You’ll notice as you research schools they’ll have a rating assigned from the Knowledge and Human Development Authority, the Dubai government entity tasked with assessing schools. Ratings are Outstanding, Very Good, Acceptable, Weak or Very Weak. So, should you just be looking for an Outstanding school? Not necessarily. As each area of learning is assessed individually, it’s important to remember an aspect that’s a priority for you could have been assessed as outstanding, with assessments of other aspects – less of a priority for you – leading to a lower rating. You’ll find reports online on the KHDA website, or each school should be able to direct you to their report and rating.
