Not to be confused with the Emirates Private School, an MOE curriculum school for Arab students (some directories get tel numbers mixed up between the two schools), which has a branch near PEPS in Baniyas. Also not to be confused with The Philippine School Baniyas. PEPS started after Pisco School closed in 2013, and Pisco students transferred to PEPS.
