Welcome to Qatar Academy Sidra

I’m pleased to welcome you to Qatar Academy Sidra. My name is Mona Al-Majzoub Al-Sabbagh, QAS Director. With an extensive experience spanning more than twenty-two years in the field of education, where I have held various teaching and administrative roles, I have always found a second home in the classroom. Nevertheless, my role as the director of a school implementing the International Baccalaureate program marks the pinnacle of my professional achievements.

I consider the daily collaboration with teachers and the oversight of students’ growth to be profoundly rewarding. I firmly believe that every student has the capacity for excellence and that forging a partnership between families and the school is fundamental in sculpting the future of students as individuals, as well as in advancing our society and nation.

I am committed to fostering a collaborative educational environment that ensures the ongoing success and well-being of our students. Your support and involvement are vital in this educational endeavor.

I am honored to be part of the Qatar Academy Sidra family and look forward to working together to deliver a productive and positive learning experience for our students.
