Top 19 Affordable Indian Curriculum All-Through UAE Schools by Rating, Fees

by Lis ONealMarch 7, 2018
Traditionally, Indian curriculum schools in the UAE have been among the most affordable.  They have also been the most in demand, with parents having to take part in lotteries and apply to multiple schools in the hope of finding that cherished seat.  With the addition of more schools in recent years, parents have more choice but not necessarily at the low level of fees of many of the established schools.  Educating your children from the age of 3 or 4 to 18 years of age is a huge financial commitment for most parents.  It is all too easy to choose a school when children are young, without necessarily considering the long-term costs involved. has researched the options that we believe provide proven quality at fees that are more affordable (the highest being 37,000 AED for the final grade/year, but with many at considerably less). Our list of the Top 19 affordable Indian curriculum (all-through) schools is based on ADEK/KHDA ratings of Good or above, since this is the minimum rating the regulators expect schools to achieve. The schools all offer education from KG to grade 12 unless still maturing to full provision.

Where schools are located in emirates that have not yet rolled out the Unified Inspection process, we have based their inclusion on the reputation of the owners or the personal knowledge of the or teams. Click on the school names for the full reviews.
