Welcome to Dubai National School-Al Barsha Branch

Founded in 1988, Dubai National School (DNS) has established an excellent and well deserved reputation in the United Arab Emirates for providing high quality education for students from Kindergarten to the High School. DNS – Al Barsha has been awarded accreditation from New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEAS&C) through the Commission on International Education (CIE). In April 2014, the school has been granted re-accreditation by the NEASC Commission on International Education (CIE) for the next ten years.

Over the past years, the school has always sought ways to continuously improve upon the education that it provides and it certainly has all the raw materials present to ensure continued success.

Our staff embodies a wide range of experience and a wealth of enthusiasm. Our parents are tremendously supportive. Our students throughout the school are lively, enthusiastic, and highly motivated. We pride ourselves on having a family atmosphere and a strong sense of community spirit which has resulted in a supportive, caring environment and positive relationships between students, parents and staff. This was highlighted when the school was awarded renewal of accreditation by NEAS&C in April 2014.
