We understand the difficulties everyone is facing at a time like this, we appreciate you for supporting our school. 

Our main mission as always is our student’s education.  We will continue to use the current programs and apps until we receive an acceptance or new instruction from the Ministry of Education, thus we will continue with the current schedule for all subjects. However, we will not upload for Qatar History, French, and ICT as we have covered the curriculum for these subjects after April 23 2020. We will continue with our e-learning until further notice from the ministry.

After careful observations and discussions, our team has decided on a fair evaluation process to asses our students. Since our program is 8 weeks, this means they will have 8 graded assignments. By the end of this week, our students will complete 6 assignments either by Socrative or google class.  To give our students a chance to work hard and achieve the best results, we will pick the highest 5 grades in the evaluation. There will be no final exams. As for the midterm tests, the subjects that have been conducted will be considered. The remaining subjects, we will calculate 2 of the highest quizzes.
