    MY two sons and a niece are studying in ADIS, and i feel it is best. The teaching + caring are too good.

    @JumpingJax

    1. What will be the KG school timing in ADIS for this academic year starting from April ?
    2. Will they have only 1 shift starting from this year ?
    3. How frequently do they conduct open house (is it monthly) ?
    4. If you are in city, currently what is the bus pick up time in the morning and drop off time in the afternoon ?
    5. Do they have any extra curricular (like field trip, arts&craft, library etc.,) other than the academics ?
    6. Is email communication to teacher is possible ?
    7. Do you get newsletters and updates from the school via email ?
    8. Do the child get homework everyday ? If yes, then is it light or heavy homework ?

    Sorry for asking too many questions ... But i want to consolidate all my questions in one go ... Awaiting answers please ...

    hi fmi,

    unfortunately, i cant answer all ur questions yet as i am still waiting on some answers myself
    1. not sure what the timing as it has not been made clear yet if there is a second shift. we were told last year that the second shift is for 2012-2013 only as it was assumed another branch would open in mussafah but no news on that
    2. as mentioned, not sure if there is a second shift next year. for kg it was fine as kg timings is only 4 hours but for 1st standard and above they need more time in school and this year was unfair to 1st standard i feel as they only had 4 hours a day. several parents of 1st standard have mentioned to me that they feel the standard went down with a shortened school day.
    3. open house is every 2-3 months...for kg it is enough as i have a good idea of her daily activities
    4. i drop my child in the mornings but i believe in the city the bus comes as early as 6:10 am....afternoon she is back by bus by 12 pm.
    5. there is arts and crafts, annual day, activities and a few fieldtrips but not enough in my opinion. i would have loved a few more events/dances/etc...
    6. my child's teacher was nice enough to provide her number, so if i have any problem, i can call her
    7. we do get circulars for any notices in my child's bag as well as online. also there is a website that i can check for a list of all classwork and homework for the week.
    8. usually there is homework - a little math and english every day - just as a review of what they did in class..not too heavy

    hope this helps...

    ADIS the school is good when compared to the present schools.
    Advantages:
    Good exposure i meant extracurricular activities
    Good management
    Is an established school
    Fees is the lowest in AbuDhabi(this is the best thing about school,they offer so much compared to other schools and the fees is also low and thats the reason theres always a big rush yo ADIS)
    Teachers get highest salary and thats why teacher stay here for long unlike other schools where teachers leave the school in the middle of the term
    Mixed crowd

    Disadvantages
    In higher classes the studies are poor but if the tuition teacher is good then you dont have to bother about that.i heard the girls section is lagging
    There are so many kids in one class that sometimes teachers dont recognise kids of their own class
    Because the number of kids are increasing teachers cant really give attention to all kids (this problem is more in the higher classes)
    Lottery system exists but still many people get their kids in through contacts and thats just not fair

    There are 20new schools coming up in abudhabi. Thats like a never before seen thing.Because till now in abudhabi the schools were just average and none came upto the expectations of parents.But in another few yrs the scenario will be completely different.
