My little one is at JESS Jumeirah (I don't feel too hated) and loves it.

Know someone with kids at Kings who is very happy with it.

Can't help with Repton, no idea.

School run in a morning is a consideration, are they all easy to get to?

JESS would be the safe bet given that's it's been around so long, is non-profit (the other two aren't), and if you want a spot at Dubai College then JESS should improve your chances. But if you don't want to change schools before you go to university then Repton could do the trick. I don't know about Kings, probably clsoe enough to being on a par with JESS, and they're opening a senior school or K-12 this year.

To be honest though, I think you'd find any one of them good enough. Might be more relevant to look at location, fees, and whether you want primary or K-12 and then decide.

JESS Arabian Ranches has a secondary school, and JESS Jumeirah does feed into the AR secondary school as well.

Hi hope you don't mind me asking. But did you register at these schools a long time pior to arriving in Dubai. We are moving out to Dubai in two months, but husband is out there already trying to find school places and the whole thing he tells me is a nightmare. These are the three schools we have been looking at, but told there are long waiting lists.

Any advice ???
