Dubai’s private education sector has once again demonstrated its commitment to excellence, with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) bestowing the coveted ‘Outstanding’ rating upon 23 esteemed institutions in its latest round of school inspections.

As the governing body tasked with overseeing the Emirate’s private education landscape, the KHDA plays a crucial role in upholding rigorous standards across diverse curricula offerings. The inspections serve as a comprehensive evaluation of each school’s ability to foster both academic prowess and holistic student development.

According to the KHDA’s report, Dubai is home to 220 private schools, catering to the educational needs of 365,572 students. The most recent inspection cycle encompassed 209 schools, accounting for the education of 360,420 pupils.

The rating system employed by the KHDA spans five tiers: Outstanding, Very Good, Good, Acceptable, and Weak. The Authority has announced that 81 percent of Dubai’s private school students now attend institutions rated Good or higher, a testament to the city’s unwavering pursuit of educational excellence.

In a strategic move, the KHDA has decided to forgo comprehensive inspections during the forthcoming 2024-25 academic year for private schools in Dubai, allowing the current ratings to stand until the next evaluation cycle.

The 23 Dubai schools earning the prestigious ‘Outstanding’ distinction this year are:

  • Kings School Dubai
  • Victory Heights Primary School
  • Dubai British School Jumeirah Park
  • Dubai British School
  • Jumeirah English Speaking School
  • Safa Community School
  • Nord Anglia International School

These institutions have exceeded expectations across various domains, including student achievement, leadership, curriculum design, inclusivity, and community engagement.

The ‘Outstanding’ rating serves as a well-deserved recognition of their tireless efforts in shaping the minds of tomorrow’s leaders.

As Dubai continues to solidify its position as a global education hub, the KHDA’s rigorous inspection process remains instrumental in maintaining the highest standards of teaching and learning. The commitment of these exemplary schools to nurturing well-rounded individuals poised for success in an ever-evolving world is truly commendable.
