Number of private schools in Dubai 2012-2013 (KHDA data)
  • 148 private schools in Dubai.
  • 207,118 students registered in private schools in Dubai.
  • 88% - proportion of all school students in Dubai who attend private schools.
  • According to an Oxford Business Group (OBG) report 20 Nov 2013:
    • UAE nationals made up 56% of the private school student population, up from 34% in 2002.
    • Utilisation rate (ratio of students to number of available places) was 90% overall in 2012, 93.4% in primary schools and 81.6% in high schools. Highest rate was 94% for UK and Indian curriculum schools. So now you know why it's difficult to get a place in a Dubai school.

Schools references for Dubai but located somewhere else

  • Al Ahliyyah School Dubai - reference to Al Ahlia Private Schools group in Sharjah? Also one in Ajman, and one in Abu Dhabi. No private Al Ahlia or Al Alia etc schools in Dubai.

He is (was) the UAE Minister of Finance, Deputy Ruler of Dubai; and is the brother of Sheikh Mohammed, the ruler of Dubai.
