Just like all great endeavors, the establishment of The Philippine Global School (TPGS) started as a vision in the hearts and minds of its founders, a group of Filipino investors. These Filipino investors had stayed in UAE for quite long time and had seen that there is indeed a great need of having a Filipino school that would make a difference in the Gulf Region, particularly in UAE. Just like any other parent, they wanted quality education not only for their own children but for the rest of the Filipino children as well. It is the dream of these concerned Filipino investors that their children will learn to value their cultural heritage as Filipinos and this can only be possible if they study in a school that offers Philippine curriculum. This dream seemed beyond reach for so many years but it never stopped growing in their hearts and minds. Like a sweet fruit waiting for the right time that it becomes ripe and ready for harvest in due time, this great dream finally came into reality, just at the right time.
With the help and able support of a local sponsor who eventually assumed the post as the school’s chairman, TPGS was established on August 16, 2015 under Agreement No. ADEC/2015 1113. This day marked the birth of the Filipino school in Abu Dhabi. Its location is 21st Street Muroor Rd. Abu Dhabi UAE.
TPGS formally opened in September 20, 2015 of the Academic Year 2015-2016 with the carrier banner, “Leader in Academic Excellence and Values Formation.” It was surprising and remarkable to note that more than 1800 enrollees flocked at TPGS during its first year of operation.
With the able leadership of Ms. Leticia M. Maniaul Managing Directress and Principal respectively, plus the collaborative effort of the highly competent teachers and staff.
Inspired by its success and consistent with its mission to provide quality education, TPGS continues to upgrade its facilities. The school administration also makes sure that the teachers are always updated and kept abreast with the latest trends in education through (CPD) Continuous Professional Development. That is why TPS teachers undergo pertinent seminars on a regular basis to keep up with the newest teaching approaches.
Majority of the graduates in high school passes the entrance examinations in prestigious colleges and universities in the Philippines such as University of Santo Tomas, MAPUA and Southville University.
TPGS continuous on its Journey of Discovery under the ADEC Policies and Student Competency Framework in 21st Century Learners.
