When you visit ASD you’ll see a vibrant school community with exceptional educational professionals, recruited from around the world, who are committed to delivering a true American education in an international setting.

ASD was established in 1988 by the U.S. Embassy and prominent members of the Qatari community to meet the growing needs of students in Doha, and now, 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 the best possible spaces for our committed teachers and coaches to inspire and educate students to become positive, active global citizens.

Technology, music, art, physical education, theater, library, classroom and common spaces all communicate a message that learning is the core purpose and 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 the comprehensive programs and education which are second to none in the region.

Our values of Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Compassion guide our actions and promote a culture of inclusiveness and engagement. Our focus on student learning in a safe, secure environment ensures that each of our students is encouraged to reach his or her potential each day. And our focus on community development to support student learning means that ASD can be your lifeline here in Doha.
