About Al Dhafra Private School

Al Dhafra Private School, Abu Dhabi is very well established and highly respected, both in the city of Abu Dhabi and beyond. Over half of the students are Emirati, with the remainder being mainly the children of expats from across the region. Almost all of the students are Muslim. The school enjoys the benefits of experienced leadership, excellent facilities and dedicated teachers. Since its inception, Al Dhafra Private School’s focus has always been securing the highest standards of educational excellence.

Values and Vision

The aim of Al Dhafra Private Schools is to create students who are well-educated, retaining a strong sense of cultural identity while being internationally-minded. It is a supportive school environment with a culture of respect, tolerance and trust, and teaching is always of a high standard and high expectations are always placed on students.

Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge 

In September 2018 the school was inspected and judged to be ‘good’ or better in all aspects, with many areas judged as ‘very good’. Al Dhafra Private School, Abu Dhabi is a K-12 school which has over 1400 students and delivers the American curriculum. Our students’ performance in examinations is excellent and has continued to improve during recent years. Our most recent inspection report states that, ‘Students demonstrate positive attitudes to learning through their very good behaviour and strong relationships with staff and each other’. This positivity is strongly supported by our owner and Board of Trustees who are committed to supporting the school to become ‘outstanding’ in the next few years.
