26 September 2012 review
  • Gulf News Express reported that Parents allege that The Philippine School is selling overpriced textbooks and notebooks. Giving examples of book charges being double what they cost in Manila, Philippines.
  • TPS principal, Jocelyn Sollano, was quoted in the report as saying "The availability of new textbooks on school opening is a top priority for us and we brought the required number to cover all our students by air. We’re just sharing the burden with the parents."
  • Managing Directress of TPS is Letty Maniaul (Leticia M. Maniaul).
10 May 2012 review
  • The Philippine School moved to a new building or campus in Rashidiya sometime in 2010? Date of move not supplied. New telephone number is +971-4-2844465? KHDA and UAE Yellow Pages information is still tel +971-4-2544886 (old number?). Not clear if fax number +971-4-2544887 still valid (old number, KHDA information).
  • Website domain www.thephilippineschool.com seen in some sources is spam. Correct website is www.thephilippineschooldubai.com. Another domain seen in other sources is www.thephilippineschool.org but nothing available when checked.
  • Presumably old email address info@thephilippineschool.com is no longer valid. Another email address is principalramos@rocketmail.com (KHDA information)?
