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.

The school is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi, India (C.B.S.E Delhi, India affiliation No. 6630004) and is recognized and licensed by the Ministry of Education, Private Section, Abu Dhabi Zone. (Ministry of Education, Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. License No: 37)

The school prepares students for the All India School Senior Certificate Exam at the end of grade 12.

Our School takes pride in nurturing students and besides academic and extracurricular excellence, we emphasize on the importance of integrity, politeness, kindness and selflessness. Discipline, perseverance, zeal to excel, clarity in thought and decision-making ability are an integral part of our education system as it helps to set and achieve goals and qualities required to meet the challenges of the modern society.

I am proud that our staff is valued and the families connected. Our proven track record is testimony to the sincere dedication of our teachers, well supported by the parents who take pride in their ward’s success as student of this truly great Institution.

The first few months of the school year are always busy. We begin the year with working on revision and clarification, with a focus on creation of our strategic plans and needs of the near future to which our Board Members contribute immensely.

I am delighted to know about the launch of an informative website, yet another golden chapter in our School’s history. This will enable the students and parents to know our vision besides our alumina being able to walk through the hallowed portals of their Alma Mater, connecting with their dear ones and contributing to further enhance the spirit of oneness our School has been proud of.

Neeraj - Photo copy       Welcome to ADIS – A dynamic and vibrant learning community…

Our school….. Abu Dhabi Indian School is a strong believer of never ending process of learning for all stake holders-students, staff, parents and the community at large, and a drive to develop and sustain a stimulating child centric learning environment for students of all abilities.

The school provides a well-equipped system for the demands and opportunities of the twenty first century, offering a differentiated, effective and rigorous curriculum as an entitlement to all.

Our strength lies in resurrection of core values each day, each year, into the hearts and mind of each student, and create independent thinking, creative and sensitive individuals who will serve as a torch bearer to further ignite many more minds with love, beauty and happiness.

We encourage in displaying integrity in thought, word and action, to stand up for what is right and to accept mistakes with grace and positivity.

Excellence is an attitude and will continue to inculcate in our children – pursuit of excellence not for success but to excel in whatever they want to do in life.

A strong disciplined and caring environment based on mutual respect, love for each other, nature and all forms of life must prevail in the school.

At ADIS, our teachers are innovative, compassionate, approachable and well trained to support and inspire their students for preparing them towards better future. They have always open arms, share a healthy relationship with the students and encourage them to express their ideas and opinions fearlessly.

My belief, as an educator, we need to discover how each child learns, in order to differentiate our instruction to support diverse learning styles; all children are different. I also want all the children to love their school.

A successful school does not function in isolation. As a Principal, it is my endeavor to develop a tripolar bonding between the school, the students and the parents, so as to share the collaborative efforts that bring forth spiritual nurturing & effective and successful learning.

With our open door policy, we have extensive programs to maximize parental engagement and enhance their role in the development of their wards. They are well informed on the progress and opportunity to contribute and participate in their child’s school experience.

School life must be a quest for meaning that goes far beyond the limitations of conventional curricula, text books and standardized examination so that when pupil leave us they are secure in their ability, strong in their principles & Conventions and confident to face challenge.

I would like to acknowledge with gratitude, the dedication and sustain efforts of all those people who played an integral part in the growth and development of this great institution over the past decades. These include the Honorary Board of Governors, the Former Principals, past and present Staff, the Alumni and most, of course, my STUDENTS.

A SCHOOL which celebrates inviduality and propel each other to constantly better their best…..
