The school offers the American Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in the core subjects in addition to some additional school-specific and International standards, especially in the social subjects, to take into account our students’ background and the regional Arab culture.
As for the three subjects of Arabic, Islamic studies and Qatar History, the school is committed to the curriculum prescribed by the Ministry of Education and Higher education in Qatar.
The curriculum includes core subjects and other foundation subjects with English as an the official language of instruction.
Preschool & KG
At this foundation level, children are introduced to all the core subjects through playing, singing and Art while developing their motor skills, analytical & creative abilities and nurturing their social and personal development. Children learn about various concepts and themes that are relevant to their day-to-day life and are taught self-reliance and the ability to express themselves from an early age. There are no exams at the end of KG2 (Reception class). Entry into Grade 1 will be based on the child’s behavioral record and learning abilities.
The primary level is designed to provide students with fundamental skills in reading, writing and mathematics, and to establish a solid foundation for learning. The school places a great emphasis on academic achievement especially in Mathematics and Science where students are encouraged to develop curiosity, analytical and problem solving skills. In addition to core-subject books and workbooks, teachers provide supplementary worksheets and project activities to reinforce the learning and cater to students with different academic attainment. Given that more than 95% of our students are expatriates (dominantly from the MENA region), our curriculum provides them with a strong academic foundation that will qualify them to transfer to any part of the world with a high level of confidence, and the ability to integrate into any given curriculum within their grade level.
Examinations & Assessment
Activities are held in school and may vary between drama, music, Arts and crafts, home economics and indoor and outdoor sports. The school also organizes a varied and interesting program of field trips. In the past, we have taken students on visits to Public Parks and Gardens, Katara Cultural Village, The Museum of Islamic Art, The National Zoo, Aspire and The National Museum
