Dear Parents,

On behalf of all of us at the Dubai American Academy Parent Association, fondly known as DAAPA, we would like to extend a very warm welcome to all new families joining our wonderful school community this year.

Throughout the school year, we organize many fun events for our community including coffee mornings, book club events, community yoga, and of course, our famous Wild Wadi Waterpark Night! We are always excited to have new families join our events or volunteer a few hours to assist with planning an occasion or decorating the school.

To connect with us, send us an email at

We hope to meet you soon! 

Kind regards,

DAA Parent Community Business Listing

We have received an overwhelming response from the DAA parent community for our DAAPA initiative to compile a list of local businesses that are run by DAA parents ahead of the Holidays. The list is now ready and includes over 50 local businesses ranging from Food & Catering, Fashion & Accessories to Home Services and Health & Wellbeing products.
