Dubai continues to develop the strong foundations upon which to build a knowledge-based economy. The emirate has built a unique education system to fit its population’s needs by harnessing the capacity of the private sector, while also continuing to develop a more sophisticated regulatory framework to ensure every school is delivering quality education. Enrolment in private schools has grown by an average annual rate of 7.3% over the past 10 years, with 34 new schools opening in the past five years. Growth has been strong and steady, and if projections are correct, there will be a need for continued investments in the development of new schools and the expansion of existing ones in the near and medium term.
