A Note from the Athletics and Activities Director

ACS Community -

Since the fall of 2013 I have enjoyed every aspect of my time as the ACS Beirut Athletics and Activities Director. I have been in education for over a decade and have had the good fortune of working and serving in amazing and diverse communities. I believe that sports and activities develop deep and long lasting characteristics in students that cannot be found in other areas of education. Nothing can replicate the experience of being under the pressure of a stopwatch, an opponent, an audience, or a deadline, to force students to rely on his or her rehearsed or practiced skills to perform. I will continuously work to make sure that all students, in all grades have those opportunities to learn outside of the classroom, and I will constantly strive to produce quality students and programs that build for the future and educate for a lifetime.

The American Community School at Beirut has a proud history of excellence inside and outside of the classroom. This page is dedicated to the 10 athletic sports consisting of 32 different teams and the 8 activities comprising of 19 different clubs, productions, bands, and organizations. ACS is a proud member of the Oasis Activity Club (OAC), the Middle East Triangular Sports Conference (METS), and International Schools Activity Conference (ISAC).
