  • 2013-2014 fee schedule not provided.
  • 2012-2013 fees information not confirmed.
  • 2009-2010 fees information not confirmed.
  • 2007-2008 fees information not supplied. Figures in italics supplied by KHDA and not confirmed by AFPIS, year of validity not clear.
  • Website URL given in some sources is www.alfarooq.ae but is unavailable when last checked. Domain www.alfarooq.net has nothing to do with the school.
  • Owner of the school is Obaid-ur-Rahman Akram according to a report in Emirates 24-7 (03 Apr 2013), but according to The National (01 Apr 2013), he is "a spokesman for the school". Director of the school is Mr Akram Khan?
  • School plans to move to a new site in Al Ghusais (Al Qusais) by September 2014? New location map not found or supplied. Some sources give construction site location in Al Qusais Industrial Area 2 (GPS coordinates 25.277560,55.388624) but that appears to be incorrect - it is the location of Al Daghaya Block and Cement Industry, and they don't appear to be moving anytime soon (at least not in 2013).
  • Location is Hor Al Anz East, off Abu Hail Road next to the Hamriya Shopping Center. GPS coordinates 25.281944,55.342222 (not confirmed)? Some maps have other locations, including in Dubai Marina, but that looks like an error.
