Greenfield Community School, Green Community, Dubai Investments Park

It is worth stating upfront that we think that there are many things that make Greenfield Community School special in the UAE. We also believe that parents should not be diverted from the many exceptional features of the school by the headline grading of the latest KHDA inspection, although there are issues raised which we will address. For a genuinely inclusive, all-through International Baccalaureate education, that can deliver for children of all abilities, we believe that Greenfield Community School sets a key benchmark for the sector.

What makes Greenfield so impressive can be summarised in the following key points:

This is a pioneering school in the delivery of the [...]

Emirates International School – Meadows

Updated December 2016

Emirates International School – Meadows [EISM], together with Emirates International School – Jumeirah [EISJ], together comprise the Emirates International School [EIS], although to all intents and purposes, notwithstanding their shared ownership by the Al Habtoor Group, they are separate schools with independent leadership. Our review of the Jumeirah campus can be found here and prospective parents will find significant supplementary information here on the shared framework of both schools.

What is striking about both schools, however, is their very broad similarity in both IB performance and Dubai school inspectorate evaluation. The [...]

GEMS American Academy Abu Dhabi, Khalifa A

GEMS American Academy Abu Dhabi suffered a steep 3 place fall in its rankings in the Abu Dhabi Education Authority (ADEC) inspection from a near perfect High performing” A2 grading in 2013 to a B5 “Satisfactory” score in 2014. The school has been undergoing rapid growth and the trade off perhaps has been that the school is over extended.

Notwithstanding this, the school is very well liked US-based curriculum school and, to some degree, an element of turbulence is to be expected given the growth in pupil and teacher numbers. GEMS American Academy Abu Dhabi has retained its reputation for offering its children a warm and caring educational environment for its 1600 students, the [...]
