Sharjah International Private School (SIS, SIPS) tuition fee schedule and information
Not to be confused with the Sharjah International American School (SAIS) or the Sharjah British International School (SBIS), both different and unrelated schools. SIS British Section, which follows the IGCSE curriculum, might also be referred to as Sharjah International British School (SIBS) - same contact details seen for both school names in various directory listings. School name is SIPS or SIS according to the Sharjah Education Zone school directory.
- Fees information not supplied. Enrolment or admission fee AED 500 (non-refundable).
- Date established not confirmed. Head's name also given as Ms Susan Abdul Fattah.
- SIPS operates two sections. A British school following the UK curriculum (about 20% Emirati students), and an Arab school following the UAE MOE curriculum (about 50% Emirati students), figures for 2014.
- [Check] Classes from KG to Grade 11, not Grade 12? British section exams for IGCSE and AS-Levels, not A-Levels.
- Location Al Gharayen, Al Qurayn 5 (Al Qarain) near Al Orouba Boys School, off the Dhaid Road at Sharjah Airport intersection? Location also given as Al Fayha (or Al Fayah) area at Koran Roundabout (LS, GM)? No information provided by school about relocating or opening a second campus (but school is not good at providing information in general anyway).

02 April 2009 review
- Sharjah International Private School (SIS) also called Sharjah International School (SIS) or Sharjah International Pvt Sch?
- There were reports at the end of March 2009 that
Shahda Abdul Rauf, a student at SIS, died after being hit by a car after she got off the school bus near her home. The driver of the car was arrested by Sharjah Police.
- An Xpress report 22 September 2008 said that SIS opened 3 weeks late for academic year 2008-2009 due to a power shortage.
- SIS location is (or was - has moved?) corner of Sheikh Khalid Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi St and Sheikh Sultan Bin Saqr Al Qassimi St?
- SIS was mentioned in January 2006 in a list of villa schools that were warned about being closed down? Or was that a different SIS?
- Telephone +971-6-5676430 and PO Box
3695 also seen for SIS but the PO Box is for the Sharjah Filipino School.
