Admission Tips

The number of Indian expatriates is growing in Abu Dhabi as more and more Indians are relocating in search of better job opportunities and better education for their children. Therefore, many top-notch schools have been started in the recent decade in Abu Dhabi. New methods of teaching mathematics and science have been introduced, and more activity-based learning has been adopted. 

Also, due to the closer political connection between India and the gulf it is easier for Indian expats to settle down in Abu Dhabi. Many Malayalees, Tamilians, Gujaratis, and North Indians are already citizens of the UAE. And for this diverse community, the process of admission in Abu Dhabi’s Indian schools has been made easier. The admission is so simple that any parent can comprehend quickly and have their child enrolled easily.
