Notes about this directory and list of Dubai schools
  • To add a school in Dubai to this list, start a new topic in the Dubai schools forum. Or send details to education at dubaifaqs dot com.
  • School name does not always indicate curriculum or predominant student nationality e.g. some "American" schools follow a UAE or other national curriculum.
  • Sort by tel number to group schools in the same geographical area (first 2 or 3 digits after country and city code indicate area).
  • List of special needs centers in Dubai includes mostly private schools, centers, and support groups that cater to special needs students (for example Asperger's Syndrome, Autistic children, Autism, Down's Syndrome, physical and/or other mentally challenged students). List includes dedicated institutions and also mainstream schools that might accept special needs students (but check with the school directly and please tell us if we've made an error with this list). Some mainstream schools in Dubai not on this list might also consider mild cases of special needs children, especially if additional support is not needed from the school.
New special needs schools and centers in Dubai
  • Autism Trust Foundation Dubai school center (ATF) - reported 08 December 2013. Unknown if the ATF school is the same as or related to the already existing Autism Center in Dubai, or the planned Emirates International Autism Centre (EIAC) also in Dubai.
  • The Oasis School in Dubai (open Sep 2012 or 2013) was in this list of special needs schools since according to their curriculum information, they "... cater to mainstream and special needs students ...", however, an email from the school (Feb 2014) said they are a mainstream school, not a special needs school, and requested removal from the above list. TOS or OSD was the Universal Academy of Excellence renamed, and the academy was a new school opened in September 2012 to take the place of the British Insitute of Learning Development (BILD) which had closed. School removed from list for the time being until we figure out whether or not it should be included.
