Abu Dhabi Indian School


Recommended Posts

Abu Dhabi Indian School, which is a premier community school in the Gulf, could well be considered a twin of this youthful nation which came into being in the year 1971. The school began functioning in the year 1975 from the humble premises of the India Social Centre, Abu Dhabi, to cater to the needs of the children of the Indian community in Abu Dhabi. As the strength of students grew, the need for new premises became evident. Mr. Mohan Jashanmal, CEO of Jashanmal National Co. and members of the community were instrumental in approaching the late President of the UAE, H.H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan with this in view. He generously gifted a plot of land, measuring 175mx 150m, in Shabia Muroor, New Airport Road, to the Indian Ambassador to build an educational institution. The school was moved to the sprawling new premises in the year 1980. It has been functioning effectively for the past 32 years and has distinguished itself in various areas. Our students have distinguished themselves in various fields and are well placed in life not only in India, but in different parts of the world.

We are committed to impart the quality education that is holistic in its perspective. Well qualified and experienced staff are appointed to train and develop all kinds of skills among the students at various levels i.e. kindergarten, primary, middles, secondary and senior secondary.

Academic achievement is enhanced by energizing the body and the mind through sports and cultural activities. The students attend school in a healthy, harmonious and competitive environment and graduate ready to face the challenges of the world with confidence.

It is our sincere endeavour to light the fire of inquiry, commitment and zeal in the young minds that step into our portals and help them chart their courses in life. We are dedicated to hone young children into becoming global citizens of the future. Being away from home, we enlighten and teach them to respect values that are inherently Indian, so that they remain connected to their native country.

Our students also learn to respect the culture and values of the UAE since they enjoy the added advantage of being in a country that is close to home in more ways than one. Living in the UAE, in a multinational and multicultural milieu, they are exposed to the international community and learn what global citizenship is all about in simple ways.

Summary of ADEK Inspection

The Abu Dhabi Indian School provides an acceptable quality of education. Senior leaders and the governing body have established and maintained a safe and caring environment in which respect for others is very highly developed. Students conduct themselves maturely and are keen to learn. The school fully integrates students with special educational needs (SEN) into classes. Students achieve well in the Kindergarten and the secondary school. Students leave at the end of grade 12 with good qualifications, particularly in the key subjects of mathematics, English and science. Students in the middle and primary schools make less progress than those in the Kindergarten and secondary school. This is because teaching does not match students’ interests and needs as effectively. Students achieve in line with expectations during their time in these parts of the school. Throughout the school the most able, the least able and those with SEN make less progress than they could because teachers are not adapting work to meet their specific needs.
