If a school has been subjected to an inspection, then you will find the latest report here. In Dubai schools are subject to annual inspections, while in Abu Dhabi schools are on a rotation and are inspected approximately every other year. Note: we advise you read this article first. It provides invaluable insights as to what to look for, and how to 'read' each school review so you can weigh its value and insights for your child.

A solid choice if you cannot get your kids into The American School of Dubai or Dubai American Academy. Probably the best of the second-tier top American schools in Dubai.
