When we first started researching schools in Dubai we discovered that there is a huge choice but that the choice is limited because nearly all schools are over-subscribed. The waiting lists were endless. The good news is that there are a number of new schools which have been built or are currently being built with completion due by September 2015.
The decision to move your family to Dubai is littered with a few problems but forewarned is definitely fore-armed! We asked a few educational experts to help you on your way. The biggest problems we found were resolved relatively easily and included:
My children are moving abroad for the first time. Is there anything I can do to help them?
How do I choose the right curriculum for my children?
How can I check if the school is properly licensed and registered in Dubai?
What is KHDA?
Where can I find reports about Dubai schools?
What languages do they teach at the school?
How do I organise my children’s visas?
Are the teachers fully qualified?
What is the health and safety record of the school?
How do I organise school transport for my children?
Where can I buy the school uniform?
In fact we could go on and on.
We’ll add lots of questions to the list and each will be linked with its own guide. This, we hope, will make life easier for everyone.
