Abu Dhabi School Inspection Ratings, In Full!

Following the transfer to the TAMM website of all data for private schools in Abu Dhabi, compiling the complete list of inspection results has been something of a challenge... But we have finally made our way through, and here for you is an easy to access, and complete list, of Abu Dhabi schools, with their inspection results!
Abu Dhabi School Inspection Ratings, In Full!

WhichSchoolAdvisor's annual school survey.

In the mid 2019, the complete list of Abu Dhabi schools, together with their inspection results and reports, previously published on the ADEK website, started to be transferred to the new Abu Dhabi Government website, TAMM. As a result, none of the results of the 2018-19 inspections were published during the school year, and only started to appear on TAMM after the start of the 2019-20 academic year.  No official announcements were made, and none of the usual press information was provided.

It's taken us at WhichSchoolAdvisor.com a little longer than planned, but finally, we can publish the most up-to-date list available.  The vast majority of schools rated Good and above offering international curricula, including US, British, Indian and IB, are reviewed on our site. Although the listing includes all schools, we do not generally review schools following the MOE curriculum.

WSA reviews are independent and objective, and include detailed analysis of the inspection results as well as access to the inspection reports.

With the current Covid-19 situation affecting so many families in different ways, be that financially or as a result of distance learning, now is the time to consider alternative schooling options for September and beyond.

To find out how your current school fared, or to seek alternatives by rating, curriculum or fees, check out the complete list below. 

Since Abu Dhabi schools are generally inspected only every two years, the listings are for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years with a few exceptions.  A few schools have already published and provided WhichSchoolAdvisor.com with their 2019-20 results and inspection reports - they are marked with *.  These are not yet available on the TAMM website.
