- SAIS is not related to the new Sharjah American school under construction by Evolvence Capital, or the Sharjah International School.
- Fees information for Dubai campus from KHDA website. Sharjah campus fees information not found. Possibly 16% fees increase for 2008-2009?
15 December 2006 review
- Alternative tel +971-6-5380001. Alternative email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- SAIS has US Commission on International Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA) accreditation.
- Dubai campus newly opened (2005?), principal Nadine Tarazi, no contact details on website.
- Caters more to Arab community wanting a US education than to western expatriate community.
