The Ministry of Education of the United Arab Emirates is responsible for accreditation of schools. The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) was established in 2006 to develop education and human resource sectors in Dubai, and license educational institutes.
Primary and secondary education is free of cost for all Emiratis and compulsory for boys and girls from age 5 until 15. Upon graduating from secondary school, students are awarded with either a Secondary School Leaving Certificate or Technical Secondary Diploma.
Most schools offer both primary and secondary instruction so students do not need to transfer to a separate school location upon graduating from primary school.
American curriculum runs from Kindergarten to Grade 8. British curriculum runs from Year 1 to Year 9. Most of the secondary schools require students to take standardized tests such as Advanced Placement, SAT, IB Diploma, IGCSE, GCE Advanced level or CBSE.
