Early Years (Kindergarten)
PreKG and KG-1 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 are following 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 curriculum has rigorous learning goals in all subjects. Arabic, Islamic and Qatar History is taught in line with the Qatar National Standards.
Grades 6, 7 and 8 make up our Middle School. In Middle School, students follow an international curriculum carefully mapped to the US Common Core Standards. Students follow a broad and balanced curriculum enabling them to build on the learning and experiences from Elementary School as well as being introduced to new learning opportunities and specialist subjects. We nurture their emotional, social, physical and intellectual development, enabling them to make a smooth transition into High School.
The High School currently consists of Grade 9 and will expand up to Grade 12 as the school continues to grow. Students start the US High School Diploma (HSD) in Grade 9. We have begun the process towards accreditation with NEASC. Students will follow a range of courses including mandatory subjects and electives to ensure that they are well prepared and able to access higher education courses. Students will have the opportunity to sit SAT examinations.
In the future we will apply for IB authorization and with the aim to give the students the opportunity to follow an alternative international pathway in Grades 11 and 12 and study the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program.
