Jumeirah English Speaking School (JESS Jumeirah)

Rating: Outstanding
Curriculum: UK
Fees: AED 39,030 to AED 80,848
School size: 700
Nationality of Students: UK

What we say: According to our parent survey, JESS Jumeirah is our current number one school for happy parents, and the 2016/17 KHDA inspectors rate it pretty highly too!

Our Survey says: JESS smashes all the previous parent survey records with 100 percent of parents saying they would recommend the school to others. Seventy five percent say their child feels, 'a tremendous sense of belonging,' while 99 percent say their child enjoys attending the school.

What the KHDA says: Overall, the responses were very positive. Parents and teachers were satisfied with the quality of education provided to their children. Almost all parents were pleased with the learning of their children and indicated that their children enjoyed their experience at school.

Parents enjoyed and highly appreciated the extensive opportunities for them to be involved in many of the school’s aspects and events.

Thirty volunteer parents in classrooms helped with reading programmes and trips. The school followed an ‘open door’ policy where the headteacher was easily accessible to all parents and where their views were taken seriously.  

The effectiveness of the constant and purposeful communication between parents and the school enabled both parties to efficiently support children in developing personally and academically. A wide range of formal and informal communication channels included the school’s web-based communicator.  

Detailed and very informative reports were sent to parents regularly. Parents indicated that these reports, in addition to the daily feedback either orally or via the students’ dairy, provided a clear view on their children’s progress academically and in personal development
