The original DIA, at Emirates Hills, was established in 2005 and for over a decade has celebrated its status as an IB World School, the first in the UAE to be authorised to offer the continuum of the three IB programmes – Primary Years, Middle Years and IB Diploma.

DIA - Al Barsha builds upon this legacy of success and quality, catering for the growing demand for a high-quality IB education in this region. This is an exciting time for all involved as we develop a school, founded upon the core values of DIA and the IB but with its own uniqueness and character.

DIA Al Barsha students’ attainment is benchmarked against international standards, and their final IB Diploma results are well above world average and among the best in the region. Similarly, MYP results are strong. This focus on strong academic outcomes will also underpin our educational philosophy at DIA Al Barsha.

However, there is much more to school life than academic success alone. We offer a variety of opportunities for students’ holistic development, including sports, cultural events, performance and competition and our facilities are recognized as among the best in the region.
