Welcome to the International School of London Qatar and thank you for your interest in our school!
Our website contains a wide range of information about our school, and we look forward to hosting prospective families for a campus visit. It is here where one can truly get a sense of what ISL Qatar offers as a vibrant and caring learning community.
ISL Qatar is dedicated to our Mission in which “...we believe in our students' ability to build a bright future, and that our purpose for being here should guide everything that we do.” Our students are making a difference in the world today, and our alumni go on to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Underpinning everything we do, our Core Values - Diversity, Understanding, Passion and Identity - provide the foundation for our students to flourish and become the best version of themselves.
Our students' passion for learning is nurtured by a dedicated, progressive professional community coming from nearly 50 countries. We are enthusiastic about learning and, and we implement innovative approaches to teaching while meeting the needs of all students by personalizing education.
ISL Qatar, internationally accredited by NEASC, has also established itself as a leading International Baccalaureate (IB) school in the region, and we are proud to observe the highest academic standards through the offering of the IB Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes. This supporting structure, combined with a curriculum of global outlook ensures our students realize their academic aspirations, fulfill their potential, and become active global citizens prepared for life at leading universities around the world.
Reinforcing our focus on being a truly international school which fosters our cultural diversity, ISL Qatar offers one of the most distinct and dynamic language programs in the world. Our mother tongue language program currently supports 12 languages, and we are always open to offering additional languages. This program promotes respect for the literary heritage of a student’s home language and provides an opportunity for students to continue to develop literacy skills in their mother tongue while studying in a different language of instruction. Today there is overwhelming research evidence that supports our philosophy of nurturing students’ cultural and linguistic identities. In addition to our mother tongue languages, most of our students also learn another modern language from our offerings of Arabic, French or Spanish. Lastly, we welcome students new or recent to the English language. We provide an inclusive learning environment through our English Language Support. Every ISL Qatar community member is a learner of multiple languages.
Most important, ISL Qatar possesses a strong sense of community. We are a diverse learning community representing over 70 nationalities. We celebrate this diversity as well as our commonalities. ISL Qatar is a family. We look out for one another, celebrating each other's successes and offering encouragement and support when facing challenges. The energy and excitement on our campus is contagious. Come check it out for yourself! I look forward to meeting you in person soon.
Yours in partnership,
Sean Areias, Ed.D.
