Dubai, Nov 30, 2023: About 83% of students now attend Indian curriculum schools rated ‘Good’ or ‘Better’ compared to 73% in 2022-23, as per inspection results released by Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). This equates to 15,000 students.  

A total of 32 Indian curriculum schools with 94,499 students enrolled were inspected this year.  

Four schools improved from ‘Acceptable’ to ‘Good’, and no schools declined in their ratings.  

One school was rated ‘Outstanding’, 10 were rated ‘Very Good’, 14 ‘Good’ and seven ‘Acceptable’ 

Commenting on the results, Dr Abdulla Al Karam, Director General of KHDA says, “Dubai has ambitious targets for the growth of its economy and population and high-quality education will be central to achieving these targets. Our vision is to transform Dubai into a global destination for education and this starts with every school and every classroom.”  

Well-being was introduced as a key focus area during inspections last year. Twenty-nine (91%) Indian curriculum schools provide ‘Good’ or ‘Better’ well-being provision.   

Fatma Belrehif, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau says, “As Dubai’s private schools sector has grown, so has the access to high quality education for families. This is indicated by the 83% of students in Indian curriculum schools rated ‘Good’ or ‘Better’ this year compared to 45% when inspections first started in 2009-10. . 

“The inspection reports are being published before the end of the second term for Indian curriculum schools to offer parents better and more timely access to the information they need to decide on the best school for their children.” 

Two schools offering the Pakistani curriculum were rated ‘Acceptable’.
