About SAPS

SAMA American Private School, established in September 2012 in Sharjah, Al-Azra Private School district, is a modern two-story campus built to meet international safety standards. Equipped with modern ICT infrastructure and smart boards in all classrooms, we offer quality education from KG1 to grade twelve. Our school fosters a vibrant community, providing engaging curricular and co-curricular programs.

The campus includes a library, computer labs, science labs, art rooms, cafeteria, outdoor sports facilities, and a clinic. Over the years, our student population has grown from 342 to 1303, driven by parent satisfaction and continual improvement. We plan to expand further with an additional building featuring an indoor gym and spacious multi-purpose hall.

Our dedicated staff of 186 includes qualified teachers, administrators, and support staff. The campus is equipped with a modern CCTV system for enhanced safety and security.

We offer "user-pays" transport services on school-owned buses, ensuring safety, comfort, and supervision for all students. Our American Curriculum/CCSS focuses on English, Math, and Science, while complying with UAE Ministry of Education requirements for Arabic, Islamic Studies, and Social Studies.

One challenge we face is effectively accommodating SEN students, as many parents don't provide prior assessment or identification of their needs upon registration. We strive to address this issue by working closely with licensed professionals.
