2020 Dubai School Fees and KHDA Ratings. Every School. The Complete Guide. Exclusive.

by Jon WestleyAugust 4, 2020

Introduction – 2020 Dubai School Fees and KHDA Ratings. Every School. The Complete Guide. Exclusive.

In the following table we list the official fees for every school in Dubai together with their KHDA ratings for 2020. These are the KHDA agreed fees – worth noting that the majority of schools currently have discounts in place following Covid 19 and that the fees listed provide a guide to the “worse case” investment required. If your heart is set on any school, our advice is to contact the school and speak candidly about what you can afford and why you feel the school will be a good fit. Most schools are responsive to genuine enquiries from parents – and particularly where you can provide a strong case for your child joining the school.

You can see which schools have improved their ratings – and which schools are consistently ranked Good, Very Good or Outstanding, by comparing performance in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Parents can, in our view, expect from schools which have maintained a Very Good or Outstanding rating, or schools ranked Very Good or Outstanding, a world class standard of educational provision that competes with the best schools in the world.

We have ranked schools by their performance (outstanding schools first), and in each class of schools, alphabetically.

Good school status is the minimum expected standard for any school educating children in the UAE.

Any school ranked between Good and Outstanding may be the perfect school for an individual child. There is no such thing, ultimately, as the best school for every child.

Please note, some schools were not rated in 2020 following the impact of Covid 19.
