The question that usually follows, "How should I choose a school?", is "What is the best school in the UAE?" This is a trick question, because there is no one best school. There are many factors that need to be considered when deciding on a school. To help us we’ve brought together leaders from four schools in the UAE to talk about the key issues that you need to think about before choosing a school.
Representing a range of primary and secondary, British, US and IB schools, our panel of experts includes:
• Rachel Cashin, Principal at Smart Vision School
• Dr Pablo Fetter, CEO at Capital School
• Elise Furr, Head of Secondary at Swiss International Scientific School
• Michaela Barber, Vice Principal at Repton School Dubai
Together, they will explore:
• How important is the curriculum in choosing a school?
• What should early years parents be looking for?
• There’s a big differential in price in the UAE’s schools. But should the cost of education play a role in decision making?
• What are the advantages, and disadvantages of an all-through school?
• How important is the school tour?
• How important is it to look at IGCSE, IB, A Level results?
• What should you be looking for in terms of schools community.
