Principal’s Message

On behalf of my colleagues, parents, and students of Dubai Arabian American Private School, I welcome you to our website, which aims to capture the flavor of our school to highlight DAAPS’ philosophy through pictures, newsletters, academic programs, extracurricular activities, student support services, just to mention a few. I am confident that the information posted will give you a good idea of the many excellent educational programs our students participate in.

The first word revealed by the Quran is “Iqra” READ! Our religion asked us to seek knowledge, educate ourselves, and be educated! We fully believe and are committed to these messages as we offer an enriched American curriculum for KG to Grade 12 students that are aligned with the California Common Core Standards (CCCS) and the Ministry of Education standards. The UAE vision, culture, and national identity are deeply embedded throughout all subjects and we pride ourselves in our highly effective Arabic, Islamic, Social Studies, and Moral education programs.

As an Emirati private school in Dubai, we are a Family and Community oriented school that promotes high academic standards, global citizenship, and responsibility within a supportive learning community that is deeply grounded in UAE’s rich heritage and culture. We believe in a student-centered approach to learning and teaching. Our curriculum allows students to develop and commit to the understanding, skills, and dispositions of global citizenship, leadership, creativity, innovation, and sustainability.

We pride ourselves on being an effective learning community that embraces the well-being and happiness of all members. We welcome collective responsibility that allows for collaboration as well as the sharing of problems and solutions among staff, students, parents, and community members.

To discover more about Dubai Arabian American Private School, enjoy browsing our website! Or better yet, I invite you to visit our campus to see the exciting work of our students and the joy of learning and teaching that permeates throughout our beautiful campus.

We hope to welcome you soon to our campus.  

Warm Regards, 
Dr. Cornelia Weiner | Executive Principal
