Dubai: Private school ratings by the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau, (DSIB), part of the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), are out.

A spokesperson of the education regulator told Gulf News that the ratings for all schools that have been inspected this academic year are now available.

“We hope the release of the overall ratings will support parents in making their re-enrollment decisions and help them plan for the next academic year. Detailed inspection reports and parent summary reports will be published once all schools have completed their inspections,” the spokesperson added.

Report on Indian school inspection results

As per the last report - on Indian school inspections results -  which has already been released, 15,000 or 83 per cent of students now attend Indian curriculum schools rated ‘Good’ or better, compared to 73 per cent during the 2022-23 academic year. A total of 32 Indian curriculum schools with 94,499 students enrolled were inspected this year.

While one Indian school was rated ‘Outstanding’, 10 were rated ‘Very Good’, 14 ‘Good’ and seven ‘Acceptable’.

Wellbeing was introduced as a key focus area during inspections last year. Twenty-nine or 91 per cent Indian curriculum schools were found to provide ‘Good’ or better wellbeing provisions.

Ratings of different curricula schools

Barring a few ratings which are still pending, the overall ratings covering schools of different curricula for the year 2023-24 are available. Depending on their performance, the schools have rated 'outstanding', 'very good', 'good', 'acceptable' or 'weak'.
