- Website not available at www.akns.net (is now spam). Main domain seems to be www.gemsakns.com.
27 November 2008 review
- Multiple copies of same website at www.akns.net, www.gemsakns.com, and www.gemseducation.com. However, www.akns.com is blocked in the UAE (is probably not related to the Al Khaleej National School).
14 September 2006 review

- AKNS is accredited by the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA) in the USA.
- Boys and girls segregated in the high school.
- Joined GEMs network in 1992.
