The Model School admissions, reviews, notes

The Model Private School Abu Dhabi information (TMS, TMPS, TMS-AUH, TMSAD)
  • The Model School (TMS) Abu Dhabi might refer to NIMS Mussafah or NIMS Abu Dhabi. Conflicting telephone numbers supplied on the NIMS Abu Dhabi websites (www.nimsuae.com and www.themodel.ae). TMS originally started in April 1987 as a branch of the New Indian Model School Dubai (NIMS Dubai).
  • The Model School website at www.themodel.ae refers to the Mussafah location, so that's probably the one which is relevant.
  • Listed as The Model Private School in ADEC directory. Also referred to as the Abu Dhabi Model School.
  • There is also an institute in California, USA, called The Model School (website www.themodelschool.org) but that one is unrelated to the NIMS Group schools in the UAE as far as we know.

10-25 November 2013 - Arabic compulsory for students in Grades 11-12 at Abu Dhabi Indian schools
  • The Model Indian School was one of several Abu Dhabi Indian schools which started started compulsory Arabic language classes for Grade 11-12 students according to Gulf News reports, claiming that ADEC said it was no longer optional. But the Gulf News said ADEC said it was optional. Even more confusingly, one of the schools contacted ADEC again, and were reportedly told again that the classes were compulsory.
08 March 2012 review
  • Gulf News reported that an additional 485 places at The Model School had been approved by ADEC to help alleviate the shortage of seats at Indian schools in Abu Dhabi. This will increase capacity from about 4,250 to 4,750 students.
  • TMS operates two shifts: morning from 0700-1215, and afternoon from 1220-1735.
