Background

The Philippine School was conceived in 1989 by Filipino overseas contract workers under the auspices and support of His Excellency Essa bin Mohammed Al Zedjali, the Phil. Honorary Consul General, the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the Department of Education (DepEd), formerly DECS.

The school was then known as the Filipino Community School, Inc. It was granted a permit by the Philippine DepEd on 17 October 1990 for SY 1990-1991. It offered a program for pre-elementary and elementary education.

On 2 February 1990, the school was inaugurated and was renamed the Philippine Community School (PCS). It was located at the Al Wattayah. On 17 February 1990, formal classes for pre-elementary and elementary education (Grades 1 to 5 with 38 students) were opened and these were handled by volunteer teachers. The PCS gained its Government Recognition on 31 January 1995 under its new name, the PHILIPPINE SCHOOL (PS). The recognition granted to the PS also covered secondary courses, provided that the PS will operate in accordance with the laws of the Republic of the Philippines on the organization, administration, and supervision of private educational institutions.
