"Overall school performance 2011-2012 Unsatisfactory

How has the school progressed since the last inspection?

Dubai American Scientific School provided an unsatisfactory level of education to its students. The school failed to achieve its vision for 'all members of the learning community to work together to learn from and teach one another, in an environment of mutual respect and understanding'. The school had been without leadership for a period of three months prior to inspection. The appointment of the new Acting Principal had led to greater stability but her positive influence had yet to impact significantly on the school community. Students in Kindergarten and elementary showed acceptable personal and social development. The attitudes and behaviour of students in the middle and high school sections were unsatisfactory overall. A large minority of Emirati students in Grades 10 to 12 demonstrated very negative attitudes and behaviour which often placed them and others at risk. Attendance rates were very poor throughout the school with only 30 per cent of students in Grades 10 to 12 attending at any one time. The school's provision for ensuring the health and safety of students was unsatisfactory although a comprehensive audit of the school premises was carried out by an independent contractor during the inspection. On arrival at the school, the Acting Principal had had some success in addressing unsafe areas of immediate concern.
