Welcome to the American School of Dubai (ASD), a school deeply committed to the mission of challenging and inspiring each student to achieve their dreams and to become a passionate learner prepared to adapt and contribute in a rapidly changing world. The American School of Dubai, founded in 1966, enters the fourth full year of operation on the beautiful purpose-built campus in Al Barsha. Although the facilities are indeed superb and represent some of the finest in the Middle East, it is the commitment to the mission and ASD Core Values - Compassion, Excellence, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility - that serve as a foundation for the learning experiences that prepare students to successfully navigate their future.
As you learn about ASD, you will begin to develop an understanding of what is unique about our school. ASD is an independent, not-for-profit American community school. Our not-for-profit status enables ASD to focus on the quality of education over satisfying investment expectations of shareholders. Tuition helps fund the cost of education to deliver on our educational mission that is dedicated to educating the whole student. ASD continues to build on the rich and extensive history of nearly 50 years to continuously improve the quality of learning experience provided to 1,650 K1 - Grade 12 students.
Whether you are a family seeking a school in Dubai that deeply values the home-school partnership in educating your child, an educator seeking opportunities that offers a truly learning-centered environment or a current school family, you are invited to learn more about what makes ASD a special place to learn.
