Ambassador International Academy school tuition fee structure, general information
Ambassador International Academy (AIA) in Dubai is a different school from the Ambassador Indian School, also in Dubai, also operated by Ambassador Education Group.
There is also an Ambassador Indian School in Sharjah, but not (yet?) an Ambassador International School in Sharjah.
|Discounted annual fees 2019-2020||28,400||30,400||32,400||34,600||34,600||36,600||36,600||36,600|
|Annual tuition fees (AED) 2019-2020||45,850||51,850||51,850||59,600||59,600||59,600||59,600||59,600|
- Discount amount ~40% (varies depending on grade) for 2019-2020. Discount amount will reduce by ~5% in following years i.e. 35% for 2020-2021, 30% for 2021-2022, etc, but check with AIA if that is correct. Policy might change or we might have misunderstood. Not clear if discounts apply to new students enrolling in future years, or only founding students who enrolled in 2019-2020.
- 2020-2021 Sibling discounts are 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% for 1st to 5th child in each family e.g. if 3 children then first has 5% discount, 2nd 10% discount, 3rd 15% discount. Exception is for two children families, only the second child gets a discount (10%), no discount for the first. No discounts for 2019-2020 academic year?
- 2019-2020 fees charged are discounted for all students from the KHDA approved fees. Tuition fees include English, Maths, Science text books, resource fee, student ID card. Additional charges: Registration fee AED 500 (non-refundable). Assessment fee AED 500 (non-refundable, deducted from first term fees). Sibling discounts
- Mobile phone number +971-50-8464899.
- School will eventually be KG-12 (or FS1-13) but will initially open for PreKG to Grade 5 or Year 5.
- Additional email contacts: admission enquiries firstname.lastname@example.org, parent relationship office and transport email@example.com.
- Location is Al Khail Gate area in Al Quoz. There was mention by Ambassador Group of an Indian ICSE curriculum school planned for Al Khail Gate area. Unknown if that's a different school still planned, or if they changed their minds and made it a British and IB school.
Teaching jobs at AIA
- Teacher salary figure of AED 15,000-25,000 per month given in a report in The National about affordable education in Dubai, 12 Oct 2019. AIA was mentioned as a much better value option for an IB school compared to others in Dubai. The Ambassador Education boss, Mr Kamal Kalwani, was quoted as saying "We are not compromising on salaries of teachers ..."
- Teacher salaries seen in job vacancy advertisements online were given as AED 5,000-15,000 (job postings dated Feb-May 2019).
- 2019: Mr James Lynch (Principal). Previously principal at Dubai International Academy.
AIA curriculum (as of December 2019)
- AIA is candidate school for the IB PYP, is seeking authorization as an IB World School, and is a proposed Cambridge IGCSE Curriculum School. AIA also plans to offer A-Levels, IBMYP, and IB Diploma Program as it expands to higher year groups.
12 October 2019 review
- Also called Ambassador School Al Khail Gate branch? KHDA directory: location Al Quoz 2, no tel, no fax, email firstname.lastname@example.org, website www.aiadubai.com, curriculum UK/IB, establishment date 08 Sep 2019.
- No PO Box or fax number?
16 March 2019 review
- Ambassador International Academy, Al Quoz, opening September 2019, curriculum IB and IGCSE, also British curriculum? Website www.aiadubai.com, fees AED 28,400 to 36,600 (Pre-KG to Grade 4) (?). Related to or is same as Al Khail Gate Ambassador school?
- Ambassador School Al Khail Gate. Information from Ambassador KG says "New Campus Coming up in Al Khail Gate in 2018. ICSE Curriculum - Pre KG to Grade 12". Sharjah Ambassador School says "Ambassador School launched its Sharjah campus in 2016, and is geared up to launch Ambassador School Al Khail campus by the end of 2018."
- Jobs seen advertised online in March 2019 for Ambassador School Dubai and Sharjah (Al Khail not specified), with (unconfirmed) salary range AED 5,000-9,000, however the advertisement image appears on peculiar sounding website domains related to vegetables or vegetarians and nature friendly products. Jobs advertised on Ambassador School's own websites do not state salaries.
26 April 2017 review
- Offset Construction announced they were awarded a contract for a "Proposed Co-Ed School (G+3+Service Block) on Plot No. 365-3942 at Al Quoz Industrial Second - Dubai, UAE from Ambassador Global Investment Ltd." Project information from Offset says "Completion date: 30/04/2018".
