Ambassador School, Dubai

Ambassador School, Dubai, known previously as Global Indian International School, Dubai, is a private K-12 school located in Bur Dubai. The school was established in April 2010, originally as one of 20 GIIS  (Global Indian International School) campuses around the world, located in seven different countries.

A dispute between local management company, Score Plus Education and Singapore’s Global Schools Foundation (GSF), which is responsible for the Global Indian International Schools (GIIS) brand worldwide, meant ties with the GSF brand ended in April 2013.

Despite the loss of brand, and a significant number of teachers, Ambassador has continued to grow. The school has just shy of 700 students post KG. The school is home to 300 pupils in the nursery.

Ambassador Kindergarten has a separate inspection and inspection report. It opened two years after the main school.

Middle school and senior school students follow the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) framework and syllabus.

As of 2014-2015 Ambassador School received the KHDA inspection rating of Acceptable – for the fourth year in a row. The report noted the positive atmosphere in the school, as well as good progress – and attainment – in key subjects such as mathematics, science and English.  Good leadership is also noted, along with enthusiastic staff and a strong relationship with parents.

Weakness of the school include Islamic Education and Arabic, and perhaps more worryingly, behaviour management skills of teachers in lower years.

Facilities at Ambassador include fully equipped classrooms with LCD projectors and computers, music, dance, yoga and tabla studios, an audio video presentation room, computer and science laboratories, a library with over 10,000 selections of books, an auditorium which seats up to 600 students and a cafeteria which serves fresh Indian vegetarian food daily. The school is also host to a number of other sporting facilities such as badminton courts, basketball courts, tennis courts, a soccer field, cricket field and table tennis areas.
