Welcome from the Director of the School
The American School of Doha (ASD) is committed to the intellectual and personal development of our students, inspiring and empowering them to become positive, active global citizens. This is our mission that we strive daily to achieve in every aspect of the school.
ASD’s impressive physical plant provides a backdrop for student learning of the highest caliber. Technology, music, art, physical education, theater, library, classroom and common spaces all communicate a message that learning is the core purpose and highly valued at ASD. The diversity of our students provides limitless opportunities to foster international mindedness and cross-cultural understanding.
This vibrant community focuses on learning. Learning at ASD extends within and beyond the walls of the school and is creative, innovative, authentic, collaborative, data-informed, technology-infused, and fun. Our teachers are exceptional educators who place understandings about learning consistently at the center of planning and instruction and who inspire students to the highest expectations.
Whether you are a student, parent, or staff member, you are a member of the ASD community. Our values of respect, honesty, compassion and responsibility guide our actions and promote a culture of inclusiveness and engagement.
The school’s mission and vision, administrative team and staff, facility and setting, and involved parents, all provide expertise, resources and a foundation for an acclaimed school for students. The American School of Doha provides the optimal environment for learning and understanding change in the 21st century. What better place and time to educate the finest global leaders of tomorrow? We welcome you to ASD!
