​​​​​​​​​The ADNOC Schools

In 2008, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) formed the ADNOC Schools. The goal of its founders was to provide a challenging and rigorous secondary academic curriculum for Emirati and other highly qualified pupils in grades seven through eleven.

Since then, ADNOC Schools has continued to expand to meet the needs of the Emirati communities of the UAE, and to date, has campuses in Sas Al Nakhl (Abu Dhabi), Madinat Zayed, Ruwais, and Ghayathi serving close to 7,000 students from KG1 through to Grade 12.

The program of instruction is based on the successful model of the American Massachusetts State Curriculum and is delivered in English, alongside the Ministry of Education curriculum delivering Arabic, Islamic and Social Studies.

To equip students with important skills and prepare them for their careers, ADNOC Schools have introduced the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) approach to learning supporting the vision of ADNOC and the UAE.  The goal of ADNOC Schools is to prepare every school learner for admission into colleges and universities of the highest standing in the UAE and throughout the world.

The long-term goals of ADNOC Schools are: 

  • To become a leading premier education provider in the Middle East, with a learning emphasis on science, technology and math.

  • To closely follow the model of international independent schools.

  • To offer a full Advanced Placement (AP) Curriculum

  • To remain a fee paying, not-for-profit school.

The ADNOC Schools are also committed to:

  • Student achievement  

  • Academic and college counseling services

  • Recruiting and retaining highly qualified and experienced teachers.
