At MIS we understand the importance of using core activities that focuses on student centered learning. Mastery of academic-required materials, professional qualification and development of the teaching staff through continuous workshops and training seminars contribute to this effect. MIS is a Pre K – 12, English medium language college preparatory school, that offers students from the international community and the State of Qatar an American curriculum based on the California standards. Particularly, in the core subject areas of math, science, social studies and English, leading to a high school diploma upon completion of Grades 9 -12 and 24 credit. They include:
Students in grades 6 – 12 are able to access our biology, chemistry and physics laboratories, as an integral part of their science curriculum programs.
MIS offers students an expanded curriculum that could include electives and approved on-line courses not offered at MIS (i.e., Computer Science, Advance Placement (AP) courses/11 & 12 grades, SAT preparation, honor courses, Spanish, Chinese etc.).
We also offer students a wide variety of elective courses like art, Information Communication Technology (ICT), marketing, and we include the history of Qatar in our world history curriculum. Integrated technology provides a high quality of instruction through the use of computers, laboratories, and technical skills are also included in the education program.
Seniors are required to take either the SAT’s or the ACT and all tenth grade students are required to take the PSAT, in preparation for the SATs, in October of each academic year. MIS is an authorized testing center for the PSAT.
Additionally, all high school students must read four (4) novels per year in English. Seniors are required to submit a research project, using universally recognize research principles, as well as an essay that reflects the student’s five (5) year career plan, and a community service project.
MIS is committed to providing the highest standard of academics and dedicated to giving students the level of education that will result in the increase in student’s achievements and performance, as well as maximizing their potentials. The School is now engaged in comprehensive reform efforts. The usage of new assessment forms for assessing the effectiveness of our curriculum, teaching, and student performance are now being applied. General reviews and surveys are to be conducted bi-annually for the entire education program, in order to remain updated with the most recent internationally accepted American curriculum. Professional relationships are established among teachers, instructional supervisors, administrators, parents, student council and students.
The self-review program we have in place is intended to capture the strengths of MIS, as well as indicate areas of need and improvement.
Today, in Qatar, we prepare students for their future, one that can hardly be imagined. What we know is that critical thinking skills will be crucial to their success. Theirs is a digital world; their future will be more strongly affected by technology. Excellence in education as we enter the 21st Century presupposes that technology is seamlessly integrated throughout our instructional program.
Our mission is learning at high levels while integrating technology seamlessly throughout our curriculum, and for preparing our students to be competitive in the international community.
To achieve our mission we will provide a supportive environment and an exemplary educational program built upon a foundation of respect and high standards for achievement and effort.
