  • Also referred to as the "English Medium Private School", "The English Medium School" or "The English Medium School (Pvt)".
  • Another fax number seen +971-4-3345644 - may not be correct (first 3 digits look wrong).
  • Email dubaiems@emirates.net.ae should also work.
  • Principal's name Phillip Horrobin also seen.
  • Difficult to find website for the Dubai English Medium School (EMS, EMSD, DEMS). Website might be at www.englishmediumschool.com but seems to be unavailable.
