Girls - Message from the principal

Welcome to the Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for Girls (SZPAG).  Since 2000, we have served many families, building a positive and vibrant reputation for leading bilingual education in Abu Dhabi.


SZPAG believes strongly in the power of our students, and in their ability to change the world for the better.  Our mission, ‘Honoring the past, Educating for the future’ is exemplified through our beliefs in learning, growth, and discovery.  We fulfill our mission through providing our learners with a unique blend of rich UAE heritage and national identity, and a modern, innovative approach to learning. Our strong educational program offering American curriculum is complimented by the Arabic and Islamic syllabus allowing our students to find their gifts, their voices, their drive, themselves.


There are advantages that students have when they learn and grow alongside one another.  SZPAG offers an abundance of avenues for self-exploration and development, as well as a wealth of peer role models.  Our curriculum has been developed to be deliberate, progressive and holistic to unleash the extraordinary potential of students in our care.  Our program supports inclusion and is differentiated, defining our practice.  We cater to all ability levels, and are currently on our way to becoming an Apple Distinguished School with the implementation of our 1-1 iPad and Laptop programs. 


At SZPAG, we hire the best faculty and staff, and support them with state of the art equipment.  We are serious about setting high standards.  You can feel the pure joy of learning, growing and sharing on our campus.  I am proud to be a part of all that is SZPAG.  Together we are different, stronger, better.  Register your child.  Let us inspire them to be fearless, and educate them to be leaders.
