WhichSchoolAdvisor announced that Hartland International School won the Top Schools Award for 'School Most Loved by Parents' in the United Arab Emirates 2023 – 2024, in association with EDSTATICA.
About the Award:
This is the Top Schools Award in which the voices of parents are recognized. This award is produced in association with EDSTATICA, the UAE's specialist data metrics organization focused on providing schools and educationalists with data intelligence in the education sector.
The voice of parents is important as it signals a school that listens and views parents as partners, delivering on a shared mission to provide an outstanding education for each individual child. Those schools that build powerful and positive relationships with parents are also our genuine community schools.
Parents that recommend their schools to others are those who are delighted with the education their child receives. Their voices matter, not least, as a signpost to other families of schools that may well provide a great education for their children too.
