We have applied to all 3 schools mentioned by you, but somehow JPS does not guarantee assessments and they haven't got back to us yet. Once you have the offer, you have to pay a deposit within few days, which is usually AED 5000 for most schools but for whatever reasons it's nearly double for Horizon.

We live in Jumeirah Park, so choosing DESS would definitely require us to move. The location and commute is my only concern of choosing this school. Moving nearby DESS if we like villa style living, I guess that would be down to Jumeirah 2 or 1...

Yes, state schools educate in Arabic mostly, and the curriculum is unlikely to be recognised for anything much outside the UAE. Many UAE parents send their children to private schools so they learn in English and get a more international education.

Latifa and Rashid schools are government run, in English, and offer UK qualifications. But you'd have to be an influential Emirati or a teacher at the school to have any chance of getting your children enrolled.
