Rachel is excited about her new role at ACS Doha, and will be joined by her husband and 2 lovely girls, Mia and Emma, who will be a part of the Elementary school. Rachel is passionate about inquiry and constructivist approaches to learning and teaching and seeks to establish a caring environment where our young learners feel confident, and are provided with experiences that foster their creativity, promote exploration, and nurture self-identity and community relationships.

There is a sense of belonging here. Children, teachers and parents communicate freely. Our classrooms really do inspire. Learning is personalised to the needs, interests and abilities of each and every student. Children are confident to explore, problem-solve and take on new challenges as they make sense of their surroundings. 

Our programme is one of quality

  • A safe, caring and nurturing environment
  • Celebrating diversity, and the coming together of students from many different cultures
  • Where every teacher is committed to helping your child succeed
  • Where teachers are experts, accountable and approachable
  • Offering a planned curriculum with a focus on play and exploration, active learning, creative and critical thinking.

Our goal is clear. We understand best practice. We create an authentic, relevant learning experience for children. The result is happy students, genuinely motivated to learn.
