The innovative educational experience will be implemented in the current academic year in 10 schools
Authorities have announced the registration details of a new model of schooling that will be implemented in some public schools from the new academic year. The Emirates Schools Establishment (ESE) has detailed the 10 institutions where the ‘Ajyal (generation) Schools’ model will be available and other terms and conditions.
The Ajyal Schools model adopts more advanced learning outcomes that combine the national curricula with the international curricula. The national curricula will include the Arabic language, Islamic education, moral education and social studies, under the direct supervision of the Emirates Schools Establishment. In contrast, the international curricula will be responsible for subjects such as mathematics, science and others.
The new model will be applied to all students from grade one to four in 10 schools.
This will be expanded to cover 28 schools within three years. The government will bear students’ fees and all operating expenses.
Registration will begin at the end of next week. Students who completed next academic year's enrolment in schools that are now part of Ajyal Schools in April are not required to re-register.
Students who completed next academic year's registration in other public schools and wish to switch to an Ajyal School must register at the end of next week.
Admission of new students to Ajyal Schools will depend on the availability of seats. Private school students of Grades 1-4 will not be eligible to register.
