Why choosing a Private School?
Parents generally choose private schools because they offer a strong academic program, create the perfect studying environment with smaller classes, outstanding campuses and offer a wide choice of extra curricular activities such as sports and arts.
Private schools also put more emphasis on specialties like art, music and athletics and many focus on integrating important 21st century skills in their programs.
Private schools statistically perform very well on college or university entrance exams and many schools have a very high rate of students being accepted at the university of their choice.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, sits off the mainland on an island in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf. Many Hollywood and other national film production teams have used the UAE as filming locations. Whilst neighbouring Dubai gets a lot of attention, in recent years Abu Dhabi has become a popular destination. The Etihad Towers and Emirates Palace Hotel were some of the city’s landmarks used as filming locations for the movie Furious 7. In this movie, cars rush through the building and smash through the windows of the Etihad Towers.
