Dubai has seen significant growth in its school education ecosystem. The 3 major curriculums that Dubai offers in its schools have gained much apprise across the world — UK curriculum schools are on the top of the chart (35%) which is followed by the Indian curriculum (26 %) and then US curriculum schools (16%) and International Baccalaureate(6%).

Dubai’s private schools made the record of highest-ever enrolment in the academic session 2023-24 along with other strides the school education landscape of Dubai is involved in. As per officials, the enrolment growth rate enters into double digits for the first time and marks a 12 percent increase and more than 39000 additional students enrolled in comparison to the previous year. This also marks a historic moment for KHDA (Knowledge and Human Development Authority), as these are the highest numbers since the establishment of KHDA in 2007.

On this occasion, Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, Director General of KHDA expressed his thoughts and said, “Our city is not just experiencing growth; it is creating growth. An ambitious city is a magnet for ambitious people, and Dubai continues to welcome a record number of families and teachers each year.”

“Schools in Dubai prioritise quality, well-being and inclusion while offering diversity in their curricula, locations and demographics. This combination offers teachers unforgettable career experiences and promises parents that their children will receive an education unlike any other in the world”, Dr. Abdulla added further.
