In each of these classes, they develop skills like perseverance, creativity, and collaboration.

As with all subjects at QAIS, teachers have a minimum Bachelor’s degree and national or state teaching certificate relevant to their field; 75% also have a Master’s degree. All are also trained by the IB Organization to teach their subject in the IB Middle Years Program.

IB Diploma Programme (ages 16-19)

QAIS is proud to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. An IB Diploma is truly the most widely-recognized qualification for students entering university anywhere in the world.

The IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a two-year course of study aimed at students aged 16–19. Students choose courses from the following six subject groups:

      Studies in language and literature


      Language acquisition


      Individuals and societies






    The Arts

Students have the flexibility to choose to study an additional science, individuals and societies, or languages course instead of a course in the arts. Most courses are offered at a higher level (HL) and at standard level (SL). Courses at the higher level are more demanding and require more class time. Each student takes three higher level subjects and three standard level subjects.
