ACS Doha, a leading international school in Qatar, committed to its long term vision of providing a dynamic educational experience to over 900 students in Doha, has recently renewed its lease for the next 4 years, with its landlord, Ezdan Holdings, at the school’s current site in Gharrafa. ACS is also continuing to progress its plans of developing a 2000+ student purpose built school that meets the requirements of the ACS IB curriculum and fulfills its long term vision for Doha.

As part of this long term vision, ACS Doha will introduce its first Grade 12 class in the next academic year, 2015-2016, in order to tackle capacity constraints faced by families at schools in Doha and enable seamless continuity of education for students at a single institution. Grade 12 students will complete the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, a premium entrance qualification to universities around the world. The IB Diploma Programme is recognised for its academic integrity, range and the high level of skills that each student must develop in order to succeed. ACS Doha’s first Grade 12 Class will graduate in May 2016.

In addition to the academic program, the ACS programme offers many support services to its students including a counselling programme for the Middle and High School students, in areas of career guidance and higher education.

Mr. Steve Calland-Scoble, Head of School at ACS Doha, said: “The introduction of our first Grade 12 Class represents a watershed in ACS Doha’s growth since we launched in 2011. This is another step in our development to support students in Doha with a high-quality academic experience to prepare them for the best colleges and universities worldwide. As well as learning through our academic curriculum, we recognise the vital role that counsellors play in providing targeted career guidance, university application and placements support to students. When this is matched with an individual resolve to succeed beyond the classroom it helps motivate our High School students to aim higher and achieve more. Through the ongoing conversations that are taking place with our new counsellors, I am confident that our Grade 12 students will also be inspired and challenged to reach their full potential, attend the university of their choice, and go on and live fulfilling and successful lives.”
