Emirates International Schools question the credibility of the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau’s report

( DUBAI, UAE - Results of the recently-published Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau’s (DSIB) report are severely flawed according to the internationally-accredited Emirates International Schools (EIS), who are calling for an alternative assessment to be conducted by an internationally-acclaimed and independent third-party organization.

A recent assessment conducted by the DSIB at various schools across the Emirate has classified the internationally-recognized EIS as an “acceptable” organization; an evaluation which is inaccurate and incomprehensive.

Established less than a year ago, the DSIB lacks the experience to extensively assess the schools in Dubai. It bases its framework on international best practices, yet is not backed up by the expertise of renowned international assessment bodies that have broad experience in developing assessment frameworks.

“The DSIB is a newly-established organization and is evaluating schools that have been established in the UAE for more than eighteen years and have succeeded in educating generations of youth, among which [many] have become pioneers in their work field at this day and age. Rating EIS as acceptable is undoubtedly an erroneous assessment,” stated Mr. Mohammed Al Mazrooei – director of operations.

EIS rigorously adheres to all international standards of all three accrediting bodies of which it is a member: the IB World School, Edexcel, and the International Primary Curriculum. Accordingly, Mr. Mohammed Al Mazrooei added, “When a local entity such as DSIB that merely bases its assessment criteria on international best practices, measures the performance of EIS – a school that applies rigorous teaching structures as per the international organizations it is a member of – [it] leads one to doubt the credibility of such an assessment.”

The report results contradict the general public opinion of schools in Dubai, an opinion which was formulated as a result of years of first-hand experience. Gaining a reputation as a trustworthy assessor of education in the country, the DSIB is required to provide unbiased, reasonable, and accurate information to all parties - variables which the DSIB has thus far failed to achieve.

Bringing world-class education standards into the Emirates, EIS was one of the first schools in the UAE to introduce the International Baccalaureate program. In continuing to strive with its primary goal, EIS invites the Knowledge&Human Development Authority to commission internationally-acclaimed assessment organizations that are capable of issuing a comprehensive report highlighting performance analysis of all education entities in the Emirate.

In parallel, the Emirates International Schools board has decided to commission an internationally-independent acclaimed assessment organization to assess the two Emirates International Schools in Dubai. Once the comprehensive report highlighting performance analysis is ready, the same will be announced to the public.
