The Dubai School Agency (DSA) of the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) in Dubai was established by virtue of the Executive Council Decree No. 11 of 2007. DSA was established to oversee the development of school-based educational services in the Emirate.
DSA focuses on building and maintaining partnerships between educational institutions and government organisations in Dubai. With a particular focus on Emirati students in private education, it further promotes the enrichment of education and the engagement of schools with the wider community. This is achieved through working with major education awards such as His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for Academic Excellence and support to organisations working in the field of environmental sustainability, security and healthy lifestyles.
