Middle School years are a time of transition, as students find themselves changing in many ways – physically, emotionally and socially.

Trevor's schooling and initial tertiary education took place in Zimbabwe at The University of Rhodesia. After receiving his initial qualification, meeting his wife Cathy and moving to the more temperate climes of the east coast of South Africa, he attained a Bachelor of Arts degree (majoring in English, Philosophy, History), followed by Bachelor of Education (Hons) and Master of Education (cum laude) degrees. 

At ACS Doha, we recognise that adolescents have a particular set of needs, and we actively address these through a responsive programme and caring environment.

We believe that learning should be worthwhile and rewarding. We encourage students to take the initiative, seek knowledge, and think independently through inquiry. We motivate all to embrace critical thinking as a means to achieve academic excellence.

We offer the renowned International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP) in Grades 6-10. The strength of the IBMYP is that it educates the whole student, and discovers the impact each one has on the world around them. The programme stresses holistic education, intercultural awareness and the importance of communication. Its goal is to constantly place learning within context, and to make explicit the relationship between various disciplines – developing well-rounded and engaging young people.
