ACS Doha welcomed a record number of students for the new academic year, a total of 907 students enrolled across the ages of 3 to 18, with the largest number of pupils in Early Childhood and Lower School since it began operations in 2011.

ACS Doha is one of the country’s leading international schools, offering a strong core curriculum built on the International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma Programmes, as well as the option of a US High School Diploma. With students hailing from over 70 different countries and a large percentage of local Qatari students, the rise in student numbers was experienced across all age groups and nationalities.

Head of School Robert Cody said that they have strong numbers at ACS Doha this year despite uncertainties surrounding the GCC diplomatic situation.

We are busy getting back to business as normal with the rest of the country by providing the best in international education with commitment and passion. I would also like to thank all our teachers, office and support staff for ensuring that ACS Doha was fully prepared for the safe arrival of our students on the first day.’

The number of teachers at ACS Doha has risen to match the increase in students, who come from a diverse variety of backgrounds to create a highly multi-cultural school community. A number of improvements have also been made to the current school grounds and facilities.

ACS Doha is hosting an open morning on 4 November where visitors will be able to find out more about the school, tour the facilities, and meet face-to face with the Head of School, Dean of Admissions and teachers.
