Al Worood Academy Private School Dubai closure
  • A report in Emirates 24-7 on 28 January 2015, based on story in the Al Khaleej newspaper, said that the KHDA had "... announced the start of procedures to close down the Al Worood Academy Private School by the end of the current academic year".
  • The Dubai Al Worood school closure is at the request of management due to falling student numbers, currently the school has about 100 students. School capacity is for 3,000 students.
  • KHDA announcement not provided, not available on KHDA website. No information about pending school closure in KHDA directory entry for school. No announcement or information about closure on school website or Facebook page. No news about closure found in GN, KT, or TN.
  • The Abu Dhabi Al Worood school is also closing after the death of one of the students who was left locked in a school bus in October 2014. ADEC first announced they had instructed the school to close, and then in February 2015 the Abu Dhabi courts also instructed the school to close as part of the verdict in the trial case for the incident.
