Inspections and Accreditations
As part of Taaleem’s strategy of continuous improvement and self-evaluation, Taaleem requires each school to pursue accreditation from an independent accreditation body of institutions and academic specialists.
Accreditation is the process used to ensure that schools meet and maintain international standards of quality and integrity regarding academics, administration and related services.
All Taaleem schools apply to become accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), and some of our schools also attain authorisation and accreditation from the International Baccalaureate (IB) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), all global leaders in this field.
Uptown School (UTS) is an authorised International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for the IB Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme. Uptown School is also a Regular Member of the European Council of International Schools (ECIS).
Dubai Schools' Inspection Bureau (DSIB)/KHDA
Every school in Dubai is regularly inspected by the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau (DSIB) on behalf of the Knowledge and Human Development Agency (KHDA). The DSIB is the Dubai equivalent of UK's OFSTED whereby schools have a rigorous inspection where key performance is noted.
The report includes a summary of overall performance, highlighting key strengths and recommendations, along with more detailed analysis of areas including progress and attainment, personal and social development, teaching and assessment, curriculum, school management and relationships with parents and the community.
