Outstanding Rated UAE Schools

The very top-tier of UAE schools according to the country's inspection teams. Currently, only Dubai and Abu Dhabi have a formal inspection process, so while there will be "Outstanding" schools in Sharjah, or Fujairah, they will not be listed here.

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.
