Best Schools In the UAE. You Decide. School Leaders Reveal All. TV Special. Part Five.
Best Schools in the UAE? YOU Decide.
In the fifth of our major new series of video interviews with school leaders across the UAE, exclusively from SchoolsCompared.comTVTM , we get to the bottom of the questions you should be asking schools to separate the wheat from the chaff. The single lesson? The best school for your child will be a different school for another – and asking the right questions is the only bullet proof way to ensure your children get the best possible education.
In the following weeks we aim to build a definitive picture – from those who are running our schools – of all the questions parents should be asking – and the answers you should be looking for to ensure you make the right decision. Together with top tips and insider secrets from those in a position to know best, we aim to provide parents with the definitive guide to choosing the right schools in the UAE – for their child.
As more and more parents are now seeking to move schools, we have aimed to get the information that will help these parents, as well as those arriving in the UAE and seeking a school for the first time.
We are releasing these guides in blocks of three video interviews. By the end of the series we aim to have covered the broadest possible range of school types, from premium Tier Ones to value schools – and across different curricular or specialism.
In this Guide we speak with:
- Dubai English Speaking College (DESC)
- Dunecrest American School
- GEMS Wellington Al Khail
The Questions we Asked …
We asked schools the following questions:
- Can you describe your role and the leadership experience you bring to advising parents?
- What are the top 3 questions parents should ask schools when they visit?
- What are good answers to these questions?
- What really matters when parents are looking for the right school for their child?
- What is the single most important piece of advice you can give parents when deciding on the best schools for their children?
None of the school leaders we interviewed were made aware of how other school leaders answered these questions.
Top Schools in the UAE – School Leaders Reveal All. Part 5.
In Part 5 of this Guide, we ask another three school leaders to guide parents and reveal all about how they can interrogate schools to find out just how well each will really meet the needs, and deliver on the full potential, of their children.
