Very Good Rated UAE Schools

Make no mistake these will all be very, very good schools, falling just outside the top tier of UAE schools according to the country's inspectors. Currently, only Dubai and Abu Dhabi have a formal inspection process, so while there will be "Outstanding" schools in Sharjah, or Fujairah, here we detail only schools from Dubai and Abu Dhabi where there has been a rating from a government based inspection team.

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.
