  • New High School Principal at EIS Meadows is Mr Leonard Murphy (previously was principal at Al Ain Juniors School), started at EIS August 2013. Previous HS Principal was David Hicks - he has moved to EIS Jumeirah as Secondary School principal.
  • Junior School or Primary School Principal is Ms Carmel Platt.
29 September 2010
  • The saga of the fired EIS principal is still going on with the Dubai education authority apparently getting involved. According to a Gulf News report, Mohammad Darwish, Chief of the RCC department at the KHDA, said "KHDA has sent a compliance team from the Regulations and Compliance Commission [RCC] to the school and it will report back."
  • GN also reported feedback from one parent who said "They have sacked a total of five principals last year. Nearly 50 teachers were laid off last term and till today they have not got replacements for many teachers. There are no students for certain subjects, the textbooks are not in place, the timetable is not sorted out. The school is in a mess. We want the authorities to do something about it." The GN said that the school did not respond to their request for comment.
23 September 2010
  • A new principal at EIS Meadows, Orlando Pola-Rivera (previously at the Berlin International School?), was apparently fired a week after starting in his new job.
  • Gulf News reported that parents told them Pola-Rivera was shown the door for reverting an executive order to shuffle students across all classes within four days after the school opened for the new academic year.
  • In the same report, the GN said that about 200 parents met at the school to talk to the Executive Principal of EIS, Jason Kirwin, wanting to know why Mr Pola-Rivera was sacked, and threatening to take their children out of the school if he was not reinstated.
  • The Executive Principal's office apparently made no comment about the issue when asked by the GN but an official statement might be issued.
  • Sounds like just another warm welcome from a Dubai school to an expat education professional. For more of the same, read about happy times for Abu Dhabi teachers.
16 April 2008 review
  • Emirates International School Meadows contact information updated. Previous details were PO Box 6446 (is for EIS Umm Suqeim, Jumeirah), fax +971-4-3629009.
  • Teacher salary information updated (previously was 5k-10k).
  • Primary and Junior School (JS) principal name added - Brian Marquand (HS principal) and Tim Richardson (JS).
  • Curriculum details: IPC (KG2 to Grade 6), EIS (Grades 7,8,9), IGCSE or GCSE (Grades 10,11) IB Diploma (Grades 12,13)
23 February 2006 review
  • EIS in the Meadows is a newer branch of EIS opened in 2005. Probably the better of the two to be a student at or work at although there wouldn't be a lot of difference.
  • Tel sometimes given as +971-4-3431111 is for Al Habtoor Group head office, not the school.
  • Fee information for 2007-2008 for Emirates International School Jumeirah, assumed to be the same for EIS Meadows, except that EIS Jumeirah starts at KG2 not KG1? Fees for 2006-2007 were AED 21,000-44,500.
  • Original domain name, www.eischool.com, has expired (is now spam) and is not related to Emirates International School anymore, www.eisschool.com is not an EIS website either. New website at www.eischools.ae.
  • Head's name also seen as Mr Robert Bennett but EIS website says Mr Marquand was High School principal since opening. Primary School principal is Mr Tim Richardson.

General comments - might not apply to Emirates International School Meadows
