  • The GN, KT, TN newspapers all reported that EESS would be closing in March 2019 due to financial issues, and included a statement from Mohammad Darwish at the KHDA saying "The KHDA has approved the school management's request to discontinue educational services at Emirates English Speaking School from the next academic year."

12 April 2009 review
23 September 2008 review
  • Emirates English School (EESS) website says fees are AED 244-374 monthly, payable for 10 months per year (AED 2,440-3,740) but KHDA information is that fees were AED 2,700-4,100 per year for 2007-2008.
  • EESS fees increase of 16% was approved for 2008-2009, which might mean fees are AED 2830-4338 or AED 3132-4756 for 2008-2009.
