14 August 2009 review
- Emirates National School "in Abu Dhabi and Dubai" (check - there is no ENS in Dubai) will start after the end of Ramadan 2009 and the Eid Al Fitr holiday according to press releases. Start date will be Sunday 27 September 2009. ENS Al Ain was not mentioned, and TENS in Sharjah is not related to the other ENS schools. Is there an ENS in Dubai?
23 February 2007 review
- Emirates National School (ENS) Abu Dhabi has mixed reports from teachers, the poor comments seem to be directed at management rather than teachers or students.
- ENS AUH is a sister school to the newer ENS Al Ain.
- School says they are being considered for the IB Diploma program in Grades 11 and 12.
- Boys and girls are segregated in secondary school.
