Positive News: UAE Schools Highly Recommended

WhichSchoolAdvisor's annual school survey.

Overall this must be considered the most positive statistic for schools in the UAE that comes out of the WSA School Survey: Over 6 in 10 of the parents surveyed would recommend the school their children go to other parents, with another 15% sitting in the middle - still undecided.

However, that still leaves a substantial group -  23% of parents - who would not recommend their children's school to other parents.

Abu Dhabi is the most positive emirate with 64% of respondents saying they would recommend their school, as opposed to 61% in Dubai and 58% in Sharjah.

The biggest differential in results, though, is found in the curricula of schools.

IB and British curricula schools have a much higher number of respondents who would recommend their school than their Indian or US curriculum counterparts. Some 70% of parents with children attending IB and/or British schools would recommend their schools, as opposed to just 49% and 43% of parents at Indian schools.

A clue as to one reason why this is may be found in who pays the school fees, more information on which may be found here...
