A high performing K-12 American Curriculum school, situated in the city of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.


The Elementary School offers a child centered and academically rigorous curriculum that addresses and supports the intellectual, social and emotional needs of each child. Our goal is to develop young people who are independent and creative learners and thinkers, whilst being open minded, caring, good communicators, ready to take responsibility for making a difference to the world around them.

Students spend the majority of their time with the class teacher, where they focus on studying English, Mathematics, Science, Information Technology and Moral Education, whilst they are taught by specialist teachers in Arabic, Islamic and Social Studies, Art, Music and Physical Education. We recognize and celebrate the fact that for many students, English is a second language. Pastoral care is provided by a dedicated team of class teachers, assistants and supervisors and we ensure that all children are cared for, feel safe and happy as a valued member of the Al Dhafra family.
