Principal - Adrianna Chestnut
Founding Principal of Bright Learners Private School, Adrianna Joy Chestnut brings to her role an extensive academic background with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Miami University, an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Wright State, coupled with a Principal License from Ohio. Furthering her educational career, Principal Chestnut is currently in the midst of completing her doctorate in leadership at Trevecca Nazarene, with a particular focus on school leadership within the UAE. Pursuing an education in this specialized field came with the aim of allowing Principal Chestnut to immerse herself into the depths of the UAE community, and adopt specialized techniques and solutions to better the education in the country. Prior to accepting the role of Principal at Bright Learners Private School, Principal Chestnut had gained years of experience in the United States, as well as the UAE, having joined the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK), lending her set of skills focused on school development and academic excellence.
Principal Chestnut’s educational experiences have afforded her the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse group of people to meet the common goal of increasing student achievement and well-being. Her educational philosophy is based on her uncompromising belief that all students can learn, given a positive learning environment, strong and knowledgeable leadership, a committed and focused educational team, an encouraging community, and a supportive family. She is focused on creating a school that welcomes the masses and strives to inspire and challenge young minds. With this in mind, Principal Chestnut has constructed a highly affordable tuition structure with a high-quality education.
With her student-focused leadership, Principal Chestnut aims to forge strong relationships with all members of the school community. New members of Bright Learners Private School can expect nothing short of academic excellence from this new institution. “We recognize that choosing the right school can be one of the most difficult decisions facing any parent. It is our goal to support them while on that journey. Our school’s aim is to nurture creative, inspired, collaborative and innovative learners who are equipped with the tools, knowledge, and skill to make a positive impact on themselves and their environment. We encourage parents to be active participants in life at Bright Learners and we welcome you to be part of our family.”
