12 April 2008 review
  • ADEZ directory school name is "The Upper Wisdom Pvt Sch" with classes from KG to Grade 4. Making it a lower or primary school, not a secondary or high school.
  • PO Box 4559 according to ADEZ directory.
  • Additional telephone number seen in some sources +971-2-6436736? Not confirmed.
04 February 2007 review
  • Presumably the same as "Wisdom Private High School" in Abu Dhabi although has different PO Box but same tel number (UAE Yellow Pages information).
  • PO Box 4559 also given for WHS. Tel +971-2-4463736 also seen but might be incorrect.
  • Listed as Al Hekmah Al Olya Pvt School (or Private School) with tel 026423910 in Ministry of Education (MOE) directory, but no further information provided.
  • Also referred to as Wisdom Private Primary School.
  • Email address also wizhigh@eim.ae. Email wizhih@emirates.net.ae (wizhih@eim.ae) also seen but looks like it might be an error.
