ABU DHABI: The Abu Dhabi Education Council has banned private schools whose educational performance was evaluated as weak from enrolling new students until their level is improved.
 
None of the Abu Dhabi's private schools that follow the Ministry of Education curriculum were able to get more than "good" rate from education inspectors.
 
Only two schools in the Abu Dhabi were rated "good": the Rosary School and the Al Dhabianiah School.
The other schools in Al Dhafra, Al Ain and Abu Dhabi were rated (pass-weak and very weak). At least four schools were rated very weak. Those schools should improve their performance, otherwise they will be suspended.
 
A total of 12 schools were rated "weak."
 
Some of these assessments date back to 2016, which means that the schools are expected to be rated higher in the new round of inspections of the Department of Education and Knowledge.
 
There are 196 private schools in Abu Dhabi, including 7 new, which began operation this academic year. Only three schools were rated excellent by the Abu Dhabi Education Council, while 13 schools were rated "very good" and 42 were rated "good". They do not follow the Ministry of Education curricula.
 
Most of the private schools in Abu Dhabi opened admission and enrollment earlier this month to both national and expatriate students.
 
Some schools have confirmed that they will continue to open admission and allow children to register until the end of the current school year, including new schools, and schools that have shifted to their renewed buildings.
 
Some schools have announced discount rewards in fees for distinguished students.
