Diyafah International School

Mohammed Bin Zayed City


Al Diyafah High School was founded over 35 years ago, in September 1982, by the 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.

To accommodate growing numbers, the school moved to a new campus in 2001, where the Dubai school is presently located. The school now has over 1,500 students from several nationalities, all studying together as one big family. 

In 2013, the Diyafah decided to broaden its offering to open a new campus in the capital, Abu Dhabi. Today 5 years on we have grown into an A-rated school in Abu Dhabi offering the British Curriculum. We currently have 50 nationalities within the school and over 43 spoken languages. 

The school's mission statement "Let Your Light Shine" summarizes Mrs D'Cunha's wishes of developing competent, caring and confident students through a holistic based education. 

Our Mission: We are committed to a holistic based education in a caring and enlightened environment. We aim to foster creative thinking, courage of convictions and a positive attitude to draw out the highest potential in every student’s mind, spirit and body.
