Last Day for Students

Welcome to Abu Dhabi International (Pvt.) School

Abu Dhabi International School (AIS) is a private, coeducational K-12 day school licensed by the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Education. The school was founded in 1992 by Mrs. Jihan Nasr, who has been dedicated to her educational mission. It has an international body of students and staff from over 70 nationalities. The total enrollment at AIS in both campuses is approximately 4000 students, and the school reserves 5% of its student body to special needs students with learning difficulties. Over the years, AIS has gained a reputation for successfully dealing with a variety of learning difficulties and disabilities through a well-structured Special Education department.

Founder's Welcome

Education is an opportunity… an opportunity for a brighter future… an opportunity for the pursuit of happiness… an opportunity for expressing one’s talent… an opportunity to change the world. This is my mission at AIS; a school that leads educational institutions to excellence, a school where children are accepted, nurtured, and provided with their needs, and grow to become unique individuals.
Our students at AIS grow with the idea that they are powerful beings who create their own destinies through the consistent exercise of good choices. Sincerely believing that actions speak louder than words, we, at AIS, seek to model this lesson throughout our school. We offer apologies, but yet we never accept excuses. This is what makes AIS a unique place and a different experience. This is what makes students of AIS pioneers in whichever field they wish to pursue.
