Superintendent's welcome

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 seventh 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 serves 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 more than 50 years to continuously improve the quality of learning experience provided to 1,830 K1 - Grade 12 students.

The Richards family has joined ASD this year, and we did so in great part because of the strong community-centered reputation the school enjoys. ASD is more than simply an academic institution. We care deeply about the social, emotional, and physical development of each of our students, and how our alumni are making their way in the world. We also value an open and honest relationship with our parents, where they are active partners in the growth of their children.

On behalf of the entire ASD community, I look forward to assisting you in your interest in the school, and in your transition to our community if we are fortunate enough to have your commitment.
