Why was schoolfinder.ae launched?

Schoolfinder.ae was launched by parents, who saw the need for a comprehensive, easy to use school search website. Schoolfinder.ae answers the fundamental question. Does the school I am researching have places available? It also provides schools with the opportunity to list all their vital information in one place. Our writers produce expertly written articles for parents.

How can Schoolfinder.ae help parents find the right school for their child?

*Search for schools in the UAE by Name, Emirate, School Stage, curriculum and the all important    enrolment status, among others. What’s even better is that parents can see the number of places available once it is uploaded by the school.

*Clear and easy to navigate website

*Log in and save schools as favourites for further consideration

*Get in touch with the school from within schoolfinder.ae, no need to go anywhere else.


How many schools are there on schoolfinder.ae?

We currently have over 98% of the private schools listed on the site and more is being added daily


Why is the information on the schools’ profile not complete?

Schoolfinder.ae has been recently launched and has listed some basic information on nearly all private schools in the UAE, it is now up to the schools to upgrade their profile and add all their information. We have account managers who are working hard to ensure that all schools update their information on a regular basis.


Why does a school say Not Rated?

Not Rated means, that the school has not yet been inspected or some schools choose not to publish their results. Unlike Dubai and Abu Dhabi where KHDA and ADEC make the results of inspections public other emirates do not yet have a system for releasing inspection results.


Do you charge the schools a fee to update their profile?

We charge schools a low annual fee to update their profiles. This gives schools unlimited access to schoolfinder.ae to keep their profiles updated and list school events.


What are the official sources of data for schoolfinder.ae?

We get our information from KHDA Dubai, ADEC Abu Dhabi and The UAE Ministry of Education. We primarily depend on schools to sign up and update their profiles.


How often are schools inspected in the UAE?

Schools in Dubai are inspected annually, schools in Abu Dhabi are inspected once every two years while schools in the Northern Emirates are inspected once every three years.


Why can I not see examination results on schoolfinder.ae?

Schools will publish examination results on their respective websites. They may only mention the major successes in their school overview on schoolfinder.ae.


How do I use schoolfinder.ae to help me find a school?

We recommend that parents use all the data published on schoolfinder.ae as a good starting point before carrying our more detailed research.


Do you conduct school reviews?

The UAE has very strict media laws, as such we at schoolfinder.ae do not see much value in charging schools to write a review which cannot be objective. It is better for schools to speak about themselves via their schoolfinder.ae profiles and for parents to do their research and make a decision based on the facts.
