Our values of honesty, respect, responsibility and compassion guide our actions and promote a culture of inclusiveness and engagement. Our focus on student learning in a safe and secure environment ensures that each of our students is encouraged to reach his or her potential each day. And our focus on community development to support student learning means that ASD can be your lifeline here in Doha.
The ASD campus is centrally located in Doha and is a state of the art facility second to none in Qatar. It provides our faculty and students with scope to excel in all areas of our educational program: in the classroom; gymnasium; swimming pool; library; and stage.
We employ approximately 225 faculty across Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary, Middle and High Schools. All are dedicated professionals whose aim is to support the development of “the whole child” to ensure that students are equipped with twenty-first century skills. Our faculty empower students to develop a strong sense of pride and ownership in their growth and accomplishments.
ASD is an independent, US accredited, college preparatory co-educational day school, committed to providing educational excellence, through a standards based internationally enriched American curriculum. Through our four educational divisions we support student development to provide an education that focuses on the whole child/student.
ASD is a future-focused community where the on-going professional learning (PL) of our faculty is valued, encouraged and celebrated. Our teachers are fully supported in their PL and encouraged to embrace opportunities to improve their teaching. We recognize that professional learning is a shared responsibility and are strategic in our support of all PL programs and initiatives.
