Swiss International School in Qatar

The Swiss International School in Qatar (SISQ) opened its doors in January 2017 and has quickly taken its place as a leading school in Doha. SISQ has proven to be a popular choice for local and expatriate families alike and now caters for 750 students, operating waiting lists in several year groups. The school offers the PYP, MYP and DP with our first DP graduation in June 2021.

The school enjoys strong support from the Qatari Government and is truly international in character, welcoming students from over 65 nationalities and teachers from across the globe.

The SISQ vision aims to develop learners who are fulfilled, inspired and prepared. Through innovative pedagogy such as Project Based Learning, students are provided with meaningful opportunities to hone their twenty-first century communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity skills. Values such as service and respect are also embedded inside and outside the classroom.
