Abu Dhabi to have 10 new affordable schools

As many as 10 new schools offering affordable fee structures are set to open in Abu Dhabi over the next three years.

That's according to the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (Adek), which added that plots and vacant public school buildings will be made available to investors for the development.

The schools will add to the more than 180 private schools in the emirate.

"Education is the cornerstone of the UAE’s national development process, and the private education system is a vital source of support for the government’s aspirations to provide high-quality programmes, while supporting the economic structure of the country," Dr Ali Al Nuaimi, director at the Adek, added.
