Dubai has 158 private schools offering programmes to more than 243,000 students across 15 different types of curricula. Private schools cater to over 89% of the student population of Dubai and 57.4% of Emirati students choose to attend a private school. As well as different curricula, private schools also offer a wide variety of fee levels and an array of facilities to cater to different sections of society.
KHDA’s role is to ensure that Dubai’s private schools operate according to the highest quality standards, in line with our legislation. Our team ensures ongoing supervision of Dubai schools through regular inspections and international assessments. KHDA’s Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau (DSIB) carries out detailed inspections of every private school in Dubai and the Regulations and Permits Commission (RPC) is responsible for the licensing of schools and their adherence to regulations and guidelines.
