About ACS Doha:
At the very heart of ACS Doha is our warm, inclusive, welcoming community. It’s something our parents tell us they really value about our co-educational day school.
Home to over 1000 students, aged 3 to 18, representing 80 nationalities, we have 200 expert faculty and staff. It’s this global outlook that informs our world-renowned curriculum, building on the very best of global and US education standards. It gives our students unprecedented flexibility to tailor their studies from a wide range of options and access to world-leading universities.
Established in Qatar since 2011, we opened our landmark new 60,000sqm campus in Al Kheesa in September 2020, to accommodate up to 2,500 students. ACS Doha is part of ACS International Schools, which was established in 1967 and also has three schools in the Greater London area, UK.
ACS Doha is the only school in Qatar to offer both the College Board’s Advanced Placement Programme (AP) as well as the International Baccalaureate Career Related Programme (IBCP). We
also offer the full range of International Baccalaureate programmes: Primary Years Programme (IBPYP), Middle Years Programme (IBMYP), Diploma Programme (IBDP). This is in addition to the US High School Diploma.
Our educational approach embraces the fact that every child comes to ACS Doha with his or her own hopes and aspirations. To meet these needs, we believe it is important to encourage the pursuit of academic endeavour within a caring environment that promotes each student’s ability and learning style.
