The SAIS Group of Schools was established in 1997 in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, upon the opening of Sharjah American International School. Dr. Aysha Ali Bin Sayyar and Dr. Nawaf Mohamed Fawaz envisioned more educational choices to become available for students and their parents. Following the success of Sharjah American International School in Sharjah, a second brand was opened in Dubai, UAE in 2005. The increased success among the schools led to yet another branch in Umm Al Quwain in 2014 and was shortly followed by our branch in Abu Dhabi in 2016.
The schools offer a rich American Curriculum which is based on internationally recognized American Education Standards including CCSS for English and Math, and NGSS standards for Science. The school models California State Education Framework.
