Welcome to ‘Schools in Dubai’. If you’re looking for a good school in Dubai, here’s the place to start. Whether you’re planning a move to Dubai or whether you live here already and still haven’t found the right school, this is the guide that will help you in your search. Parent comments, school facts, expert tips, curriculum information, ratings, it’s all here. Schools in Dubai is a reference site – one that we created to help you find quick information on the leading schools in Dubai for expats.
‘Schools in Dubai’ has two main sections – information on the schools and a section called Insights (see top navigation bar). The Insights is a collection of useful information, articles that we like, tips, tricks, problems shared, and opinions aired. We were keen to create a platform for people to discuss their point-of-view, air and share their opinions, and gather insight.
This site is really about expat focused schools. We’ve also focused on some of the most ‘searched’ for schools in Dubai on Search Engines like Google and ones that talked about most in Dubai expat forums.
Please assist us, and your fellow parents and the education community by leaving your valuable and relevant comments as feedback (you can on every page) on the schools in Dubai. Before you scroll down to the individual schools in the ‘pull-down’ menus, take a minute to find out more about the different types (curriculums) of schools in the ‘Main Menu’ such as American, British, IB &Other, and Indian school systems.
