23 August 2007 review

- Head's name not confirmed for 2006-2007 (was Ms Agnes Shaw but she left?)

- See the Choueifat International School page for general comments on Choueifat schools (not Chouiefat).
General comments about SABIS network and Choueifat Schools are that they are quite intensive and academically rigorous - even elementary school students have regular exams. Teachers are expected to adhere strictly to the SABIS lesson plan structure and school policy is that they do not meet with parents. It's not everyone's cup of tea but students usually end up well prepared academically for further studies. And of course, lesson synchronisation across the Choueifat Schools means an easy transition if students move from one city to another - or even another country.
Teaching jobs at Choueifat Dubai
- Teachers in Dubai Choueifat School live on campus in shared accommodation mostly (married couples will get their own apartment) which is a more restrictive environment than living off-campus.
- Choueifat generally recruits younger newly qualified teachers (a cost-effective policy).
- Courses and levels taught do not always relate to the qualification of the teacher (e.g. secondary qualified teachers end up teaching young primary classes).
- A teaching qualification is not essential for obtaining employment in a Choueifat school (it's not clear how they get around UAE Ministry of Education requirements regarding teaching qualifications).
- A high proportion of teachers are recruited from Ireland (but the overall mix is international).
- Administrative workload is quite intense (marking) but lesson preparation is relatively light.
- Children of Choueifat teachers must attend Choueifat schools.
