Al Jazeera Academy was founded in September 2002 and offers an international
curriculum to students aged 3-18.
The staff at Al Jazeera Academy are experienced and highly qualified
and come from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK. The
school has developed an international curriculum for students from
pre-school to year 9. The curriculum is based on the English National
Curriculum and incorporates elements from Australia, New Zealand,
the USA, South Africa, Canada and other countries. The Arab language
is a key element of the curriculum for all students, both native
and non-native speakers of Arabic from Qatar and other countries.
In the secondary years boys and girls are taught separately and
follow the International GCSE. In Years 12 and 13 students will
undertake the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
School hours at Al Jazeera Academy are 07:30-12 noon for pre-school
classes, 07:30-13:00 for reception and primary classes, 07:25-13:00
for secondary classes. After school activities take place on a voluntary
basis on Saturdays and Mondays each week from 13:15 to 14:15. There
are three terms: September to mid-December; January to mid-April
and late April to end June. The Academy also observes the national
public holidays in Qatar, including Eid Al Fitr and the Eid Al Adha.
