The Dubai School Inspection Bureau (DSIB) of KHDA was established by Decision 38 of the Executive Council of the Government of Dubai in 2007.
School inspections have provided a common language for the community to talk about education quality.
DSIB provides comprehensive information on the standard of private school education in Dubai, which helps to inform improvement planning at school and policy level. This is achieved through a number of approaches, including annual school inspections, parents meetings and focus groups, teachers, parents and students surveys.
Having a view of the standard and quality of education provided throughout Dubai is critical for everyone concerned with education. DSIB provides an inspection service which gives independent, comprehensive assessment of educational standards and school performance for every private school in Dubai.
The standards have been developed and are regularly revised in cooperation with educational practitioners across the diverse curricula represented in Dubai.
Through inspections and the participation of schools in international assessments, DSIB provides KHDA, the Government of Dubai and the wider public with an accurate and detailed view of the quality of school education in Dubai in relation to the educationally best-performing countries in the world.
British Schools Overseas inspections for schools in Dubai
Schools in Dubai offering the National Curriculum of England and Wales can now apply to participate in British Schools Overseas inspections. Parents who send their children to BSO-inspected schools can be sure that the quality of education their children receive is equivalent to that of an independent school in the UK. If you are considering the British curriculum for your child, please ask the school whether they are BSO-certified.
