Our students are responsive and respectful, but lively at the same time, as we equip them with the skills to make a positive contribution to their society as adults.  Abu Dhabi is an exciting place to work, a vibrant city with lots going on and very welcoming to expatriates who are respectful of local culture and social norms.  It is rapidly establishing itself as the cultural (as well as the actual) capital of the UAE.  If you want an ‘authentic’ and fulfilling expat experience, then Ajyal International School Private School is a rewarding place to work at.
