ASD is a school that is firmly grounded in its mission and core values, proudly located in Dubai, U.A.E - an incredibly diverse and modern city. Please visit our website to learn more about our school.

At ASD, students remain a primary focus as evidenced by our bold and courageous strategic plan - mobilizing us to make disruptive change in areas such as community service (e.g. volunteerism), meeting the diverse learning needs of students (e.g. inclusion), and deepening our relationship with metrics (e.g. using data to inform instruction). As we consider the work ahead, we are also exploring opportunities to personalize learning by developing “pathways” through the ASD curriculum, where students can go deeper in areas of interest or future-relevant disciplines. This year, our teachers will have opportunities to both learn more about this work through speakers and presentations, and also participate in the creation of ASD’s preferred future. It is truly exciting work and an exciting time at ASD.
