School name confusion in Al Ain
Al Ain American Schools
- American School of Al Ain - or Al Ain American School (AAAS). Offers a US curriculum but is not really American in culture and atmosphere in the way which most Americans would generally expect. Is more accurate to think of it as an Emirati school offering instruction in English with a mixture of US and UAE curriculums. Similar comments might apply to the American Nursery of Al Ain (is part of AAAS).
Al Ain International Private Schools
- Al Ain International Primary School - an Aldar Properties school. Also called Al Ain International School, but not the International Private School in Al Ain, which is a different school. The Aldar school has an international curriculum and is popular with expats.
- International Private School of Al Ain - school name is just International Private School (IPS), but there are several other International Private Schools in Al Ain, and other places around the world. IPS is not the same as the Al Ain International (Primary) School. IPS has a UAE Ministry of Education (MOE) and Arabic curriculum, mostly taught in English, and is popular with Emirati families.
- Universal Private School Al Ain
Emirates National Private Schools
- Emirates National School (ENS) Al Ain campus - part of the ENS Group of schools based in Abu Dhabi emirate, offers International Baccalaureate (IB) to mostly Emirati students. Parents and students wanting a more western or international style education and atmosphere are likely to find other schools more appealing.
- Emirates Private School (EPS) Al Ain campus - one of the Abu Dhabi EPS schools also, different from the ENS Group of schools. Offers a UK, US, or UAE MOE curriculum, and is popular with Emirati families. Families wanting a more western style education and atmosphere are likely to find other schools more satisfactory.
Al Ain Indian Schools
- GEMS Our Own English High School Al Ain (GEMSOOEHS Al Ain or OOEHSAA) - is an Indian school, not an English (or British) school, and is grades K-12, not a high school. Located next door to the Indian School of Al Ain.
- Indian Model School of Al Ain - or New Indian Model School of Al Ain (NIMS) or Model Indian School in Al Ain (different names for the same school).
- Al Ain Indian Private School - or Indian School of Al Ain - not the same as the New Model Indian School in Al Ain.
