About Al Diyafah High School

Al Diyafah High School Dubai was founded in September 1982, by Late Mrs. Winnie D’Cunha. It started as a Nursery with only 2 children in a small villa located on Al Diyafah Street, in Dubai. That’s how it got its name.

To accommodate the growing numbers, the school moved to a new campus in 2001, where we are presently located The school now has over 1,600 students from several nationalities, all studying together as one big family. It has indeed grown, in name and number. The students are offered a wide range of subjects from the Science, Commerce and Humanities streams. The primary section has progressed to a very competent senior school and as the vision continues to take flight, Al Diyafah High School now moves on to greater heights.

Good school, maybe a little more space is needed for sports. My kid looks forward to going to school everyday.

Good school. The overall performance in this school is just average. Bullying is familiar in every school, but in this school, there is no restriction.There should be a rule to prevent bullying in this school so that it would be better for the victims of the bullies. Academics are pretty good, but most teachers don't really pay attention to individual students. But there are some teachers who really care and tutors the student one-by-one. Staff is very efficient, cooperative, kind & helpful. Transportation (buses) are old-fashioned. Some improvements are very necessary to make this school one of the best school in Dubai.
