Acceptable Rated UAE Schools

Acceptable is the very minimum level a school should attain before it is considered, in some sense, failing. The KHDA, Dubai's education regulator has actually stipulated its Good rating as the minimum attainment level it would hope for for a school. Clearly this is not a school that will be firing on all cylinders, and is likely to have some serious weaknesses, although what these may vary considerably across Acceptable rated schools.

Notes:
We would always advise you to read the detail as to why a school has achieved a specific rating. There may be criteria that the KHDA or ADEC feel are important that you may not.

For the 2015/16 inspection reports, Abu Dhabi and Dubai moved to a unified six point rating: Outstanding, Very Good, Good, Acceptable, Weak and Very Weak.
