American School of Doha a trusted school of Excellence

The American School of Doha (ASD) is an English-language day school offering an American curriculum (pre-kindergarten to grade 12) for expatriate families and Qatari nationals who seek a comprehensive, caring, American standards-based program in an international setting. ASD is an independent, non-profit, coeducational day school operating under the policies and bylaws of a twelve-member Board of Directors and a nine-member Board of Trustees, which is chaired by the U.S. Ambassador.

 

The American School of Doha was founded in 1988 and opened in a villa to serve a small number of expatriate families. With increasing demand for high quality education in Qatar, a new campus was opened to house 600 students in 1998-99, and with the explosive growth of Qatar in 2005, a new expansion project was undertaken that resulted in a new middle and high school on adjoining land and a complete renovation and expansion of the old campus for the elementary school. From 2013-2017, ASD underwent a $35M Campus Improvement Project to increase capacity and improve facilities across the entire school.  This Campus Improvement Project has maximized the school footprint to allow for enrollment of up to 2250 students from Pre-K to grade 12.

The surge of growth in ASD has resulted in the creation of a progressive school with an impressive and varied program that serves students from over 70 countries, with approximately 50% from North America and 10% from the host country of Qatar. The academic programs have been a forerunner in professional learning and curriculum development, and the school enjoys a regional and worldwide reputation for excellence. Elementary and Middle School students follow a U.S. standards-based curriculum in a comprehensive school setting.  High school students have the opportunity to choose from the Advanced Placement program and the IB Diploma program as part of their American high school diploma. ASD is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and a certified IB Diploma School.

The American School of Doha, with its contemporary glass design and geometric canopies, is a work of art in itself which makes it the best international school campus in Qatar. The lush campus of twenty acres is one of the greenest and most enjoyable in all of Doha.  The campus currently provides state-of-the art facilities, including a new elementary library with a new “maker space”, a new learner’s pool, an enclosed early childhood play courtyard, a greenhouse, two 25m swimming pools (one outdoor and one indoor), a full-sized soccer pitch, a smaller soccer field for elementary, the only baseball diamond in Qatar, a 400 meter track, an indoor climbing wall, a theater for 630 people, four elementary music rooms, seven purpose-built art rooms, three computer labs, two cafeterias, a middle/high school library, three presentation rooms, ten science labs, a central office complex, a drama room, two tennis courts, three covered playgrounds, and an extensive fitness center.
