Together... We Make The Difference









Abu Dhabi Grammar School (Canada) is located in Abu Dhabi, which is the capital and the second largest city in the United Arab Emirates. Abu Dhabi is one of the seven United Arab Emirates. The city lies on a T-shaped island jutting into the Persian Gulf in the Arabian Peninsula. The city and its surrounding communities make up an area of 67,340 km2 (26,000 sq mi). Abu Dhabi houses important offices of the federal government, and is the seat for the United Arab Emirates Government and the home for the Emirati Royal Family. Abu Dhabi has grown to be a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its rapid development and urbanization, coupled with the relatively high average income of its population, has transformed Abu Dhabi. Today the city is the country's center of political, industrial activities, and a major cultural, and commercial centre due to its position as the capital.

The school was founded by Mrs. Fatima Assad and licensed by the UAE Ministry of Education on the 1st of October 1994. The school was moved to its present location in January 2008.
