[Warning] Al Thuraya School website URL at www.althuraya.ae (in Arabic) has popups attempting to install software on computer, which could be a security risk. Suggest visiting cached copies of website from Google.

  • Full name is Al Thuraya Private School. Listed on MOE website as Al Thoraya Private School. Also referred to as Al Thuria Private School.
  • School originally called Khalid bin Walid Special School? Arabic school but English taught in English, Maths, and Science classes it seems (US books and curriculum).
  • Website listed as www.athp.sch.ae returns DNS error, presumably email address given as athpsch@emirates.net.ae doesn't work.
