UAE Social Studies

UAE Social Studies is taught to all students from Grade One as per ADEC guidelines.  The curriculum and learning materials come from ADEC and is delivered by approved and qualified teachers.  The subject matter is designed to teach the values of citizenship and loyalty in their broader meaning among our students. We will emphasize on the concepts of citizenship and heritage that combine the principles of culture, traditions, and affiliations to the UAE.

As citizens in the UAE, we take great pride in the country we are to live in and the inclusion of UAE social studies in the timetable ensure all students are able to learn about the UAE’s geography, history, and language.  They are important parts of our education in the UAE and are incorporated into our school’s curriculum to provide students with a better understanding and appreciation for the history and culture of the UAE.

The United Arab Emirates is located in the southeastern end of the Arabian Peninsula, and is made up of the seven emirates: Abu Dhabi (the largest), Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al-Khaimah, and Umm Al-Qaiwain. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was the founder of the UAE and ruler of the federation since 1971. He was succeeded by his son, Sheikh Khaifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyann in 2004. Currently, the UAE is home to around 9 million people and is known to have the seventh largest oil reserves in the world.
