Be a part of something special
At ACS Doha International School, we believe every student should be inspired and challenged to reach their full potential. We bring the philosophy and approach of our established UK schools to our Doha campus and combine them with a programme that integrates the local traditions, culture and history of Qatar.
We offer an Early Years Foundation (EYFS) programme for children ages 3-5, and an international/American Lower School programme for children 6-10. We are also a candidate school for the highly respected IB Middle Years Programme (IBMYP) and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)*. ACS Doha will also offer an American High School Diploma.
We have membership in CIS (Council for International Schools) and NESA (Near East South Asia Council of Overseas Schools) and are licensed by the Supreme Education Council (SEC) in Qatar. ACS Doha will also be seeking accreditation from WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) – a process that will take us two to three years.
We offer a rigorous academic curriculum of English, mathematics, science, humanities, world languages, physical education and fine arts. The overall curriculum and instruction are based upon respect for unique learning styles, and understanding of our international student population.
Our school promotes high standards of scholarship, responsibility and citizenship in a supportive learning community. We implement a developmental, student-centered approach to instruction, following an inquiry-based, interdisciplinary curriculum. The success of our school relies on the partnership between students, parents and staff in providing a positive and enjoyable educational experience.
Teachers emphasise active learning, using a student-centred approach and a variety of assessment techniques. Although our programme is challenging, we seek to provide support (English as an Additional Language (EAL) and Learning Support) to those who require it, ensuring that every child has the potential to be successful. Our goal is to equip our students to succeed at every age, attend the university of their choice anywhere in the world, and go on and live fulfilling and meaningful lives.
