  • Some directories do list an "Al Raha Gardens School" as an existing school, operated by Taaleem or Aldar Academies. But no such school exists according to Aldar Academies, Taleem, or ADEC. Refer to either Raha International School (Taaleem) or Al Yasmina School (Aldar) which are both in Al Raha Gardens area.

  • Contact details removed, information received from Beacon Education was that this is not one of their schools or proposed schools. Original information was that Beacon was planning to open a school in or with the name Al Raha Gardens. The Beacon School which did open in Al Raha Gardens in 2006 is called Raha International School.
  • Unknown if Al Raha Gardens School is the name of a planned school or not, or an incorrect name for a different school being established by Aldar Academies.
  • Reply to the forum topic with any updated information or corrections.

  • Al Raha Gardens School expected to open by 2008. Contact details given for Beacon Education in Dubai, not the new school.
  • Not the same as Raha International School, although RIS is also managed by Beacon Education.
  • Another school is scheduled to open in Al Raha Gardens in September 2008 (possibly called Garden Island Academy) to be run by Aldar Academies.
  • Maybe the two schools are one and the same. No further details found so far.
