About School

American School Dhahran (ASD) is a not-for-profit, coeducational, Kindergarten to Grade 12, international school offering an American standards-based curriculum capped by either the AP Capstone Diploma or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. We encourage our students to be active learners which develops learner agency. Learner agency is students taking ownership of their own learning by using critical thinking and feedback to independently make choices. They are able to set goals that align with their interests, needs and motivations and are able to reach their goals. Agency and autonomy increase as students progress, and students are given ample opportunities to grow through an exciting range of enrichment programs, after school activities, athletic programs and leadership opportunities. At American School Dhahran we are driven by our mission, "We inspire innovation and compassionate action." We view our community as a family of educators, students and parents working together to live our mission. ASD is accredited by the Middle States Association for Colleges and Schools (MSA) and is a member of Council of International Schools (CIS). The school is authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) and authorized to teach the Advanced Placement Courses and the AP Capstone Diploma.
