Middle School

I am proud to be part of the ACS middle school team. The American Community School of Abu Dhabi has a strong reputation among international schools. This reputation is due to a wonderful team of committed and experienced educators, involved parents, and most importantly, engaged and inspired students.

Between the ages of 10 and 14, children experience tremendous physical, social and cognitive growth. While we are first and foremost an academic institution, ACS takes great care to help students reach their full potential as their minds and bodies grow and their social circles expand. Our classes and programs are designed to allow students to work cooperatively, problem-solve, apply new learning and participate in a wide range of academic, artistic and athletic endeavors. This is evident in our encore choices including chorus, band, design technology, drama, guitar, digital photography, art, and more. Students also have the choice of studying French, Spanish or Arabic as their foreign language.

The ACS campus is just as busy after school, and our middle school staff provides engaging extra curricular activities for our students. These "Fun After School" activities include an intramural sports program divided into distinct seasons, as well as a variety of enrichment programs and activities. Some examples of these include the middle school newspaper - the Viper Vision, Model United Nations, Math Counts, drama, dance, robotics, jazz band, ultimate frisbee, arts and crafts, computer programming, fitness classes, and many more.

As you can see, our middle school is and engaging and vibrant place. Please feel free to stop by for a visit, browse this website for more information or contact us should you have questions about our school.
