    Hi All,

    My son's just got admission into Choueifat (KG1) Airport Road, AUH. I want some feedback regarding the school. Specifically, I want to know:
    1. Is it Arab dominated? Would that have an impact on Indian kids? (positive or negative)
    2. KG1 school timings are 8 - 3 pm. What do they teach for so long??
    3. Bus service is not offered by the school. Are there any reliable services from Hamdan street?
    4. How is the curriculum compared to CBSE?
    5. Would it be practically possible to switch from SABIS to CBSE curriculum schools?
    6. Has anyone else got admission to KG1 for 2014-2015? Would like to get in touch...

    Thanks in advance!
    Chithra

    Hi Chaithra,

    First of all Congratulations for getting a place at Chouiefat.
    I have heard very positive comments about the school and it is one of the most sought after school in Abu Dhabi.I have few arab friends whose kids go there and they are very happy about the school.
    Yes,Arabs are the dominating nationality there,but I don't think your son should have aduustment problems at KG stage because of this.
    If you are not happy,you can always try in Indian curricul schools.
    As for now,you are lucky to get a place there as the school is in great demand especially for KG.

    My son WILL ALSO BE STARTING kg1 at Mayoor.

    Good Luck.

    Congrates Fathima for your son's admission, one of my friend's daughter also got the admission in Mayoor. Isn't it too far for the one who are staying in Abu Dhabi city? I think the bus will also come early as its far in Al Wathba and what about the admission procedure & fees?

    Hi Fathima,

    Thanks a lot for your response and positive feedback! Honestly, we were looking at an Indian school like Mayoor, but due to the new age requirement, our son wouldn't be eligible. Moreover, Choueifat is within city limits (we live in the city too). Anyway, we'll send him there for a couple of years and then maybe switch to an Indian school :)

    I've heard Mayoor is a very good school (in India). Good luck to your son.

    Cheers
    Chithra

    Hi Chaitra,
    Apologies for the delay in replying.
    The school will open for KG classes from Sep.I know its far but most of the CBSE schools are located outside Abu Dhabi city.Lets see how it goes once the school starts.
    I heard that Mayoor is accepting applications for KG.You can visit their website for online registration.Chouiefat is also a very strong school and the plus point is its in the city.But the only drawback is it is Arab dominating and long school hours.

    Hi Chithra

    Am looking for kg admission for my son. In choueifat the school they have started taking applications for the next year Kg admission. How's your experience with choueifat ? Is there any discrimination against Indian kids ? We are in the phase of shortlisting the schools, your reply will be very helpful .
