The same applies to the International Schools. According to the last report from ISC in 2018, Dubai is home to more than three hundred international schools, for students aged 3 to 18, from Early Years to High School. These International Schools follow different curricula. The most popular are International Baccalaureate (IB), British curriculum, American curriculum and Indian curriculum (CBSE and ICSE).
