The KHDA, Dubai's education regulator, has announced that 10 Indian schools in Dubai have received a rating of ‘Very Good’ or better, four more than last year.

This year’s round of Dubai School Inspections saw 32 of 34 Indian curriculum schools receiving visits from the school inspectors. A little over 79,000 students are enrolled in Indian curriculum schools in the Emirate.

GEMS Modern Academy has retained its 'Outstanding' rating for the ninth successive year.  In an announcement on Twitter, the KHDA congratulated the school saying;

"Congratulations to the only outstanding Indian curriculum school in Dubai.  Your students have an excellent work ethic, they care for each other and they have a very positive approach to learning.  Well done". 

The picture is similarly positive for the four Indian schools who have improved their rating from Good to ‘Very Good’.  These are:

According to KHDA data, this means that 6,244 students attend Indian schools that have improved their rating.  For the second year, no schools declined in the overall performance judgements.  

Of the remaining schools, 11 were rated 'Good', 10 'Acceptable' and just one received the lowest possible rating, 'Weak'.

Speaking to Gulf News, Fatima Martin, Principal of GEMS New Millennium School – Al Khail (now a ‘Very Good’ school), said:

“We are delighted to be validated by the DSIB [Dubai School Inspection Bureau] as a ‘Very Good’ school. In 2015, in our very first DSIB inspections, we were rated as a ‘Good’ school. Now, thanks to steady year-on-year improvement, we have passed the next milestone in our school’s development.”

Ms Martin went on to add: “The concerted efforts of all staff at GEMS New Millennium School, to pursue excellence, have been instrumental in this achievement. At the heart of our school are the ‘GEMS Education Core Values’, as well as the UAE Vision 2021, laying the foundations for the highest educational standards, enabling us to focus on achieving the best possible outcomes for all our students. We are proud to see GEMS Education shine in this context, building on our unparalleled track record of providing quality education.”
