There is also Wi-Fi throughout the campus. A variety of after-school clubs and sports take place throughout the year, including swimming, chess, football and volleyball, with more being added as the High School expands.
What the school says
“ACS Doha educates students within a programme designed to develop their academic, social, emotional and physical potential. Every student is inspired and challenged to reach their full potential. The foundation of our curriculum is based on respect for the unique learning styles of students, and an understanding of the needs of internationally mobile and local children.
The engaging and reflective learning environment of our classes fosters the development of the child as an enthusiastic lifelong learner. The school promotes high standards of scholarship, responsibility and citizenship in a supportive, international community. We implement a developmental, student-centred approach to instruction following an inquiry-based curriculum.”
The school is a candidate IB World School and will soon be authorised to offer the IB Middle Years Program (11-16) and Diploma Program (16-18). In High School, all students work towards earning a High School Diploma and credit requirements for graduation through the range of courses provided. ACS Doha also has an English language support programme.
The school is located in the Al Gharrafa district, on Al Oyoun Street, near the Lulu store.
From the head teacher
“We're very fortunate to have assembled an experienced, highly qualified faculty who can individually and collectively provide an exciting, balanced, and highly productive education for our students from all over the world. ACS Doha is bringing the philosophy and approach of their established UK schools to the Doha campus and combining them with a programme that integrates the local traditions, culture and history of Qatar. Come see for yourself!”
