Philadelphia Private School - Dubai | An American Curriculum School


Philadelphia Private School is a child-focused, learner-centered school. We believe that every child can learn and therefore we aim at gathering accurate data indicating how learners are performing, why they are performing well or not so well, and above all how we can help learners perform at the highest individual levels possible.

At PPS, we diagnose and assess the academic performance of learners and device plans to empower learners to make the right decisions and to take responsibility for their academic achievement and personal growth. We work on removing barriers to learning such as embarrassment, weak skill mastery, and lack of self-confidence in learning. We work on recognizing at first-hand the accomplishments of learners.

At PPS, we recognize and believe that academic excellence is only part of a school's mission. We work on developing and promoting embedded and explicit character education, leadership responsibility, conflict-resolution skills, decision-making and choice-weighing strategies. Accordingly we encourage learners to set improvement goals and become life-long learner. Read More
