New Middle School Construction
In order to meet the growing educational needs of the North American population in Dubai, several years ago the American School of Dubai began visioning, planning and the design work for a new Middle School building on the Al Barsha campus. In October 2017 the ASD Board of Trustees approved commencement and construction on the plot of land formerly known as the Gate 4 parking lot. The new Middle School will provide exciting, purpose-built spaces for the innovative aspects of an American School of Dubai education, such as STEAM labs, a library, Black Box theatre, agora spaces and advisory programs and the learning needs of middle school students, both in program design and curriculum. The project allows the continued development and refitting of the ASD High School, further meeting the education needs in Dubai. The construction is anticipated to last 14 months with school occupation of the new spaces for the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
The ASD community and visitors are requested to observe the new traffic flow in the school vicinity and the new drop-off/pick-up zones.
