Qatar Academy Al-Khor aims to provide students with differentiated learning opportunities that address their needs and develop their potentials. The school encourages using a variety of teaching methodologies focusing on the student as a learner. Student-centered and inquiry-based learning are strategies used to help students take the ownership of their learning and make a connection between what they learn at school and their own real-life experience.
The School’s administration has selected the International Baccalaureate Primary Year Program (IBPYP) program to be implemented at the Elementary school starting next year (2017-2018). PYP is a program designed for students from pre3 up to grade 5. It aims to boost each child’s intellectual, emotional and physical potential providing a secured and stimulating environment that is conducive to learning. QAK strives to develop the IB Learner’s Profile’s attributes with special focus on the international mindedness in an effort to nurture young students who will grow up to be global citizens.
The subject areas of Arabic, Islamic Studies, Qatar History, Mathematics, English, Science, Information Technology, The Arts, Physical Education and Library have their own selected standards each and are taught through trans-disciplinary themes in order to help students make connections between the subjects, thereby facilitating more effective learning.
Students are involved in sports and after school extracurricular activities that support holistic learning, transfer of skills, and the development of the whole child.
