What makes us unique?
Qatar Foundation schools are part of an unparalleled educational model. These are some of the ways in which our schools distinguish themselves for students and educators alike.
Part of something greater
Through being a member of the larger QF family, our schools are part of a wide network of education, research, and community development initiatives working together to create unique synergies that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. This includes Education City, our flagship initiative that hosts branch campuses of eight top-ranked international universities alongside a leading homegrown university, and other research and scholastic centers. The learning experience of both students and educators are deeply enriched through collaborative initiatives, combined events, and shared amenities and services.
Unlocking potential for all
Our educational philosophy seeks to recognize and serve the individual learning needs of each student. From specialized schools to caring teachers and innovative curricula, our culture and pedagogies are geared toward crafting a personalized learning experience that enables all our students to flourish. Such an approach involves addressing varying learner interests, providing additional forms of teaching support, integrating technology in the classroom, and much more.
Globally informed, locally rooted
Our schools combine the best elements of an international curricula with the needs and strengths of our local educational context. As such, our schools are accredited by a variety of international bodies including CIS (Council of International Schools), NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges), and MSA (Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools).
In addition, many of our schools are authorized or are candidates for authorization by the International Baccalaureate (IB). Some of our educational institutes have developed their own, innovative curricular programs to meet the specific needs of their students
while still having international accreditation. In addition, all our schools are guided by national standards and directives mandated by the Qatar Ministry of Education and Higher Education.
Qatar is home to a remarkably diverse population, and this is reflected in our student body and the wealth of distinct cultural and learning identities and experiences that they represent. Through embracing the fast-growing multinational community of which we are a part, our schools offer learning opportunities that go beyond borders and continents. At the same time, our educational model draws deeply from its Qatari setting, organically integrating the local heritage, language, and culture into our curriculum.
Serving national needs
From the very beginning, the founders of QF tasked the organization to lead Qatar’s transformation toward a diversified economy built on the skills and talents of its people. As premier providers of Pre K-12 education in the country, our schools are playing a crucial role in building the country’s human capital from the bottom up. Beyond our own classrooms, we also work to discover and share cutting-edge pedagogies, best learning practices,
and more with the wider national and international community of educators. As such, our teachers are active participants in shaping the future of education in the region and beyond.
