CAN U TELL THE FEE STRUCTURE AND THE STANDARDS AS WE HWV TO MOV TO ABUDHABI
most of the people commented seem to be worried about the school fee; that seems to be the main reason behind the complaints. why not going to other schools with low fee structure? Also, most of the parents put the blame on the teachers without taking any responsibility for their children who don't even teach them basic manners at home. The teachers in most of the schools have the same qualifications. Comments should be based on facts..About AC, I've seen this happening in other schools too.When it is not working, they call the mechanic, parents there don't think of going to the ministry for it!!
99% comments here can't be trusted. They seem to be from the same people who have some personal dislike against the management to bring down the school's popularity for some obvious reasons. The comments are definitely not from reliable sources; they seems to spring out of pure jealousy. What a pity..
hafsa syed today teacher wrote anything plz tell
Have to stop efia forever . The principal and vice principal is bad. they will not pick the right teachers with knowledge and good behavior .
actually i do agree that all of u r right. but students should also cooperate and participate.whenever there is a new activity or programme in efia or any other schools students just back out. and then they comment on such sites saying that they dont do anything . if u want something new go and request the principle only then will the school improve. so instead of commenting ur opinion online go and speak it out in a nice manner to the school.
efia school is improving
new principal and v.p is good.

y dont u go for other skuls rather than complaining abt this skul. we want to boast all tat our kids are studying in EFIA one f the best skul and we pay this much for our kids to get education. bcos of ppl like us they r increasin the fees. i think so. regarding the openings of new skuls the existing skuls in auh dont have a gud standard of education. lack of trained teachers, lack of extra curricular activities, lack of teacher- student coordination etc etc etc. am very much depressed of my sons education. will the ADEC put an eye over the indian sckuls and make them improve the standards and help middle class ppl like us.
I heared that in EFIA some class room a/c is not working properly. Some students have headache after coming from school due to heat and they are sweating. only option is that all parents should complain to management
EFIA teaching is o.k. arabic teaching is best.
now a days the main problem is air condition is not working properly. we complained too many times. i want to complain to ministry. how to do i don't know. if anybody knows please tell.
Yes ofcourse, new four cbse school opening next year will be little comfort for the parents, especially in this situation. Thanks for Mr. yousuf Ali & Mr. Shetty

hi...any body know the fees for std.1 in 2009 - 2010 year.
My son study in std.1 and I all ready paid 4 month Installment 625x4 =2500.so next installment they will reduse the fees? If any idea please post for other parents information..
Increased school fees paid in advance to the Emirates Future International Academy will be adjusted in the next payment term following an instruction from the ADEC to roll back the hike.
Parents who have already paid more than the required amount to the Emirates Future International Academy in Mussafah will have the fees adjusted in the next instalment.
“We are charging now based on 2009-10 fees. The charges for the first instalment will be adjusted in the second instalment,” Munira Abu Bana, principal of Emirates Future, told Khaleej Times.
“We have already informed the parents about the adjustment,” said Bana, adding that most of those who complained previously have already “calmed down”.
Paul Andrews, manager of private schools at Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC), has confirmed the council’s instruction.
“They should charge no more than the same fee at the beginning of the 2009-2010 school year pending an investigation by ADEC,” he stated.
Parents complained earlier to the authorities on the exorbitant fees they claimed were being charged by the school for the new term,?as well as, other issues like quality?and security.
Bhagvan Das Gola said two of his children were previously enrolled at the Emirates Future, but he has decided to send them back to India with?his wife as he cannot afford the new?fee structure.
“Last year, I paid around Dh6,000 (per annum) for my daughter in Grade 10, now they’ve raised it to Dh25,000 for Grade 11,” he said.
Bana denied this. “We started Grade 11 last September and we haven’t got an approval from the Abu Dhabi Education Zone (ADEZ) for Grade 11 fees, so we are currently charging the same as Grade 10,” she said.
