ASD is a school committed to respect, honesty, responsibility, and compassion. These core values undergird our mission and vision, and in this exceptional year, these values guide and sustain us. Our mission — to inspire and empower students to become positive and active global citizens — claims a lofty and necessary aspiration for challenging times.
Established in 1988 by the U.S. Embassy and prominent members of the Qatari community, ASD has witnessed and met the growing needs of international families in Doha. Now, more than 30 years later, ASD has become one of the premier American international schools in the world. The diversity of cultures and backgrounds in our community is an exciting strength of the school, and the world-class facilities provide spacious and dynamic spaces for our committed teachers and coaches to offer extraordinary opportunities to all of our learners.
Classroom and common spaces all communicate a message that high-quality learning is our main purpose and is highly valued at ASD. With the support of the Board of Trustees, the Board of Directors, the Leadership Team and the highly supportive parent community, ASD provides comprehensive programs and education which are second to none in the region.
Our vision sets us on paths to create collaborative, fun, and creative environments for children and young adults. We choose sustainable practices, we harness current technology, and we promote evidence-based approaches to the study of real-world problems. At ASD, learners are challenged to extend their learning and to become both positive and active global citizens.
American School of Doha’s focus on student learning in a safe, secure environment ensures that each of our students is encouraged to reach his or her potential. Schools routinely become a hub for families in international environments. Our focus on community development, our comprehensive set of programs and activities to support student learning, and our amazing campus offer students and families a true place of belonging and connection here in Doha.
