  • TEPS is a villa school with relocation plans? Radiant Education says "Radiant has been steadily progressing in making arrangements from all fronts to help The Ellite Private School [sic] relocate and expand to become a full fledged school from a villa school that it is today. Having got the govt. approved land and other formalities being in place it should only be a matter of time when this major transition will eventually happen to benefit one and all."
  • New location is apparently Mohamed Bin Zayed City (MBZ City) and opening date in 2014? A Khaleej Times report 30 May 2013 said As a villa school, he has no solution to the safety issue till he moved to his 18,000sqm new school in Mohammed bin Zayed City in 2014, referring to comments made by the principal, Hatem Darwish, about the ADEC school inspections.