According to the school’s new fee structure (2010-2011), Grade 10 tuition fee costs Dh8,750 per year, but with the rollback (2009-2010), the school currently charges Dh6,250.?The ADEZ-approved fee for Grade 10?is Dh13,000.
“Our fee structure was very low, lower than the ADEZ-approved fees... (and) we are only gradually increasing,” insisted Bana.
Children’s security was also an issue raised by one of the parents. “Safekeeping of our children is being charged,” complained Karamathullah Mohammed, who asked his daughters to wait for him outside the?school premises after classes to avoid the supervision fee.
He was referring to a circular issued in September by Bana to parents stating that “supervision for after-school hours has been arranged with a minimal fee of Dh100/hour, per month per child.”
Bana claimed that this has not been enforced. She said the circular was issued primarily because parents need to realise that some of the staff have to be paid overtime for looking after children when they have to wait till 4- 4.30pm for their parents to pick them up when classes end at 2pm.
Another parent, Uthaman Narayanan, claimed he was charged a fine of Dh5 for every day when he delayed payment of his son’s school fee for five days.
“Not to my knowledge. No one’s collecting any money for the delay,” denied the principal.
My son also studies in this school. Even without considering the increased fees, the fee charged by this school is much higher compared to other schools in Mussafah/Abu Dhabi teaching the same syllabus and of comparable quality. It is good that ADEC has intervened to reduce the fees to previous levels. Even if it is considered as a business establishment, this amount of price increase is unethical.- Achap, Abu Dhabi
Any idea about ADEC investigation against EFIA.
That's absolutely correct. Let's closely watch what's the academic year going....
Dont hesitate to compalint in the ministry of education if anything goes wrong.
In Model School, children does not speak malyalam or urdu. Its a very good and dedicated school. I admitted my child in the mid term of last year and he learnt fluent and very good grammatically correct english just in few months of grade one. Teaching methods are excellent in Model School. I think people should not guage the standard of school with the barometer of fee charged. This year I put my another child in EFIA in 7th grade, lets see how he progresses. Teachers will always be dedicated in any school, but here the problem i observed is with the management. Lets hope that ultimately students does not suffer. We all always wish to have the best thing for our kids, but inspite of paying heavy fees, if we get poor education in return, then a yelling man cannot be callled as a mad man.........
We need more not for profit schools. EFIA is a business like Hotels,supermarket etc...
School should be different.Dont think if EFIA closes CBSE everything will end.
If EFIA are close CBSE,nothing worried.Next year will be open 4new cbse school in Abu Dhabi. EMKE group(lulu supermarket) and Shetty and Dubai Indian school Branch these are allready announced for next year with low fees.All the parents are haapy with this news..personaly I met by chance Mr.Yousef Ali on last week,I ask him about the news,he saaid we are hard work for this to success on 2011 - 2012 academic year....Thaks yousef alika for your contribution to the Indian Community.God will give you more and more....
i too agree
i do agree that fee is slightly high but my children are very happy when they return home nad they have impreved a lot in spoken english. Teachers are very dedicated. why take curse of the dear teachers. If this school also close like SHERWOOD then where will the parents gooooooooooo? it is very simple those who are not comfortable should have gone to low fee schools like model where children speak malayalam or urdu. let the affordable develop. i heard they are going to close cbse. hope it is not true.

Anybody know the timing of the bus pick and Drop the child to EFIA school from Abu Dhabi? in Hamdan Street
EFIA school , Hindi started from which class ?
In some schools hindi starts from UKG, but in Model School Hindi starts from 2nd Grade.
If anybody know that Hindi language starting from which class in U A E(cbse Indian syllebus)
Anybody know that EFIA decrease the fees?
If they are diong the same , we can complain to the presidential court...don't worry ya man.we will know how to game against the fellow Buisiness man.
They have added the LAB FEE and ACTIVITY fee (of 2009) into this years Tution fee.
Tution fees of 2009 + LAB FEE (2009) + ACTIVITY fee (2009) = The TUTION FEE for 2010.
