In keeping with the popularity and demand for quality education, 17 new international schools are opening in the UAE and are expected to begin operations for the academic year of 2018-2019. The UAE is the regional leader when it comes to the sheer number of international schools that provide excellent education to its students who are drawn from a pool of local and expat families.
The results of the latest research data from ISC Research have revealed the fact that UAE has a whopping 624 international schools, the highest in the region. This number was a significant improvement from last year when there were a total of 596 international schools in the country.
The data from the research study also led to the conclusion that the international school sector was rapidly expanding in the region and was oblivious to fluctuations in economic conditions. The opening of 17 new schools in UAE further testifies to the popularity of international schools. It emerged in the findings of the study that the number of international schools in the region in 2013 was 1159 and rapidly expanded to 1593 in 2018.
