Welcome Message

Welcome to Horizon Private School – Branch (HPS-Br.), a co-educational school with a student-centered approach at every level. This is defined by the manner in which we educate, mentor and encourage our students, providing an exceptional learning experience that is inspiring and empowering.

Following the American Curriculum (Common Core State Standards), HPS-Br. provides a perfectly balanced education, which combines high academic standard with extraordinary personal development and a comprehensive extra-curricular program.  Furthermore, we nurture each student’s distinctive talents and abilities, an approach that has proven to be very successful, resulting in high attainment and progress year-after-year. 

At HPS-Br., we are a caring community within a community, with class sizes that allow teachers to get to know each student as an individual and to differentiate lessons accordingly. Moreover, although first and foremost we are a center of education, HPS-Br. offers much more than that. The individual development off each student is underpinned by regular opportunities to perform in the sporting and musical arenas.

Our students adore their school and are justly proud of all they do.  They love learning and there is a true sense of fun, with all talents being allowed to flourish in a caring, structured and secure environment.

Principal’s Message

At HPS-Br. we believe that every child is a valuable gift from God. Every child is born to add value to this world. Our duty as educators is to make our students believe in themselves and help them discover their hidden talents. A dry seed that has no sign of life, once given the right conditions, will grow into a tree and add beauty to the environment, similarly every child, once given the right education and the proper care at school, will succeed and contribute positively to the world.

Why us?

What makes Horizon Private School – Branch unique to any other school in the area, is that we do REALLY CARE about our students.

What’s Happening

Congratulations to our senior student Yousuf Hani Saleh for scoring 800/800 in his Math SAT exam 🎉👏🏻Yousuf has been a star since he joined our school in grade 3.

Here’s a few words from Yousuf…

“I've been in HPS-Branch for more than 8 years, and I can tell you that my experience in every one of those years has been nothing short of wonderful. If I were asked to describe my teachers, section coordinators, and principal in one word, I'd say that one word is not enough to describe them. Rich in personality and patience, vibrant school members, and excellent in every meaning of the word; they are truly the best of the best. I've had my ups and downs, but my friends and our favorite spot at the overpriced cafeteria were always there!’’

“I wish to leave an imprint on humanity. Recently, I've taken an interest in programming, 3-D modelling, and 3-D animation. I've created multiple 3D models and animations using a program called Blender which I implemented into some of my fun programs. I've made some 2D animations using a program called Adobe Character Animator which I submitted as my projects for my Chemistry and Psychology courses in the past. I want to major, if God wills, in Biology or Chemistry after my father drew my interest in exploring the human brain after he asked the question some time ago, "how much do you think we [humans] know about the human brain even with all our recent advances in technology?... Only 3%!"

We are so proud of you, Yousuf! The sky is your limit! #hpsbranch #studentlife #motivation #proud #khalifacity #abudhabi #schoolsinabudhabi #parentsofabudhabi #classof2021
