All students, whose mother tongue is Arabic, are required to study Arabic as a First Language. Many universities and higher education institutions in the Middle East and North Africa use Arabic as the medium of instruction, therefore a high level of competency is a prerequisite for admission.
For younger students, we believe that having an excellent grasp of standard Arabic is essential to communicate effectively and better relate to the Arab culture. We provide dedicated resources and adheres to the programme of study defined by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE).
We feel it is important to provide students with the opportunity to deepen their spiritual and religious knowledge. Dedicated curriculum time is devoted to Islamic Studies for students of the Islamic faith from Foundation Stage - Year 12. Students follow MoEHE resources. The Islamic Studies curriculum is delivered in Arabic for students whose first language is Arabic. For students who do not posses native Arabic, Islamic Studies is delivered in English.
All students study Qatar History up to Year 9. Students follow the MoEHE curriculum and use resources developed by the Ministry. We believe that for students to become global citizens, it is important for them to develop respect for, and celebrate local heritage. For non-Qatar nationals, this learning experience enables them to have a greater understanding and empathy with the local community. Qatar History is delivered in Arabic for students whose first language is Arabic.
