About us

The Glenleg School of Abu Dhabi was founded in 2008 by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC). It is one of the educational entities and is part of ADNOC?s educational family of learning institutions, including the Petroleum Institute, the ADNOC Technical Institute, and ADNOC Achievers Oasis.The primary goal of GSAD is to create and conduct a challenging and rigorous secondary academic curriculum and program for highly qualified students from the UAE and other countries. The program of instruction is based on the successful model of American independent schools of the highest quality and will be delivered in English (with the exception of Arabic Language and Social Studies, Islamic Studies, and World Languages). The founding and setting up of the school is being based on a collaboration with the Glenelg Country School, a leading independent school in the USA. The goal of the school is to prepare every school graduate for admission into colleges and universities of the highest standing both here and throughout the world.The curriculum of the school is American-based and leads towards the Advanced Placement (AP) examinations as the school develops and evolves. The Advanced Placement program comprises college-level courses in all academic disciplines which are developed and maintained by the College Board in the US. Each Advanced Placement course follows a prescribed syllabus which culminates in an external public examination. As an external qualification, the Advanced Placement is recognized by many universities throughout the world and is used for acceptance and placement into many of the world?s leading universities.In September 2008, GSAD opened for grades seven through eleven.
