About Our School
VIPS is a school with its vision set firmly on the future.
In the year that H.H. Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan announced 2015 to be the “Year of Innovation”, Virginia International Private School (VIPS) opened its doors to the children of Abu Dhabi.
- At VIPS we are committed to provide our students with the qualities and skills that will be essential for a citizen of the 21st century.
- Our school is a learning organization for each and every child and we carefully monitor and respond to their varied needs.
- Our teachers work collaboratively in a supportive environment to bring discovery and fun to the classroom.
Our commitment to the success of all students, means that we recognize the importance of maintaining a safe, supportive and respectful learning environment.
We do not forget either that a healthy body is as important as a healthy mind and the importance we place on physical activities, nutrition and sport complements the academic activities in which our students participate.
We utilize a Responsive Classroom approach as a framework to build positive interpersonal relationships among students and faculty and to develop a collective responsibility for maintaining a positive school culture.
VIPS encourages active parent and community participation in our daily activities. Opportunities to volunteer are numerous and vary based on parent interests, availability and classroom needs. Parents are encouraged to join us as guest readers, library support, or presenters during classroom-centered activities. Research and experience tells us that when parents are involved at school, the performance of all the children at school improves.
