Best schools in Ajman
We'd hesitate to say any school in Ajman is excellent, or even very good. But school ratings are always a subjective issue, and if you don't want to consider a school in Dubai or Sharjah, then start with these ones. As always when choosing a school, it is vital that you actually visit the place to get your own first-hand impression which is worth far more than our opinion, the school's or anyone else's opinion.
Best American school
- [Arab-US] Ajman Modern Private School (Ajman Modern School) - Arab-US curriculum. AMS is an Islamic school which means culturally it will be different from western American schools, and might not appeal to non-Muslim families.
- [US] Omadaa (Deans) International School - American curriculum, if you don't want or can't afford the expensive Ajman Academy (an IB school), consider DIS as a second choice, but go and visit it first before enrolling your children.
Best British school
- [UK] The British International School in Ajman (BISA) - one of only two UK curriculum schools in Ajman, both opened in September 2014. New schools in the UAE are generally disorganised for the first year or two. We suggest BISA based only on them being more organised with providing information so far than the other one, The Bloomington Academy (TBA). Also, TBA is operated by The Lazar Group who run other schools in Ajman but don't provide much in the way of useful information, or answer email enquiries, so we assume it will be similar with TBA.
Best international school
- [IB] Ajman Academy (or Ajman International Academy) - IB curriculum, consider it if you can afford the very high fees for a school in Ajman - higher than many of the schools in Dubai. Based on the low average ratings given, many people seem to think it's overpriced for what you get.
Best Arab school
- Insufficient information to give a favorable opinion on any of them. They are all consistently poor at providing updated information. Possibly try the Ajman Modern School, an American and UAE MOE curriculum Islamic school.
Best Indian schools
- Al Ameer English School - seems to be rated about average by most people, which makes it better than most schools in Ajman (yes we know that doesn't entirely make sense).
- Habitat School - new school in 2014 so unknown, but if the marketing is to be believed, it might be one of the better Indian curriculum schools in Ajman, although as it's run by the same owners as the International Indian School, that puts us off a bit.
- Indian School of Ajman (or Ajman Indian School) - sort of here by default because it's a popular choice, not the best one.
- International Indian School of Ajman - a reluctant addition to the list, included to give one more option if the other two (not counting Habitat) don't have places or are not what you're looking for.
Best Pakistan curriculum school in Ajman
- There are only two Pakistani schools in Ajman (as of 2019): Pakistani School Ajman (1979) and Omar Bin Al Khattab School (1981).
- Also consider the new (in 2019) Pamir Private School in Sharjah, near the border with Ajman.

Schools in Sharjah near Ajman
- Residents of community districts in Ajman near the border with Sharjah might find some schools in Sharjah to be closer or more convenient than schools in Ajman. For example the Al Azra (Al Ezra) schools zone is close to the border with Ajman.
- The same principle doesn't really apply to schools in Umm Al Quwain (UAQ), which is north of Ajman, mostly because schools in UAQ are further from Ajman, and also because there aren't any very good schools in UAQ either. Note that Ajman and UAQ don't share a border - the district of Al Hamriya, belonging to Sharjah emirate, separates them.
