Car, bus

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

My child is on the new Madinat Khalifa Campus. There's a new sports hall and pool planned. IT and library facilities are great. Each classroom has a computerised whiteboard. There are loads of after school activities and they join with the other campus for some sports

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

My child had no problems but I know there is a lot of support for English if it is not your child's first language. In primary they use the International Primary Curriculum and British Curriculum in secondary. It's a great programme.

There is a social committee and a Parent Group. Parents can help in class and on trips

The fees are hig, but it's worth it because the teachers are fantastic and give so much time to the children. This is the best school in Doha - at least that's what we think.

My son is at Gharaffa but I agree with the above report. Teachers are enthusiastic and inspire the pupils to engage in their subjects. This campus facilities may not be the best in Doha but the teachers more than make up for it. I would recommend Compass International School for your child.
