Dubai Schools Inititive to Open Two Afforable Private Schools

Under ‘Dubai Schools’ Initiative, which was announced by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai, on Monday, Dubai government will open two new affordable private schools.

Located in Mirdif and Al Barsha, the schools will follow the American curriculum but will focus on Arabic literacy, science and technology, the UAE’s culture and Islamic studies.

On the other hand, the first cohort of pupils is expected to arrive on August 29.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed launched the "Dubai Schools" project as an innovative educational model in partnership between the public and private sectors.

The Knowledge and Human Development Authority will regulate the schools and Taleem, one UAE’s top education providers, will operate them.

Emirati children will be given priority and can apply for a 100 per cent scholarship based on merit. While Fees will vary from Dh29,900 ($8,140) for kindergarten pupils to Dh36,155 for fourth-graders.

The schools will be able to accommodate 800 children, however, 400 families expressed their interest.
