The Ruwais campus expanded to include Grades 7 to 10 in 2011 and Grade 12 by 2013.

The educational family continued to grow with the introduction of a new campus in Madinat Zayed and opened a fourth campus in Ghayathi. Through its college preparatory schools, they aim to prepare students for both local and international universities.
