QAD, an IB World School, is authorized for the PYP, MYP and DP. Half of QAD graduates leave with an IB Diploma and all graduate with a CIS/ NEASC accredited high school diploma giving them access to the elite universities and colleges in North America, Europe, Qatar and elsewhere. We adopt a Dual Language approach in the Primary early years (KG - Grade 1), however English is the language of instruction in all disciplines and subjects except Arabic, Islamic Studies and Qatar History which are taught in Arabic. Over 80% of QAD students are Qatari and a large majority are English Language Learners. Boys and girls are taught in mixed classes for the PYP and the DP, and separately for the MYP (Grades 6 - 10).
