Russian schools in the UAE (Русские школы в Дубае, ОАЭ)
  • Есть ли русская школа в Абу-Даби? Нет. Is there a Russian school in Abu Dhabi? Nyet.
  • Русская школа в Дубаи (Дубае) - Russian School in Dubai, same as the Русская международная школа Дубая - Russian International School in Dubai.
  • Русская школа в Шардже ОАЭ (частная школа) - Russian Private School in Sharjah. Closed in September 2010?
Russian School in Dubai teaching jobs and vacancies (Русская школа в Дубае вакансии)
  • You probably need to be a native Russian language speaker to teach at the school, or at least fluent to bilingual.
  • For job applications, Russian language forums about Dubai and the UAE seem to be the best source for recent advertisements. Or send CV and letter directly to the school.
  • Pay scale and benefits package information not provided. Employment conditions seem to be UAE residents preferred or required, accommodation not provided (?), unclear if UAE residence visa provided (if not then employment restricted to husbands or wives sponsored by their spouses already living in the UAE).
Russian Language School in Dubai
  • The Russian International School provides a Russian education system curriculum for KG-Grade 12 students, it does not offer lessons for those who want learn how to speak the Russian language (at least not as far as we know).
  • Try the St Petersburg State University of Engineering and Economics (Russian University) in Dubai if you want language lessons. They offer beginner to advanced level courses.
  • Eton Institute in Knowledge Village is also possible but they sound a bit disorganised for languages other than the most popular ones (Arabic, English, French, Italian, Spanish).
  • Berlitz Institute in Jumeirah might offer Russian speaking courses but they seem to have difficulty finding or keeping Russian language teachers.
20 September 2011 review (обзор)
  • Russian School of Dubai officially opened or changed name to Russian International School, or both, on 05 September 2011? Opening ceremony held on that day? School was operating in shared premises with another school before that (European School of Dubai?) according to Russian news release? Dubai Russian School is the only Russian school in the UAE according to the story. Information not confirmed.
05 June 2010 review (обзор)
  • Dubai Russian Private School has moved from Hamriya (Hamria, Hamriyah, Al Wuhaidah), Villa no 21 to Muhaisnah 4 (Al Muheysna, Al Muheysnah) sometime between 2009-2010?
  • KHDA report from May 2010 says The school follows the National Russian curriculum. The school relocated to a larger, more suitable accommodation, which had an information and communication technology (ICT) laboratory, sports room, sports and playgrounds, swimming pool, music room, and school library. The science facilities were not established yet.
  • New telephone numbers are +971-4-2641515, +971-4-2643727, +971-4-2641866.
  • Old contact details are (presumably no longer valid) PO Box 88679, Dubai, UAE. Phone +971-4-2689710, fax +971-4-2689708.
  • Postal address is PO Box 88679, Dubai, UAE according to the Dubai Yellow Pages, but also PO Box 15098 according to another Dubai Yellow Pages listing (presumably old information since the same entry has the old phone numbers +971-4-2689708, +971-4-2689705).
  • PO Box 15098, Dubai, UAE is also postal address for the Darmal Group Real Estate Property Broker in Dubai. Unknown if that is an error, coincidence, or there is a connection between Darmal Group and the Dubai Russian School.
  • Dubai Russian School website at www.russianschool.net not available? Email address dubai@russianschool.net might not be valid either then. Website domain www.russianschool.com is for the Russian School of Mathematics in California, Kentucky, Massachusetts in the USA, and unrelated to the Russian School in Dubai.
  • Some information available at www.emirat.ru/education/russian_school_dubai.shtml.
