We will offer an innovative and exciting bespoke international curriculum through the International Early Years and International Primary Curriculum (IEYC and IPC).
The IEYC and IPC curriculum is taught in over 2,000 schools and 98 countries, making it a truly global and international curriculum. The school will offer a NEASC accredited US High School Diploma or IB Diploma to students who are preparing for entry into the best international universities.
Pre-Kindergarten (PreK), KG 1 and KG 2 will follow the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC). The IEYC uses international best practices, holistic inquiry and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development.
Elementary Grades will follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), an internationally recognized and renowned curriculum. It is a comprehensive, thematic curriculum which is creative, develops international mindedness and encourages personal learning. The Mathematics and English basics will be guided by the English National Curriculum, with rigorous learning goals, in these subjects. Arabic, Islamic and Qatar History will be taught in line with the Qatar National Standards.
Middle School Grades
The Middle School Grades will incorporate the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), which is a challenging, internationally minded and concept-focused curriculum. The IMYC encourages creative and critical thinking skills in a thematic based curriculum to develop active and engaged learners. With specific subject and personal learning goals, it provides a clear structure to develop knowledge, skills and understanding whilst connecting subject learning to their own cultural context. Mathematics and English basics will continue to be guided by the English National Curriculum along with the subjects required for Qatar and their guidelines.
Students in Grades 9 and 10 will be able to choose to complete the IGCSE exams or they can follow the school-based curriculum which will be accredited by NEASC, a US accreditation organization. Students in Grades 11 and 12 will continue to study the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) curriculum or they can pursue the school-based curriculum. Students will be able to choose to complete country-specific exams, such as the SAT if required by their university of choice. Both pathways will provide The Hamilton International School graduates with a school-based High School Diploma, accredited by NEASC, a US accreditation organization. This diploma will prepare them for and allow entrance into universities around the world.
