Top IB Schools in the UAE 2023

This table lists the Best IB Schools in the UAE based on their academic success in terms of average points for the IB Diploma Programme for 2023.

We try to obtain most of the IBDP results of the larger international schools with IBDP cohorts of 20 or more. Some of the smaller or lower ranked schools have declined to publish results. This is partly to do with the rapid development of education in the UAE with numerous schools having been formed in the last 5 years. Nevertheless we believe that any school omissions have not impacted the top schools in this table..

Education Advisers specialise in offering impartial advice and assistance on school placements, working with a number of schools both in the UK and worldwide. If you would like to discuss how we can help with boarding school placements, please complete an enquiry form.
