Language support for students not fluent in the school's language of instruction

EAL at ACS Doha serves the needs of non-English speaking students – from beginners to advanced levels – enabling them to reach a sufficient degree of proficiency in the English language to participate fully in our mainstream classes.

Use of technology in the classroom

ACS offers a fully integrated mobile learning programme at every age.
The adoption of mobile technology empowers both students and teachers with greater access to ‘instant’ learning capabilities, both in and outside of the classroom. Immediate benefits include an increase in active teacher facilitation, as well as a significant rise in student engagement and participation. The longer-term advantages are as dynamic and as individual as the people who make up the global learning community.

The nature of learning has changed and ACS embraces the reality that mobile technology is at the core of a new educational experience. With iPads for Grades PK3 to 2, laptops for Grades 1 to 11, and a bring-your-own Mac laptop programme for Grades 6 to 11, ACS pursues excellence in areas that are relevant to a progressive education, and life in the wider world beyond.
