As the academic year began last week, another Indian CBSE school opened its doors for new students.
Galileo International School in Muaither, which follows CBSE curriculum, admitted its first batch of students last week and according to school authorities has many more seats available in the campus.
“We have licenses approved for all level but this year we are admitting students only till year 6,” said Aida Al Shahry, Chairperson of Galileo. She adds that depending on the number of students they might increase the classes.
The school as of now has students studying from KG1 to year 5 with seats available across all classes. The fee structure starts from QR6,000 annual tuition fees for KG1.
Spread over an area of 14,700 square metres, the school can accommodate 1,100 students this year with the number of seats increasing once the school is fully operational from the next academic session.
With three new schools opening in this academic year, the pressure for admission in Indian schools has eased a lot.
Even though more affordable schools like MES and Ideal are running full, opening of Loyola International School in Wukair, Monarch International School also in Wukair and Galileo in Muaither will give more options to Indian parents who are looking for schools with CBSE curriculum.
