01 October 2013
  • A report in The National about six new Indian schools opening in Abu Dhabi in 2014 and 2015 said that GIIS was "... in the process of obtaining building approvals from the municipality" without giving any further information. Nothing provided by GIIS and nothing found on GIIS website to indicate they were planning to open a campus in Abu Dhabi.
22 June 2013 review
  • GIIS withdrew from the Dubai franchise in Jul 2012, GIIS Dubai was renamed as the Ambassador School. Since original information for GIIS Abu Dhabi was from franchise holders, unknown if GIIS Abu Dhabi plans still exist. Probably not for the time being.
27 March 2010 review
  • A Global Indian International School (GIIS) branch in Abu Dhabi is under consideration by the Global International Indian School Dubai owners or franchise holders (Score Plus Education, ScorePlus Education) according to a 27 March 2010 report in The National about a shortage of places in Indian schools in Abu Dhabi - the owner of Dubai's Global Indian International School, has announced plans to open a new school in the capital, for which it hopes to use an existing building. It has also indicated that it would be willing to build a new school.
  • Curriculum assumed to be ICSE as for the Dubai GIIS, rather than CBSE, but not confirmed. IB is also possible?
  • No timeline given for the proposed school, no further information supplied or found.


Last update 05 December 2014
