Dubai’s Private Schools See Highest-Ever Enrolment Growth

Dubai is an amazing place to live for you and your little ones. And the latest figures appear to prove just that – because Dubai’s private schools have recorded the highest-ever increase in enrolment growth.

The total number of students attending Dubai private schools is now more than 365,000 – an increase of 12 percent, or more than 39,000 additional students.

The rate of growth is the highest we’ve ever seen, since the establishment of the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) in 2007.

Dubai currently has 220 private schools, educating more than 180 different nationalities. What’s more, at least 75 percent of all students here receive an education that’s rated good or better by the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau.

It comes as Dubai positions itself as one of the world’s top global cities, with families all over the planet relocating to the city.

Dr Abdulla Al Karam, Director-General of KHDA, said: “Our city is not just experiencing growth; it is creating growth. An ambitious city is a magnet for ambitious people, and Dubai continues to welcome a record number of families and teachers each year.

“Schools in Dubai prioritise quality, wellbeing and inclusion, while offering diversity in their curricula, locations and demographics. This combination offers teachers unforgettable career experiences and promises parents that their children will receive an education unlike any other in the world.”
