More than 326,000 students are currently enrolled in Dubai’s private schools.

That's an increase of 4.5 per cent since the end of the last academic year, according to the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).

As many as 94 new private schools were opened during the last 10 years, 21 of them in the past 3 years, while four new private schools entered service in the current academic year (2022-2023)

"The continued growth of this sector is testament to the world-class teaching and learning taking place every day; to the UAE’s and Dubai’s ability to continue to attract families to live and work; to transparent regulations; and to our community’s commitment to high-quality education. We’re grateful to school leaders, teachers, parents and students for their continued support of education in Dubai," said Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, Director General of the KHDA.
