 The 3rd Most Viewed Dubai School in 2016...  


Name: The Indian High School 

KHDA Rating: Outstanding

Ages: 11 to 18

Curriculum: Indian/CBSE

Fee Range: Dhs 4,921 to Dhs 9,321

Location: Oud Metha

The Buzz: This 55 year-old, not-for-profit school is an institution- offering the KHDA's highest rating at the city's most affordable prices. However, this does mean seats are extremely tough to find, and, in the past, the associated junior school has seen queues over a kilometre long- just to collect a lottery ticket for a place.

This year, the Secondary outperformed the Middle School with almost every indicator rated Outstanding, even the Arabic Language and Islamic Education were considered Good.
