Revealed: Best private schools in Dubai

The ranking is based on KHDA’s annual review of schools in the emirate



Private schools in Dubai posted stellar improvements this year, according to education regulator Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).

The KHDA annually ranks schools into five categories including weak, acceptable, good, very good and outstanding.

“This year, 61 per cent of students attending inspected schools are in schools that provide a good or better quality of education,” read the Dubai School Inspection Bureau (DSIB) inspection report.

This represents a marked improvement to the 30 per cent in the academic year of 2008-2009.
