ACS International School Doha is the only school in Qatar that was able to end its 2021 year with students attending all their classes throughout the week in-person, according to a statement Tuesday.
Thanks to the design of its spacious new landmark campus, students and teachers were able to engage in in-person learning, while still conforming to Covid-19 social distancing requirements and safety precautions.
Robert Cody, head of school, said:“How amazing is it that we began to return students to the experience of a whole-child education? This was an important reminder of what education truly is.'
ACS Doha's new campus, which opened in 2020, allows more students with bubble zoning based on the buildings' design. Age groups are separated, and each age group has its own library, gym facilities, and science and computer labs, making maintaining separation easier to track and control. Collaborative spaces allow further social distancing as well as more personalised learning approach tailored on learning styles.
Opening of new facilities such as larger gyms and theatre spaces have allowed students to also focus on a full curriculum inclusive of theatre, music and sports, all of which are important for a fully-rounded education, the statement added.
