Welcome to
Qatar Academy Al Wakra


At QAW, we believe an excellent curriculum must have strong alignment among the written, taught and tested components of the curriculum.

Our written curriculum is based on up-to-date international standards.

We utilize the following standards in each curricular area:

  • Arabic Language Arts: Supreme Education Council (SEC)
  • English Language Arts: Common Core State Standards
  • Math: Common Core State Standards
  • Information and Technology: National Educational Technology Standards for Students (NETS) – IT
  • Islamic Studies: Supreme Education Council (SEC)
  • Music: Georgia Music Standards - Music
  • Nursery and KG1: Head Start (all curricular areas)
  • Physical Education: Ontario Health and Physical Education Curriculum
  • Qatar National Studies: Supreme Education Council (SEC)
  • Science Content Standards for California Public Schools – Science
  • Arts: Washington State Curriculum Standards - Art

Our taught curriculum is the daily work of teachers in ensuring that students are learning skills necessary to reach the standards for each grade level. This work is documented through unit plans and lesson plans which is an on-going and cyclical process that teachers engage in throughout the year. The assessed curriculum includes formative assessments, as well as summative and benchmark assessments to ensure that all students are on track to meet standard or when instructional modifications and adjustments need to be made.

Arabic is a core subject. Islamic Studies and Qatari History are also taught during the Arabic portion of the day, further reinforcing Arabic language skills. Our standards represent what we feel are the best in both English language curriculum standards, Common Core, as well as Arabic standards, SEC standards, that are appropriate for our local context while preparing our students to be global citizens. The standards used by QAW and the text books that support the standards are consistent throughout the grade levels which creates a horizontally and vertically aligned curriculum to allow for an uninterrupted progression of learning (skills and concepts) in order to ensure all students have developed to their full potential and can achieve their dreams.
