1st = Place, Pristine Private School

Your rating: 4.4/5

This 23 year old school has built an incredibly strong community, recognized in its KHDA report, and is a school going from strength to strength in its inspection results. Nothing builds good will - and stakeholder satisfaction - as momentum in the right direction.

Pristine Private School was also a finalist in the Happiest School in the UAE video competition.

The school, strong with Pakistani and Philippine families, records Outstanding progress and attainment in English and Science in the secondary phase of the school. Elsewhere there is consistently Good progress and Attainment in maths, English and Science (save in the Post-16 phase where maths is rated only Acceptable).

The school has done consistently well so far in feedback to WhichSchoolAdvisor. Parents would recommend the school, and are happy with attainment academically and with their interaction with the school. In your user ratings, you score it very, very highly for the quality of its teaching.

Feedback to the KHDA mirrors our findings with parents largely satisfied with the quality of education. They state their children enjoy school, make good or better progress in English, are treated fairly in school, and are educated in a safe environment. However, the school has areas of weakness - notably in Islamic Studies and Arabic provision.

Parents also appreciate the school's performance bench marked against its fees. These are relatively highly affordable, ranging from 8,500 AED to just under 16,000 AED per year depending on Grade.
