About American School of Doha (ASD)

American School of Doha (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.

I attended ASD my entire educational life (from pre k to high school) before graduating in 2003. ASD offers high quality education that prepares a student for college in the US and elsewhere. They graduate students who are well equipped to attend Ivy League universities. The school prides itself on a diverse environment that is all about tolerance and respect. They teach children how to think, how to express their opinions, how to be speak in public, and how to debate. Love for the environment was also emphasized. I am always nostalgic for its annual events such as Friendship Festival and International Day. One downside is that the curriculum dwelled too much on US history and US politics rather than on world history. I found all that information irrelevant for non-Americans. The Arabic language curriculum was also comparatively weaker than the English language. Overall, I am giving it five stars because this school shaped my love for learning and prepared me well for life.

I attended the American School of Doha for 3 years. While the school and facilities were great, I definitely took some issues with the school leadership. Evidently, so did many of the best teachers, as many of them left.