The total tution fees divided for ten months. This is their fee structure for this year.
Their claim that no LAB fees and ACTIVITY fees charged as reported in Gulf News is technically correct. BUT in reality they are still collecting this in another mode. Technically there is an increase in Tution FEE as against the ADEC instructions.
I paid allready 4month fees for my child in 1st grade as 625 per month. I knew that ADEC told them to reduce the fees like 2009 level so the remaining balance will refund for parents?
As i know that ,they are still charging the same fees...?
If anybody know that EFIA reduce the fees? if you know please post here.
As Gulf News reported last week ADEC instructed Emirates Future International Academy to hold fees at 2009 levels to reduce the financial pressure on parents
LOT OF TC AND LOT OF ADMISSION IN THIS SCHOOL.SO SCHOOL HAVE MONEY.BUT WE HAVE NO MONEY TO GIVE MORE.2 CHILDREN 2200 DHS PER MONTH WE ARE GIVING.BUS FEES INCLUDE.WITHIN ONE MONTH WE CANNOT GET NEW SCHOOL AND NEW HOUSE.SO WE CANNOT GO.SO PLS REDUCE THE FEES .UNLESS ADEC WILL TAKE ACTION AGAINST U.ITS GOOD FOR SCHOOL AND US.NOW VERY BAD IMPRESSION ABOUT THE SCHOOL.WE HOPE FEES WILL REDUCE.KG 1 LAST YEAR FEES WAS 500DHS PER MONTH.THIS YEAR 675.
anybody knows what was the fees for kG 1 last year ? for this year I paidAED 675 per month.
As the action is taken against the fee hike, so ADEC can also do something for new schools, as the demand for new school much more than these problems. Education is the basic facility provided by any country. Here parents have no choice to see the distance or quality or fee. The only choice left for parents, is to either compromise with whatever is available or send their families/children back to the home country and stay bachelor. I hope ADEC will surely consider this serious matter and give permission to start new schools with affordable fee structure.
The school licence to be granted to non profit organisations with vision of providing quality education. But unfortunately EFIA belongs to business magnates having supermarkets, hotels, construction companies etc. How we can expect quality education from them?
Thanks for ADEC....and allso we need to complaint about Al Noor School.
Thanks for ADEC....and thanks for all parants for your great job.
Thanks for ADEC....we can always expect justifiable decision from the authorities...
EFIA transportations are very bad ...
EFIA not a good school,but we(Indian) have no other choice..they are charging fees very high...faith will accept.
last year, once their supervsior told to a few parents, who complained about the transport of their children, that he can take their children to any other school and they cant improve more or wont do better (for what ever complaint they did). This is the money making attitude they are following.....let us try to change this.....
I too agree on the comment of fighting for quality education. Yes, I also admitted my child in this school, as I had no other option, and sherwood is going to close soon. Even if we fail to make an association, we all should not compromise, for the quality, as they say at the time of admission that they have the best teachers etc etc.... so there must be a constant nagging in the admin. if the education is not good. Because we parents keep quite, thinking that, our kids will be taken on avenge by teachers if we complain. But eventually, we are giving them good support for spoiling the valuable time and academics of our child. Lets all sail together, even we are not a group.
I agree with the comment on fighting for quality education. But how? Till now this school doesnt even have parent teacher association? May be they are fraid to form one. I think we have to initiate such assocaitions now
Im an educator new to the Gulf from S America.I want to begin an assoc. & website/blog for Indian parents who have trouble entering their children into Indian schools in AB & the other emirates.If all Indian parents form a lobby,they can more successfully deal with the edu min. My capital idea is to have the parents form their own school,so as not to have to deal with lotterys & lack of space.If interested,please e-mail me (email@example.com)
I heard that half of the Sherwood had gone to this school, because we the people have no option, as we cannot make our kids sit at home and waste the academic year. These institutions are making profit out of the helpless situation of parents, but we hope and demand a better quality of education from them. All the parents who had admitted their kids in this school, should co-operate and make a point that we dont co-operate on the quality of education imparted. Atleast it should be like sherwood academy. Complainning in the ministry is a far reach object, but taking strict measures against the school for quality of education is within our reach. Every parent should stand for it together, and fight. Because, we are paying for it, and money is ofcourse not hung on trees. Atleast all of those parents who had already admitted their kids are sailing in the same boat on mine, so lets strive for the betterment of our kids.
