Horizon Private School Abu Dhabi (HPS-AUH, HPSAD) fee structure and general information

[Check] HPS has same contact details as the ADCCI directory listing for the Creative Scientific Private School in Abu Dhabi. However HPS is a newer school. Possibly CSPS closed and reopened as HPS, or renamed as HPS. ADEC directory lists HPS-Branch but no entry for HPS.

HPS Abu Dhabi is not related to the Horizon Private School in Dubai.
