International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme

The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) at Qatar Academy has been carefully planned to ensure that our students become caring, knowledgeable, open-minded, balanced, principled, and reflective young adults. We teach our young people to think critically, inquire into important issues, communicate well in at least two languages, and take calculated risks.
With access to over 60 community service, athletic, and academic after-school activities and several opportunities to travel the world in the Week Without Walls program, students are challenged well beyond the curriculum of an ordinary school. The student e-portfolios and student-led conference structure ensures that the focus is consistently on learning and growing while acquiring the grades and skills necessary to reach the IB Diploma Programme and attend the world’s most elite colleges and universities. In addition to eight required subject groups (Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Science, Physical Health Education, Mathematics, Arts and Design). Islamic and Arabic Cultural Studies classes are required, ensuring that knowledge of the local culture is attained by all students.
MYP teachers at Qatar Academy cooperatively plan and assess students’ work to ensure that learning opportunities and grading are consistent and accurate. The moderation process in grade 10 also ensures that a 7 at Qatar Academy is equivalent to a 7 anywhere in the IB world. With a number of teachers involved in larger IB initiatives, Qatar Academy’s MYP has been hailed as the leading program in the region and one that other schools aspire to replicate.
