About Jebel Ali School

Jebel Ali School is an evolution of Jebel Ali Primary School which was originally built to provide education for the children of expatriate workers involved in the construction of the largest man-made port in the world. It opened its doors on September 22, 1977, and has since seen a varied and exciting life. When the port construction project was complete, the village was handed over to the Government of Dubai, but Jebel Ali Primary School remained under the control of its Board of Governors.
