Accompanying HE Dr. Al Khaili was HE Mohammed Salem Al Dhaheri, Executive Director of School Operations at ADEC.

During his visit, Dr. Al Khaili briefed the faculty, staff and students of the schools about ADEC’s strategy; its four main areas: provision of world-class education to all Abu Dhabi students; ensuring academic achievements and learning outcomes meet international standards; providing quality private education; and enhancing national identity and heritage.
