Depends, try Jumeriah Primary School or Jumeriah College - both Gems schools, so basically they're ****. However they're better than most in Dubai - unless you can get junior into Dubai College or JESS - the best schools in Dubai.

And no (this is NOT directed at the OP, but at viewers in general), i don't want to get into an argument. DC and JESS are the best 2. Bar none.

JESS and DC are run as not for profit operations, in other words they put their profit back into the school.

Pretty much every other is their to make the owners rich - GEMS schools being some of the worst. But then Sunni (GEMS owner) gave some AED100million to Dubai cares the other year. Pity he doesn't pay his staff a little better.
