International Private Schools in Al Ain

... in name rather than in education - Al Ain is not the global center of international private education despite the number of schools calling themselves international. Treat the word "international" as meaningless in a school's name in the UAE. There are many schools with an international ethos, student body, curriculum, teaching staff which are highly regarded (and usually expensive), but without the word "international" in the name. And there are other schools with the word "international" in the name which are anything but, in whatever way you look at them, and they are varying degrees of unappealing to anyone except for the particular nationality or curriculum they cater to - for example American, British, Emirati, French, German, Indian, Iranian, Lebanese, Philippines, etc. Some of the "international" schools in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain are:

  • Abu Dhabi International Private School (ADIPS) - in Abu Dhabi City, not Al Ain. School for Emiratis, Arab Muslim expats wanting US, UK, or IB education in English, not a western or international expat school.
  • Al Ain International School (AAIS) - different school from IPS Al Ain. Primary school, British curriculum for British expats. Not an international school.
  • Al Ain International Private School (AAIPS) - not a real school, just a different name for IPS-Al Ain.
  • Al Ansar International Private School (AAIPS). In Sharjah, not Al Ain. Is an Islamic school for Emiratis and Arab expats wanting UK curriculum. Not an international school.
  • Al Khalil International Private School (AKIPS). In Al Ain, not an international school. Private Islamic school offering UAE MOE curriculum for Emiratis and Arab expats.
  • Al Manhal International Private School (AMIPS) - in Abu Dhabi city, not Al Ain. Private Islamic school for Emiratis and Arab expats.
  • Al Ma'arifa International Private School (AMIPS) (Al Maarifa, Al Marifa). In Sharjah, not Al Ain. Private Islamic school for Emiratis and Arab Muslim expats with UAE MOE, US, and UK curriculum classes.
  • Al Mustaqbal International Private School (AMIPS)
  • Alia International Private School (AIPS)
  • Asian International Private School (AIPS) - in Abu Dhabi City, not Al Ain.
  • Baniyas International Private School (BIPS) (or Bani Yas - BYIPS) - in Abu Dhabi City, not Al Ain.
  • Beit Al Maqdes International Private School (BAMIPS) - in Mohamed Bin Zayed City, not Al Ain.
  • Crescent International Private School (CIPS) - in Khalifa City A, Abu Dhabi, not Al Ain.
  • Emirates Falcon International Private School (EFIPS)
  • Future International Private School (FIPS) - same as Al Mustaqbal IPS
