ACS International School Doha has opened its doors to its new campus in Al Kheesa. Situated in an accessible location off the Al Shamal Road, the state-of-the-art campus continues to remain well connected to the existing ACS Doha community, while also serving the expanding Doha areas including Lusail and The Pearl.

Spanning an impressive 60,000 square metres, the new campus is designed to accommodate almost 2,500 students and boasts countless facilities designed for inside and outside-the-classroom learning. It features a FIFA-sized football pitch, an all-weather athletic track, a large multi-purpose indoor gym and a 25-metre swimming and learners’ pool. The school enjoys purpose-designed drama studios, music practice rooms, wellness and warrior studios, among other amenities. It also supplies well-equipped science laboratories and libraries to dedicated Lower, Middle and High School buildings.

The school is COVID-secure and the spacious surroundings enable students to maintain effective social distance. Kindergarten, Lower School, Middle School and High School divisions enjoy separate entrances and purpose-built facilities, keeping student groups separate. In Doha since 2011, ACS has a fine pedigree in Qatar and works closely with its three sister schools in the UK, with over 50 years’ experience and expertise.

The stunning campus has been designed by internationally-renowned architects Broadway Malyan to meet ACS’s exacting curriculum and community requirements. The indoor and outdoor facilities offer extensive academic and extra-curricular choices and deliver the ACS trademarked standard of education.

ACS Doha offers all IB programmes and continues to develop ways to enhance its students’ academic experience. Currently, it is the only school in the country to be offering both College Board’s Advanced Placement Programme (AP) as well as the International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme (IBCP), allowing students to select either track better-suited to their individual academic aspirations. With the establishment of the new campus, ACS Doha looks forward to enriching its students’ lives.
