The Schools of Dubai Categorized by the KHDA School Rating 2021
Every parent or guardian wants their kid to get the best possible education. Dubai is full of hundreds of schools following all sorts of curriculums, including IB, UK, US, CBSE, CISCE, French, German, and MOE, etc. Plus, their fees are also very different with some schools charging very little while others charging more than most peoples’ incomes. So, it can become very confusing for parents to decide which schools are considered outstanding schools in Dubai and which ones are just okay.


Now, that is where Dubai school ratings come into play. The Dubai school ratings are governed by the KHDA that is controlled by the Government of Dubai. We have compiled the latest KHDA school rating for you so you can decide for yourself which school is good and which isn’t:
