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

Dale Taylor, Middle School Principal

Dale was born in Barbados and educated in the UK, Canada, and the US. Her undergraduate degrees were completed at McGill University, and the University of Alberta, where she graduated with distinction with a Bachelor of Education. She completed her Masters in Education at the College of New Jersey, and she is currently working on her doctorate at the University of Bath. Dale has a keen interest in comparative and international education. Most of her career has been spent teaching in the Middle East where she has worked in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and The United Arab Emirates. She has also taught in Germany and Japan. While in Kuwait, Dale was the Assistant Principal at ACA School. She came to Qatar in 2011 to start the Middle and High School programmes at ACS Doha. Dale is committed to ensuring that individualised student learning needs are addressed during the course of formal education.

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.
