The 2022-23 school year marked the 50th anniversary of the American Community School of Abu Dhabi (ACS). Officially established as a fully independent nonprofit school in 1972, ACS has been empowering generations of students to define and shape their futures for learning, service and global citizenship. As we look to the next 50 years, we are committed to ensuring our students continue to thrive in a rapidly changing world. At the heart of our strategy is our new home: a world-class, innovative and sustainable campus that will push the boundaries of excellence for ACS and for Abu Dhabi at large.
