Welcome to Yas American Academy!

Education is one of the most valuable things we can possess. It influences how we see the world and contribute to it, which is why it’s so important to choose the best school in Abu Dhabi for your children. Having worked within Aldar education for the last 13 years, I am fully committed to the vision that Aldar Education has: Empowering the next generation to shape our future and facilitating this through our promise of delivering the highest standards of education and inspiring a love for learning.

We are an inclusive school, and we place a very high emphasis on our school values, ensuring that they filter through everything that we do. We are passionate about ensuring that our students receive a well-rounded curriculum and develop a love of learning. We offer a substantial extra-curricular program for our students, providing them with opportunities to develop skills that they didn’t know they had!

Our school offers a friendly welcome to all, and we work hard to foster excellent relationships both with students and parents. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support.

If you have any further questions or need more information, please contact us through the school office.
