International School in Abu Dhabi and so on.
