A new CBSE based private school has opened in Dubai, although has yet to host a single student at its new campus in Hor Al Anz. Teachers are, instead, providing lessons to its students through the school’s distance learning platform.

The Pearl Wisdom School is open to students from KG to Grade 5 in its first year of operation, and has annual fees ranging from AED 14,500 to AED 16,500. The school has a capacity of 2,400 places.

Mohammed Darwish, Chief Executive Officer of Permits and Compliance Sector at Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) noted that "even at this unique time, we continue to welcome new schools and create more choices for families in Dubai... The new school provides parents with affordable education options and builds on our commitment to create greater capacity across curriculums and different price points.”

Sooraj Ramachandran, Vice Chairman of Bhavans said, “When we opened our school, it was an entirely new experience where both the teachers and students had to connect virtually. This was a big challenge as none of our teachers have met each other yet. The parent community at our school has been extremely supportive and we have been transparent at all times.” 

The school has hosted virtual parent-teacher orientation sessions, student council activities, virtual assemblies and online lessons for its founding batch of students.

“We are one of the very few schools in the world that has opened during a global pandemic. This is a challenge that we’ve turned into an opportunity,” said Mr Ramachandran.

When the school can open its physical gates, it new students will have access to curated learning spaces that include creative play areas, nature zones, "and other facilities...". will feature a full review as soon as possible. 

Dubai has added 30 new schools over the last three years, creating over 24,000 additional new seats. Enrolment in Dubai private schools saw an increase of 2.1 per cent last year, according to Dubai regulator, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).
