Located in Al Nahda, Dubai Carmel is a private school providing education for boys and girls from FS1 to Year 13
Founded in 1990, Dubai Carmel School (DCS), is a very small school by Dubai standards with just 555 students attending a school relatively popular among the Arab population - the predominant ethnicity. There are 20 Emirati students among their number - much lower than historically.
The school has 76 (mainly Egyptian) teachers and 18 teaching or support assistants. There are also six counsellors and a very low teacher to student ratio of under 1:10.
Inclusion is a core focus of the school, with some 10% of students with some form of additional learning need. Dubai Carmel School provides a caring environment for students with a range of specific learning difficulties, including autism and Down’s Syndrome. The school is held in high regard by parents and also by the KHDA's inspectors who have awarded the DCS a Good rating for its provision and outcomes for students of determination.
DCS follows the UK, Cambridge International Curriculum from primary level to secondary, when it offers both IGCSEs and then AS Levels to its students.
Dubai Carmel School has been rated Acceptable - the minimum requirement to enable schools to continue normal operations - again in the most recent inspection round. The overall rating does not reflect the steady improvements that are being made within the school.
If you would like to read the inspection report - and we strongly recommend that you do so in order to understand the reasons behind the overall rating and the inspectors' recommendations - you will find it here.
