Director’s Message



A big welcome to the Athena Family of schools which is rapidly expanding, and includes 4 US curriculum schools and two nurseries in Sharjah, and 2 US curriculum schools and 3 UK curriculum schools in Dubai. We are committed to delivering quality learning underpinned by Islamic values together with a deep appreciation of the UAE culture. We work tirelessly to ensure that all Athena learners are independent, confident, always curious, creative, innovative, technologically literate and socially responsible.

We want to work in close partnership with the community to ensure that all students have choices and make a positive contribution to their school, their local community, their families, the UAE and the Global community.

We look forward to working closely with you, the parents, the most important partners in education to achieve this.
Good luck and thank you for choosing an Athena school.

Ian McNiff
Group Director of Schools

Quran Verse of the Day

“In the creation of the heavens and the earth the alternation of the night and the day, in the ships that sail in the sea with their load…. in the rain which Allah sends down from the sky and thus revives the earth after its death; and then He spread in all kinds of animals; in the changing of the winds: in the clouds which have been left suspending between the heaven and the earth -in all these are clear signs for the people who understand”

Quran [2:164]