can the institution give better educational standards when they are increasing the fees. The good teachers are leaving the school because they are not paid well.
can the institiution give better educational standards when they are increasing the fees. The good teachers are leaving the school because they are not paid well.

EFIA Kg section, they will show you the American class room; and you fools think it is very good. When you leave your children, they tae the children to ordinary Indian classroom and you are fool again.
The fellow indian is doing all these things to make money.
EFIA, KG section is good..........
i had that the school got the approval from the ministry to charge more than this. if v r going to ministry also nothing'll happen.
i m ready if a group of parents can prepare petition for ministry to this unjustifiable fee hike..
The Group is a pure commercial businees group intenting looting money from Indians. ( NTS group, running supermarket and Construction companies headed by a man from Kerala, Cleetus Francis). Now there are very limited seats available in other Indian schools and they take this opportunities to mint money from poor expatriates. If you have any other option dont join in this school as they charge exorbitant fees and zero quality in education.
actuaaly now itz jzzt 700Dhs tot. for transportation(300Dhs) & tution fee(400Dhs) i guess!! i heard tat ta teaching is not tat gud comparitively vid othr skool!! i think ta best teaching is aided by ta ooehs, auh!! only prob is tat ta skool is small & ta skool premisis is small, no 11th &12th &No extra curricular activities rest all r nyc!!
m an x student of dis skool i nevr realizd dat it wz a bst skool til i left it....jst depndz on th way u take it.....thank u 4 evythn wiz high
anybody who know the right way to inform the ministry must take the lead and all parents must cooperate???? can somebody initiate??
Tution fees per month is too high, almost double the compared to other CBSE schools. But will they guarentee a double high class of education?????If they would have used E-learning system and charged so much, that would have been justified, but with human learning if they are looting people on the name of education, then such schools must be charged and infact strict action should be taken against all schools who cross the limits of fees. Yes Ministry must be informed about these schools.
Why cant we think of complaining to the UAE education ministry regarding this baseless fee hike. They may intervene and help us to stop this or to limit the fee? Any comments???
Ya very high fees. Now its 750/- per month, and god knows they may increase next year also, and to what extent?????? Too much, for books and other things also.
every year they are increasing fees. last year they inceased 30% and next year 2010-2011 they are increasing more than 50%. no quality in education. for books they are charging 750 for 8th grade, and 500 for 1st grade which actually cost 1/4th of price.
very high fees
EFIA is the best school Yes the fee is too much the ordinary people cannot bear it the school has to do some thing
Wisdom is very good school. We saw a very good improvement in our children after joining the wisdom
Yes the fee is too much the ordinary people cannot bear it the school has to do some thing

i am in confusion some one plz tell me what can i do now i am in dubai I want to put my child in efia school abu dhabi by this coming april shall i do or what or any other school is there which the buses are coming in to al rahba city.
Their intention is only to loot money from public, very high fees higher than any other indian school, for books they charge double, frequently teachers leaving the school leaving th children in utter confusion, charges full year fees even you join the school in third term, zero extra curricular activities, no personal attention for children, very poor english accent etec etc. Nothing positive in this school other than exaggerated fees.
Would you please say Admission Procedure of this school. When you will give school admission form. My child studying KG 1. She can't continue that school next year. I want admission for your school.
Can anyone advice on a good school in Abu Dhabi; my son has been studying in Merryland (the primary school of Sherwood). They are apparently disconitinuing CBSE syllabus from the next accademic year.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a similar school with a good atmosphere?
