09 October 2008 review
  • There is also a Dubai International School Al Quoz (or Nad Al Sheba) branch.
  • DIS is unrelated to Dubai International Academy, Dubai National School, or Emirates International School.
  • Domain name updated (www.dischool.com forwards to new domain).
  • Fees updated (was AED 9,460-14,850 per year for 2006-2007). KHDA information says DIS applied for 20% increase for 2008-2009 but was ineligible since they had already increased fees by 16% for 2007-2008.
  • Additional contact details for DIS are Administration tel +971-4-2823524, Kindergarten tel +971-4-2823472, Clinic tel +971-4-2826610. Additional email addresses dischool@emirates.net.ae, dischool@eim.ae, info@dischool.com.
  • Domain www.dischool.com forwards to www.dis.sch.ae, and www.disschool.com is spam.
  • KHDA also says that the DIS Al Quoz branch offers International Baccalaureate (IB), but DIS not found on the IBO website list of schools for the UAE.
