Al-Ghubayya al-Fawqa was a Palestinian Arab village in the District of Haifa. It was depopulated during the 1947–1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine on April 8, 1948 during the Battle of Mishmar ha-'Emeq. It was located 28 km southeast of Haifa.
The population in 1945 was 1,130. al-Ghubayya al-Fawqa shared an elementary school built by the Ottomans in 1888 with the nearby villages of al-Ghubayya-al-Tahta and al-Naghnaghiyya. The school was later closed during the British Mandate period. The village had its own mosque.
