Recommended Posts

Abu Dhabi Grammar School (Canada) is located in Abu Dhabi, the capital and the second-largest city in the United Arab Emirates. Abu Dhabi is one of the seven United Arab Emirates. The city lies on a T-shaped island jutting into the Persian Gulf in the Arabian Peninsula. The city and its surrounding communities make up an area of 67,340 km2 (26,000 sq mi). Abu Dhabi houses principal offices of the federal government and is the seat for the United Arab Emirates Government and the home for the Emirati Royal Family. Abu Dhabi has grown to be a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its rapid development and urbanization, coupled with the relatively high average income, has transformed Abu Dhabi. Today the city is the country's center of political, industrial activities, and a significant cultural and commercial center due to its position as the capital.

The School was founded by Mrs. Fatima Assad and licensed by the UAE Ministry of Education on the 1st of October 1994. The School was moved to its present location in January 2008. Currently, we have over 730 students from 36 different nationalities enrolled at AGS. Abu Dhabi Grammar School (Canada) is accredited by the Nova Scotia Department of Education, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Summary of ADEK Inspection

The overall quality of the School's performance is acceptable. Senior leaders and staff have begun to improve all performance standards. This improvement is due to their commitment to teamwork and robust professional development. Staff collaborates in a shared vision, underpinned by an accurate understanding of the School's strengths and areas for development. Students are making at least acceptable progress in all subject areas. Recent assessment results for the School's lower grades have shown a substantial rise in standards over the last twelve months. This is because teachers have higher expectations, and support for most students' learning has been significantly enhanced. Provision and planning for the ablest are less well developed. High-quality resources and an attractive learning environment support the effective delivery of the curriculum.

School's strengths

  • Impact of the principal and senior leaders on the recent rapid improvements in the School's quality of education
  • Positive relationships within the School as shown in students' good attendance, behavior and attitudes to learning
  • Students' understanding of UAE and other world cultures
  • Development of students as caring, well-rounded individuals.
