23 April 2010
  • A Gulf News report 20 April 2010 with the headline Staff member accused of brutally assaulting pupil in Fujairah school said that a student at the Fujairah Islamic Academic High School or the Fujairah Islamic Academic School was allegedly beaten by an administrative staff member for taking a football without permission, on 31 March 2010 according to the mother of the boy.
  • An unnamed official at the Fujairah Education Zone was quoted as saying "The legal affairs department has finished the investigation and we will soon come out with a decision. We follow the code of conduct set by the ministry of education in dealing with such incidents,"
  • The Gulf News also had the other side of the story from the principal of the school, Yousuf Abdul Bari (or Yusuf Abdul Bari?) who apparently thought hitting the student was an acceptable punishment, reportedly saying "He [the staff member] did not kill the boy or anything. He did not break his bones. The parents of the student are trying to tarnish the image of the school."
  • A follow up report in the GN on 23 April 2010 quoted Sulaiman Ali Al Zhayond, head of the legal department in the Fujairah Education Zone, as saying "After investigations, we have suspended the man for two weeks and his salary is deducted for five days," referring to the teacher complained about, and that Fujairah police is handling the case as the victim's family has registered a case against the staff member.
26 August 2008
  • Fujairah Islamic Scientific Academy (FISA) not usually referred to as "Fujairah Islamic Science Academy".
  • FISA offers a UAE curriculum with instruction in Arabic, and instruction in English also.
  • FISA moved to new premises in August 2003?
  • Other telephone numbers seen in the UAE yellow pages are +971-9-2229483 or +971-9-2226145.
  • Grade levels not confirmed.
  • Ministry of Education lists it as "Fujairah Academy" but note there is also another Fujairah private school (Fujairah Private Academy - FPA), which is not related to FISA. Western students, or those who want a western style curriculum in English are likely to find FPA more suited to them than FISA.
