Real and fake teaching vacancies and other jobs at Apple International School
- AIS website home > Connect > Join Us, redirects to LEAMS Education website careers section (www.leamseducation.com/career/) with list of current vacancies and online application, but check you are on the secure https version before submitting any information, there is also a http not secure version available.
- Official AIS website domain is www.apple.sch.ae (at present, or just apple.sch.ae if the www version doesn't load). There is a copy (or something similar) at www.apple-sch.com which is referred to in fake job offers. The website is blocked in the UAE but that doesn't help overseas job applicants. Do not apply to or accept any job offers without confirming that they are real. Contact AIS in Dubai directly to check any online job advertisements. There are many that look real but are not. Emails that do not belong to AIS include email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or anything else @apple-sch.com.
- If you are asked for any money for example to pay for visa fees or any other sort of fee, do not send any money and stop all communication. A real school in the UAE should never ask for money to pay for visa fees.

07 November 2019 information update
[Check] AIS is split into two campuses now, primary and secondary, or there are two branches of AIS? Campus 1 has 2,300 students, campus 2 has 400 students.
- Main website is back to www.apple.sch.ae (or just apple.sch.ae), website apple.iqraeducation.net no longer available.
- Email address updated to email@example.com, previously firstname.lastname@example.org.
- FB page at www.facebook.com/appleschooldubai/. Says postal address is PO Box 262, Dubai, which is incorrect according to AIS, the UAE Yellow Pages, and the KHDA. Unless AIS has merged or something with the International Academic School (was also PO Box 262).
- AIS has a new campus but they seem to be confused about where it is. They say "We are proud to introduce our new purpose-built campus ... making us one of the Best British Schools in Sharjah." But then says the new campus location is "... near Sheikh Rashid Colony, Al Qusais", which is still in Dubai.
- AIS opened a second new campus location in Al Qusais. KHDA directory 5529 (Oct 2019): Establishment date 01 Sep 2019, curriculum UK, tel (mobile) +971-55-7874962, no fax, location Al Qusais, email email@example.com, website apple.sch.ae.
06 November 2014 review

09 November 2012 review
- Website no longer at domain www.appleschooldubai.com (is now spam). New domain is www.apple-schooldubai.com.
11 June 2010 review
- Apple International School was given an "unsatisfactory" rating in the 2009-2010 KHDA/DSIB school inspections which meant they were expected to follow some recommendations to improve. A follow-up inspection in May 2010, and report, said AIS had improved. The follow-up report said Inspectors judged that Apple International School had satisfactorily addressed the recommendations made by DSIB at the previous inspection. Inspectors will inspect the school as part of the regular school inspection cycle during the coming academic year.
- Annual tuition fees for 2010-2011 appear to be unchanged based on fees information on AIS website checked in June 2010. Fees document is dated from October 2009? Registration and admission fees seem to have increased by AED 100 each.
