It is not always easy to select a school in UAE. We as parents have a wide range of options to find the best school in Dubai for their children. It is important to decide certain things before you begin the search for a school. You may consider the fees of a school, the ratings, the distance from your home, the school type, etc.

How many schools are in Dubai?

Dubai has 210 registered schools in UAE. There are 24 different types of curriculum, which cater to various cultures and nationalities. From American, Chinese, French, Filipino, UK, and more, of which the majority of schools tend to have IGCSE, CBSE, and IB.

The schools are rated according to their performance in 5 categories (Outstanding, Very Good, Good, Acceptable & Weak) by KHDA.

What is KHDA?

KHDA (Knowledge and Human Development Authority) is the authority for regulating academic quality and assessment in Dubai. KHDA conducts regular inspection drives and prepares reports on the performance of each school after carefully evaluating its strengths and weaknesses.

What are the KHDA’s assessment methods?

  • The learning environment in the school
  • Education’s effectiveness
  • A student’s ability to achieve
  • School’s self-evaluation
  • Curriculum containing fundamental subjects and other important subjects like Islamic Education, English, Arabic, and Science.
  • The school will also be judged based on the quality of leadership it imparts, academic achievements in core subjects, and the attitude of students towards the overall teaching facilities.

Also, more attention is given to students with special educational needs and disabilities. Further evaluated to identify the scope of innovation in school’s curriculum and to furnish Emirati students on academic achievements, moral education, and social studies.

Did You Know: At government institutes, primary and secondary education is free of cost for all UAE citizens.

How to select the best school in Dubai?

It would be wise to keep in mind that the factors based on which the KHDA rates different schools, may very well not be related to you or your child at all. Every year, the KHDA inspects particular points based on a weighting system.

For example, in 2014/15, the main focus of KHDA was on the provision of special education needs and certain core subjects. Then in 2016/17, the main focus shifted to academic results obtained in external examinations.

School Fees 2020 – 2021 (Contains All 210 Schools)

As a parent, you must first weigh all your criteria before simply choosing from the list of Best Schools in Dubai that are rated based on the KHDA criteria. Consider the locality you stay in, how far is it from the School or how much are you willing to pay for the fees. 

Note: For your convenience, please download the below file containing fees from 210 schools in Dubai. Using the filter, you can view school fees of grades from lowest to highest.
