Since the start of the last academic year, Dubai private schools have added approximately 10,000 pupils, representing a 3.5% rise in enrolment. Dubai now has 215 private schools, 21 of which were opened in the past three years, according to new infographics issued by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).
The infographics present crucial information on each phase of Dubai’s private education sector and were created to provide investors, operators, educators, and parents with a better understanding of the industry as a whole.

Dr Abdulla Al Karam, director-general of KHDA, said that growth, strength and possibility have long been hallmarks of Dubai’s private school sector, commenting: “The growth in student enrolment shows the confidence that parents have in the ability of Dubai schools to provide high-quality education in all circumstances. The sustained development of the emirate’s school sector reflects the energy, resilience and dynamism that Dubai has been able to maintain. Consistent with the Expo 2020 theme of opportunity, our education sector continues to offer families and investors new possibilities.”
The report also noted almost half of all teachers in Dubai were under 40, with India, the UK and Egypt making up the top three nationalities.
