Mrs. Paula Musson

Education has been rapidly transforming over the last five years. Our students are no longer asked to memorize and rote -learn rather they are asked to compare, contrast and demonstrate their understanding. These skills are higher order critical thinking skills that will transform each child into a citizen ready for the future.

At ADNOC Schools we pride ourselves on high expectations and are happy to announce that ADNOC Schools received full international accreditation from the Middle States Association which solidifies our reputation as a premier school in the Middle East.

Your child is a child of the 2020 vision of the United Arab Emirates and of a future that we do not yet know. It will be their ability to imagine connections, transfer knowledge into new unknown scenarios with courage that will see them thorough. I want your child to know that NASA students are not chosen for their academics alone rather for their determination to keep trying after every failure and keep focused on their goals.

I look forward to continuing a partnership with you next year and thank everyone for their support and commitment to the highest quality of education.

Mr. James Pastore

Dear ADNOC Male Campus Community of parents, learners and friends,

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to our school for the 2015-2016 academic year. We are very proud of the efforts of the teachers and support staff as we move our campus community forward and ever upward. We are a building filled with energy, and this is reflected in the work that goes on in classroom lessons every day, done in a spirit of teamwork with cooperation and respect. The world economy no longer rewards people just for what they know. Google knows everything. The world economy rewards people for what they can do with what they know. The ADNOC schools are committed to a rigorous application of a standards based curriculum that is aligned with the programs in the United States, leading up to the challenges of Advanced Placement (AP) classes in the last several high school years, thereby providing our students with the opportunity to apply to and attend some of the finest universities and post-high school programs in the world. One particular emphasis for us in the curriculum is a move to adding elements of STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Math) to all areas of our curriculum, and this is a focused challenge for our faculty with the support of the curriculum office of ADNOC schools.

A strong relationship between the school and parents is needed to support students and we were pleased to see a more than 100% increase in the amount of parents taking the opportunity to attend the “Back to School” program in mid September. I was particularly impressed with the dozen student volunteers who served as guides to parents that afternoon, and these students are a fine example of the great work done at this school to grow our boys into young gentlemen. We look forward to many more such events, while also working with parents 1-on-1 to ensure that we do our best to keep parents informed of student progress at school. Our partnership with parents is goal we have as a school to develop in our students a school culture where the National Identity as well as Arabic and Islamic values are honored on a daily basis, while also seeking to connect these to the world where we live as we roll forward farther into the 21st century. We hold daily assemblies to start each day with the National Anthem, and then a student reader recites from the Quaran as a reminder of the national and religious respect held in such high esteem by ADNOC schools.

I take great pleasure in seeing the “extra” things done by staff for your sons. For example, the staff who on their own helped 50+ student to organize the Iftar celebration on September 21st was a wonderful example of students from all over the world coming together to share a special evening together with their teachers. Another special event was the STEAM special event on September 22nd where all the boys in school that day and all the teachers made teams to have a contest to build the highest tower possible with a limited amount of tape and a stack of newspapers. The creativity, team building and focus that the boys and their teachers exhibited that day was exiting to see, and we plan to do many more such activities to combine fun with positive educational experiences.

There are various means with which you can communicate with us on the Male Campus. Feel free to call the office to speak with the Secondary School principal’s assistant Ms. Dana Tamini to make appointments to speak to teachers, supervisors, the counselor Mr. Brandon, and Mr. Jeff Sykes, the Vice Principal. You may also email the school staff and even leave a note in the “Parent Suggestion Box” in the male campus front lobby whenever you wish to communicate in writing.

Together we can help your sons achieve high levels of academic excellence and at the same time help them grow as young leaders of tomorrow, the leaders that are needed for a better, brighter future in the UAE and all over the world. We are committed to doing our best to provide your sons with the best possible social and educational experience we can at ADNOC schools, and I personally look forward to facilitating for staff and teachers so that they can inspire your sons to achieve their very best each and everyday.

Our emphasis must be on the application and the creative use of knowledge, and at ADNOC Male Campus that is our goal with our students, your sons.

Thank you for your support and I look forward to meeting every one of you as the school year progresses.
