29 October 2013 review
  • Most students are expat Arab nationalities, and Muslim, with about 50% from Syria and Jordan.
  • Principal since September 2012 is Mohammed Saad. Previous head was Amna Jaber Al Shamsi?
  • Location map not confirmed - ADEC information puts school in different building at approximately the same location as the Al Dana School or next to it. ADEC report says "The school opened in September 2011 in the former Al Dana school buildings."
  • Fax number supplied as +971-2-6425117 (same as tel number) but ADEC information is +971-2-6412247 and +971-2-4422064?
  • Class levels offered are KG to Grade 11, not Grade 12 according to ADEC inspection report? But ADEC school information says KG to Grade 12?
30 June 2011
  • Polaris Private Academy or School (PPA, PPS?) is a new school in Abu Dhabi opening September 2011 to accept students from a couple of closed down villa schools - Badr Al Kubra School and Baraem Al Aqsa School.
  • School name not confirmed. School operator is Polaris Education Consultants or Polaris Educational Consultancy in Abu Dhabi. News reports in the UAE at end of June 2011 said some of the villa schools would relocate to the Al Dana School Abu Dhabi building which might be where the new Polaris school is being established?
  • Curriculum is UAE Ministry of Education?
  • Website might be www.polarisprivateacademy.com?
