SCHOLASTICS

SIS has a planned teaching learning programme to develop skills, competencies and knowledge in languages and subjects like Mathematics, Science, and Social Science for classes I to X. A concentric approach is adopted to develop different concepts as children move along the classes every year. For Classes XI and XII, in addition to Functional English which is common to all the students, they select four elective subjects from the list of available subjects and combinations.

The subject topics are split among two terms for classes up to X and evaluation is done at the end of each term, one in September and the other in March. For classes XI and XII also the units and topics for all the subjects are split up term-wise. However the final results are base on the Final Examination conducted at the end of the academic year in March.

Qatar History and Geography is taught to all classes. Islamic Studies is taught to all muslim students while other students are taught Moral Studies.
