HISTORY

The New Filipino Private School is the very first Filipino School in the United Arab Emirates to be given the License to Operate using the Filipino Curriculum by the Department of Education, Manila, Philippines and Ministry of Education, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. Its founders are three dynamic and self-motivated ladies, namely; Miss Aghsan Musa, Mrs. Myrtle Fernandez and Mrs. Zenaida Dizon. They were assisted by two well-rounded educators, Mrs. Luzviminda P. Corpuz, who was then the Subject Coordinator and Mrs. Lolita Irong, the Academic Chairman, together with Mrs. Anna Castillo, our School Registrar then. The school was officially inaugurated on  September 14, 1996 with enrollees of less than 200 students from Kinder One to Grade Ten.  It was initially manned by 21 well-experienced and highly qualified teachers meticulously screened from various schools in Manila both private and public.  The three buildings it used to occupy in Ramla, Sharjah was expanded to four on the second year of its operation due to the increase of enrollment.

In 2007, the Ministry of Education, U.A.E. issued a circular ordering all private schools occupying villas to either build or transfer to a school building. From Ramla, an ideal school building was offered to The NFPS, the location was perfect because it was just adjacent to it, Dasman. Its ideal location (see school-map) makes it accessible to all Filipino Communities living in Sharjah and nearby Emirates like Dubai, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain and Ras Al Khaimah.  Since 1996 the enrollment keeps on increasing year after year. Now, on its 18th School year, The NFPS has gone a long way with 1400 students from Pre-School to High School, catapulted with the strength of 80 ever devoted Faculty and Staff.
