9th= Place - Cambridge High School, Abu Dhabi
Your rating: 3.8/5

One of the most popular schools in Abu Dhabi, and one of its highest performers (the school is currently ranked A3 (Good) by ADEC, the emirate's education authority), Cambridge High School is a K-12 school currently serving almost 2000 students, and following a UK based curriculum - from EYFS to IGCSE to A' Levels.

It is not surprising why Cambridge makes it to the list. Standards at IGCSE, AS and A level are said to be “significantly above [the] best international standards”. This is a school that serves its students well, reciprocated by their enthusiasm and levels of engagement. According to inspectors, students “show a zeal for learning and for service that are remarkable”... The children fully “exploit to the full everything their teachers give to them and find great satisfaction in helping to run the school.”

In your user ratings the school is rated highest for academic performance, but in truth Cambridge scores pretty consistently, and highly, across the board.
