Students at the Center: Cultivating Future-Ready Passionate Learners
At the American School of Dubai (ASD), we are a community of gifted and unique learners. We work collaboratively to develop the talents of all learners. The Learner is the center of what we are and do. It's a wonderful time to be at ASD; it’s a great time to be a Falcon!
Our program seeks to develop the whole child. The High School experience continues to spark curiosity and nurture students to be producers—not just consumers—of knowledge. Students are encouraged to ask questions, think deeply, create new things, challenge themselves, and explore their curiosities. The ASD experience extends far beyond the classroom walls. Outside the classroom, learning is made relevant to life through the arts, musical performances, service learning, design thinking, capstone, self-directed learning, cultural exploration, travel, athletics, student organizations, and more. At ASD, we recognize our responsibility to facilitate learning experiences that give students authentic knowledge, skills, and content so they can positively contribute to the rapidly changing world in which we live.
In the High School, we are committed to stretching students’ curiosity, participation, learning, and thinking. ASD graduates are not only college and career-bound, but reflective thinkers, effective communicators, and role models. Our graduates are inquisitive, compassionate, and global-minded. They take full advantage of the many post-secondary opportunities across the globe. They know that the knowledge gained at ASD has given them the tools to follow their dreams, pursue their passions, and positively impact the world. Our students have integrity, intercultural understanding, and a strong academic foundation. Their ideas, creativity, and view of the world give us optimism about the future.
The Falcon experience is like no other. We welcome you to visit ASD so you can experience firsthand how we prepare Every Student to be Future Ready.
