Register your child for a Dubai school

Criteria
• If possible, try to visit the UAE up to 6 month prior to your relocation to Dubai, so you can look around the schools and register well in advance.
• In some schools, students have to take an admission test prior to being offered a place.
• Many schools and colleges have online pupil registration forms where you can apply to register.
Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) website has a directory listing and guide for all government, private, special needs, day care centres, etc.
(Choose type of school & location from Directory).

From 2009 onwards, KHDA has school reports published on their website to provide a comprehensive review of the performance of each school in Dubai. The reports provide parents in Dubai with detailed information about school quality to help inform their choice regarding school selection. Inspectors evaluated school performance using a number of quality indicators. These were applied consistently across all schools in Dubai to give ratings from 'outstanding,' 'good', 'satisfactory 'to 'unacceptable'.
 
Fees
Fees vary from school to school. However, KHDA has a list of all schools with their fee structure for your easy reference.
 
Documents Required:
1. Application form from the school.
2. Copies of student and parent’s passports and Dubai visa pages.
3. 8 passport photos of the student.
4. Copies of student’s birth certificate.
5. School records of the last 2 years,
6. Immunization records and medical history
7. A transfer certificate from the student’s previous school.

Education system
• Many expatriate schools in Dubai are English speaking private schools. They have English, French and American curriculums as well as local and national curriculums.
• The school year is divided into 3 terms (autumn, spring and summer). The school day extends from 8am until 2pm or 3pm Sunday to Thursday.
