1st= Pearl Primary (100%)
A WhichSchoolAdvisor.com Good School, and rated A2 by ADEC (its highest rating awarded) Aldar owned Pearl Primary is a very highly regarded British school in the capital.
The school is British in both its curriculum - and its student body. While the school’s population is drawn from 59 nationalities Emiratis (22%) and British (19%) students dominate.
Pearl Primary is noted for the progress its pupils make in English, Mathematics and Science, as well as the behaviour of its students. Teaching is “very good and often excellent” with teachers displaying an excellent subject knowledge, especially in English, Mathematics and Science. Leadership too is noted as outstanding.
Given such a high performing environment, it is little wonder its parents do little to conceal their appreciation of the school. In the most recommended we have ten schools that achieved a 100% recommendation - that is, every parent who responded to our survey from the school would recommend it to another parent.
It helps that while fees are top end for Abu Dhabi – just shy of 40,000 AED (as of 2013/14) across all grades – they are comparable with other leading primary schools in the capital, while parents know the school is delivering just that little bit more for their money than its peers.
