About Us Menu
Welcome to Qatar Academy Sidra
Our school was established five years ago and serves the educational needs of children who are dependents of employees of the Qatar Foundation.
Our school slogan, Roots to Grow - Wings to Fly, comes from a quote by Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887) "There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings."
It reminds us of the dual purposes of education: one, to pass on accumulated knowledge and wisdom of the past, the other to build capacity, encourage creativity and foster an open, inquisitive approach to learning for the future.
We are currently an IB Diploma authorized school as well as a PYP (Primary Years Programme) and MYP (Middle Years Programme) candidate school. Our goal is to be fully authorized by January 2017.
We intend to offer our students a world-class educational experience driven by research-based best practices and the IB model.
Please explore our website and see what our school has to offer students, parents and prospective teachers.
I would be happy to answer any specific questions you might have if you would like to contact me directly.
