Sharing her thoughts on the same, Fiona McKenzie, Head of Education, Carfax Education, said: “This index is the go-to for parents looking for the very best education for their child, wherever they are in the world. In this year’s index we have chosen to increase the Middle East category from 10 to 15, reflecting the high calibre of schools across the region. Families from around the globe are increasingly choosing to educate their children here in the UAE, recognising the top-quality education available to them. We expect to see continued demand for schools in this region, and particularly the UAE, with four new schools opening in Dubai this year and other new schools establishing their credentials in this dynamic education landscape.”
