Our vision is to create a first class education through providing a broad curriculum, excellent teaching & learning, and strong leadership.

Liwa International School (LIS) was established twenty-five years ago in the garden city of Al Ain, approximately 1 hour 20 minutes’ drive from both Abu Dhabi and Dubai. LIS is a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school with over 2,500 students. The school enjoys a strong reputation across the emirate of Abu Dhabi for academic success, high standards of professionalism, teacher loyalty and an oversubscribed student population. In the recent 2017 external inspection, LIS was rated ‘good’ overall (with a rating of ‘very good’ in 3 out of the 6 categories.)
