Growth, strength and possibility have long been hallmarks of Dubai’s private school sector. In the year of Expo, this is no exception. Since the start of the last academic year in September 2020, enrolment at Dubai’s private schools has grown by 3.5% - nearly 10,000 students.
This first of three infographics on private education in Dubai focuses on schools. It contains cross-referenced data designed to give you greater insights into this dynamic sector, including the proportion of studentms who pay a specific range of tuition fees, the number of schools in certain locations, and – surprise! - the number of students named Rashid and Latifa.
