The PISCO Private School (PPS) is a Filipino-owned private school, dedicated to the realization of an effective delivery of service to the Filipino community.
On 23 August 1995 the school obtained its license from the Ministry of Education (No. 1/95). In September 1995, the PPS opened its doors to students wishing to take up pre-elementary, elementary and secondary levels of education following the Philippine educational curriculum.
On 16 October 1996 the PPS was granted a Permit to Operate by the Government of the Philippines.
By authority of the Department of Education, all pupils/ students of PPS were no longer required to take the validation exams when transferring to other schools. Graduating pupils/ students were administered with the National Elementary Achievement Test and the National Secondary Achievement Test. The PPS students had been excelling in the said tests ever since these were initially administered.
At present, the PPS is continuously serving the Filipino community in Abu Dhabi and has been providing quality basic education among its students with emphasis on developing positive values, nationalism and the pride for the Filipino identity.
