Your child’s school years are one of the most important times of their life. Every minute counts and it is our job to ensure that when you drop your child off at school each morning, they have the best day possible. You need to know that you are leaving your child somewhere safe, where people care about them a great deal, where they can progress in every sense but most importantly, where they will be happy and ultimately thrive.
May I take this opportunity to welcome you to JAS; we believe, one of Dubai’s happiest and most successful schools. Opened in 1977 to provide education for the children of expatriate workers involved in the construction of the port, JAS has grown into the wonderful place it is today. Having moved in 2016 to the new Hessa Street site and a brand new, purpose built environment, JAS is connecting its rich and successful past to its promising and exciting future.
The basis for the education we provide at JAS is the understanding that achievement is without limit. It is important for us that we enable your child to continually progress and surpass expectation. Successful relationships are therefore something that we spend a great deal of time building and maintaining with your child, our staff and you the parent. We will guide, support and nurture your child from the moment they start with us as a curious and inquisitive three year old right through to when they are eighteen and complete their journey as happy, self-confident and successful adults.
Teachers typically stay a long time at JAS, providing experience, consistency and stability for our children, who are at the centre of everything we do. High academic achievement is carefully balanced with well-being and happiness. We take time to develop each child holistically with emphasis not only on their academic success but also on their involvement in music, sport and the arts. Equally, good manners and the respect we show each other are similarly important.
Putting children first and maintaining our JAS community and family atmosphere remain at the heart of what we do.
Welcome to our school.
