73% of Indian curriculum students in Dubai rated 'good' by KHDA

Policy Indications

According to the latest inspection report released by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) around 73% of Dubai’s Indian-curriculum students now study at schools rated ‘good’ or better. Indian schools in Dubai continue to show progress as four of them have improved their ratings this year though, only one school has been rated 'outstanding'.  A total of 32 Indian-curriculum schools were inspected this academic year. One was rated outstanding, nine very good, 11 good, 10 acceptable and one weak. None of the Indian curriculum schools were rated very weak. GEMS Modern Academy was rated 'outstanding' for the ninth year in a row.

"Seven out of 10 students at Dubai's Indian-curriculum schools now receive good or better quality education. This reflects our commitment to continue providing high-quality education choices that are in line with Dubai's expectations," Dr Abdulla Al Karam, director-general of the KHDA, said.

"With more than 79,000 students enrolled in Dubai's Indian-curriculum schools, we have seen a remarkable 34 per cent growth in student numbers in the last decade. These positive trends coupled with year-on-year progress build on the confidence in Dubai's private education sector."
