Following a six-year ‘outstanding’ streak, Indian High School has this year slid to ‘very good’.

This leaves only one outstanding Indian school for this year — GEMS Modern Academy — rated so for seven years in a row.

The inspections — now in their ninth cycle — are carried out by the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau (DSIB) of the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), the education regulator in Dubai.
