17 June 2006
  • Dubai English Speaking School (often referred to as DESS or DESS Dubai) is commonly regarded by many students, parents, and teachers as one of the best schools in Dubai for a western/British expat education.
  • Staff and students are mostly British.
  • DESS recently opened up a secondary school (Dubai English Speaking College - DESC) which will eventually have students up to Grade 12.
  • Unclear fee information from DESS dated 10 Jun 2006 says fee information is for 2005-2006. Update 18 Jun 2006 says fee information is for 2006-2007.
