Our Campus

2020 ACS Campus Images

ACS has grown and thrived on its current campus in the heart of Abu Dhabi since 1972.

ACS has been at its current location for nearly 50 years and grown from a three-hectare plot of land serving 50 students to a bustling learning environment that now welcomes 1,200 students each day.

We are planning a bold and innovative move.  ACS is building a new, state-of-the-art campus on Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island, with plans to relocate in 2023. 


Our Current Campus

Campus improvements and growth have been a continual part of our story; from the addition of our swimming pool in 1989, acquiring adjacent land and adding a second turf field in the 1990s, to recent years and the construction of a separate Grade 4 and 5 building with multifunctional rooftop space and the creation of three innovative technology spaces that serve students of all ages.

Our Future Campus

With support from the UAE government and key stakeholders, we are building a sustainable, technologically-advanced campus on nearby Saadiyat Island that will be a globally recognized leader in the international school community. 

Situated 10 kilometres from our current location, our new campus will allow ACS to create innovative and flexible learning spaces that push the boundaries of traditional education. A larger campus with room for small growth in the student population will enable us to expand programmatic offerings. 

The need for a new campus has been a long-standing strategic priority that is driven by the desire to provide students and faculty with an inspiring 21st century environment for teaching and learning.
