Superintendent's Welcome

Welcome to the American Community School of Abu Dhabi (ACS). Our international student body of approximately 1,200 students, representing 60 countries, receives an excellent education based upon an American style curriculum. At ACS we have created a community of learners who feel a sense of belonging, are able to ask and answer questions and know the value of being life-long learners.

We offer a personalized education, which prepares our culturally diverse student body for a lifelong commitment to learning, service and global citizenship. The faculty at ACS supports each student in their quest for academic excellence, artistic and athletic expression and international understanding. Our challenging and diverse programs provide our students with an excellent American education that has a global perspective.

We have provided a wonderful educational opportunity to the international community in Abu Dhabi since 1972. ACS is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and is also authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to offer the IB Diploma Program in grades 11 and 12. The IB Diploma is a rigorous academic program recognized by most universities around the world.

We encourage all students to take full advantage of the programs we offer. We invite parents to talk to our teachers and visit the school, become involved in PTA events and join us in the many celebrations and activities that take place throughout the year.

Our website provides information about our various programs; we continually update our website and appreciate your suggestions for improvements. We believe that when your children enroll at the American Community School of Abu Dhabi, your entire family joins our community of learners. We welcome your interest in our school and would be pleased to have you join us as we strive to create a compassionate, student-centered community of learners that engages, prepares and inspires.
