Principal's Message


Principal’s Vision – ‘A happy school family consisting of intrinsically motivated successful individuals’.

Our goal is to provide students with a world class learning experience to ensure that they are prepared for success in higher education and at the workplace.

At Emirates American School we follow the American curriculum to contextualise the students’ learning by using the environment around them and where appropriate, allowing them ownership over their own learning, which is critical to their success.

We also focus heavily on learning behaviours such as collaboration, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, and leadership in the process of learning. At EAS every student is encouraged and guided by talented, caring and committed staff.

We follow the approach of Positive Education that blends academic learning with character and well-being.  Attainment and progress are critical in a child’s education and we know that happy children succeed.

Founded in 2013, the school has shown tremendous growth with several accolades such as an accreditation with a very high rating from Cognia (AdvancED), being listed in the Top 12 of PISA international test results, ‘Advanced’ rating in the UAE Schools Review and ‘Developed’ rating in the Online Learning review etc.

We passionately believe that the quality of an education is seen less in the questions children answer than in the questions they ask. By focusing on children’s wellbeing and happiness and by ensuring they are given the skills and tools to learn based on the values and principles of our great nation, we know we will get results the right way.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
