Complex Made Simple

Adec expands across the emirates

The Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec) has expanded its operations out of the emirate for the first time, with the establishment of a new council-supervised school in Ras Al Khaimah, Khaleej Times has reported. Construction work started on the new school in the Athan area in mid-June and the first phase, which includes the Kindergarten and Cycle 1 (Grades 1-5) facilities, is expected to be completed by January next year and will immediately start accepting students for the 2013-2014 academic year. The second phase, which comprises Cycle 2 (Grades 6-9) and Cycle 3 (Grades 10-12), is scheduled to be completed by 2016. Once completed, the school can accommodate over a thousand students, Adec said.
