As a teacher, what are the major plus points for working here?
Dubai American Academy is really doing great job in terms of education and developing intellectual level of their students. Everything from environment to teachers, from subject classes to hobby classes, from meals to sports is designed in such a way which encourages students to do something better and good. The main aim of this academy is to teach students that to taste success only education is not everything, you should be a all rounder and an active person. I was a teacher there for a long time and the experience of being a part of that school is commendable.
I certify that this review is my own opinion based on my personal experience of this school. I understand that International Schools Advisor may remove this review if it is found to be in breach of the site's Terms & Conditions.
