7 out of 10 students in Dubai's Indian schools get 'good' education


Of the 32 Indian schools inspected by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority, four have shown improved ranking.

The Ambassador School, GEMS New Millennium School, JSS Private School and JSS International School went from 'good' to 'very good'.

The KHDA made the big reveal through a series of tweets on their official handle.

"Seven out of 10 students at Dubai's Indian-curriculum schools now receive good or better quality education. This reflects our commitment to continue providing high-quality education choices that are in line with Dubai's expectations," highlighted Dr Abdulla Al Karam, director-general of the KHDA.

"With more than 79,000 students enrolled in Dubai's Indian-curriculum schools, we have seen a remarkable 34 per cent growth in student numbers in the last decade. These positive trends coupled with year-on-year progress build on the confidence in Dubai's private education sector."

The only school to maintain the 'Outstanding' ranking for the ninth year in a row is GEMS Modern Academy.

Nine schools were rated 'very good', 11 'good', 10 'acceptable' and one 'weak'.

None of the Indian schools were rated 'very weak'.

Two schools offering Pakistani curriculum serving 2,724 students were rated ‘acceptable and ‘weak’ during the latest inspection cycle.

"This is the eleventh year we have inspected Indian and Pakistani curriculum schools and we are continuing to see progress in overall school ratings. Indian-curriculum schools showed improvements in learning skills, science and governance," said Fatma Ibrahim Belrehif, CEO of Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau (DSIB).
