The Far Eastern Private School (FEPS) initially began its operations in August 2000 as “Love and Care” with a total strength of 170 students from kindergarten to high school. However, the school closed its operations in February 2001 and transferred its students to other schools. With the dynamic management and concerted efforts of Mr. Ahmed Al Ansari and his loving better half, Mrs. Maria Teresa Sales Al Ansari, it re-opened as the new “The Far Eastern Private School” in September 2001. The school was formally inaugurated by His Excellency Amable Aguiluz III, Philippine Ambassador to the UAE in the presence of His Excellency Sheikh Khalid bin Saqer bin Hamad Al Qassimi, the School Board, faculty and the students and the parents. The school is approved by the Ministry of Education and Youth, UAE and follows the American curriculum and is compatible with the Filipino curriculum.

The FEPS has through the years proven its meaningful existence as a haven of academic excellence as indicated by a steady growth of the school population every year. The management and administration continues to address the needs of times, thus, with the commendable growth of Filipino students, the school was granted the use of Filipino curriculum. True to its vision-mission, the FEPS continues to uphold its name in the UAE.


The FEPS envisions becoming a globally competitive center of academic excellence and human development by providing holistic quality education in the U.A.E.


As a haven of academic excellence, the FEPS commits to develop God-fearing, academically-equipped, and socially upright individuals regardless of race, creed, culture, gender, and ethnicity.


In the pursuit of the school’s mission and conduct of work, the FEPSIAN is guided by the values of excellence, humility, honesty, continuous development, speed, teamwork, hard work and love of nature.
