Academia Management Solutions International (AMSI) is a private education solutions and consultancy provider with over 35 years’ experience across all aspects of K-12 education. AMSI, and its schools, have been dedicated to transforming the lives of our students and raising the standards of education within its community for over 30 years.
Today, AMSI manages a number of regional schools providing high quality education to students from over 60 diverse nationalities. Students in AMSI schools benefit from the specialized expertise of AMSI’s network of education professionals, specialists and staff, guided by a dynamic advisory panel, which combines a host of professional backgrounds.
Founded in 1979 and managed by AMSI, Al Mawakeb School (Dubai) provides a comprehensive university preparatory education to a student body of over 5,500 (across both campuses: Al Garhoud and Al Barsha).
In May 2010, Al Mawakeb School earned accreditation from AdvancED, an American education community that serves over 27,000 private and public schools in the US and 69 countries worldwide. Although our medium of instruction is English, we follow a unique trilingual education program in English, French, and Arabic, which enables our graduates to pursue higher education worldwide. The students begin studying the English, French, and Arabic languages as of Kindergarten. Students of Grade 10, 11, 12 follow an academic US-style curriculum (equivalent to a US Grade 12 Diploma). There is one common curriculum without streams. Subjects are compulsory. Non-Muslim students are exempt from Islamic Education. Upon completing twelve years of education, students receive a high school diploma recognized by the UAE Ministry of Education. Our high school diploma, in tandem with the educational preparation we designed, has enabled our graduates to attend universities all over the world.
The International School of Arts and Sciences (ISAS) is our third Dubai based AMSI managed school campus which is located in the Al Warqa area. At ISAS we implement a twelve-year American program based on a core curriculum that encourages students to recognize their potential in both the arts and sciences. At the high school level (grades 9-12), ISAS gives students the opportunity to further explore their curiosity with innovative elective courses while maintaining a rigorous and comprehensive core curriculum.
At AMSI, we invest in the personal and professional growth of our teachers and staff, and capitalize on their potential to deliver the best education for students. We are currently speciﬁcally seeking qualiﬁed teachers to become part of our educational team, employed at one of the above school campuses. As part of our current requirements we are seeking a suitably qualified English Teacher to work across the age groups from KG to Grade 12
