  • Dubai First School (DFS) closed in 2011 or 2012 (date not confirmed)? This page moved to archive history.
  • Contact details removed from database - tel +971-4-3380333, fax +971-4-3380444, email dfs3@emirates.net.ae.
  • Location is (was) Al Hadiqa Rd between Sheikh Zayed Rd and Al Khail Rd, Al Quoz (Al Quoze, Al Qoz, Al Ghoze) community sector in Dubai.
  • Facebook page at facebook.com/pages/Dubai-First-school/133694116705703 - appears to be unofficial legacy information for students and staff. Email adress dubaifristschool@gmail.com appears to be a typo (should be dubaifirstschool@gmail.com?). Website www.dubaifs.com not available.

  • Dubai First School (DFS) might also be referred to as First Dubai School, but it's not the first school in Dubai - Al Ahmidiya School is a bit older.
  • Website supposed to be at www.dubaifs.com but not available when checked. Nothing at www.dubaifs.ae, www.dubaifirstschool.com, or www.dubaifirstschool.ae. Contact details and other information from KHDA.
  • KHDA information has DFS PO Box 1882 but that could be a typo, other sources have postal address as PO Box 11882 Dubai.
  • School moved to new premises in 1998.
  • School is a private fee-paying school for UAE national students. GCC country nationals might also be accepted.
  • Is accredited (or apply for accreditation) by Commission on International Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA), a USA school accrediting body.
