Our History

School Established in 1982 

Al Diyafah High School LLC was founded 34 years ago, 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 1,480 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, we now move on to greater heights.

The school’s objective is best expressed through its mission statement of attempting to create competent, caring and confident students through its holistic based education. Our students actively support social issues like environment, literacy, relief and endeavor to become leaders in their own right. Such an all-rounded system of education has helped Diyafah produce an ever- increasing list of alumni who have gained admissions in several Universities in Canada, USA, Australia and the sub-continent.
