The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) produced and hosts an online resource that provides information on fees for private schools beginning in April and has recently been updated to include prices for schools beginning in September. Fees, scholarships, reductions, and other non-compulsory fees for all 180 private schools in Dubai are now included in the database.
Transportation, extracurricular activities, books, and school field excursions are all included in the expense information sheet. Parents will have access to information such as location, contact information, curriculum type, and the overall DSIB (Dubai School Inspections Bureau) rating through the same resource.

You can compare over 200 Dubai private schools directly on the School Fees Fact Sheet, and filter by location, grade, and curriculum to suit your needs. Each fact sheet lists the normal tuition prices as well as necessary payments for resources like books and medical care, as well as additional service fees for transportation, field trips, and after-school activities. The online resource previously only featured fees for schools that began their academic year in April, but it will soon include the same information for schools that start in September.
“The School Fees Fact Sheet will be now available every academic year for all private schools in Dubai. The Fact Sheet not only gives parents accurate and up-to-date information on all the fees they could be expected to pay, it also enables parents and schools to better focus on children’s learning,” said Dr Abdulla Al Karam, Director-General of KHDA.
