From the head of school

"Blyth Academy Qatar prides itself on being an inclusive learning environment with our diverse student population. It offers the world-renowned Alberta, Canada curriculum, preparing students for entrance into post-secondary institutions around the world. We are fortunate to have Alberta-certified teachers who are dedicated, highly trained and committed to providing a quality education to each and every student.

"Students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 are engaged in hands-on, experiential lessons and activities challenging them to be active learners. As a Canadian international school, we are known not only for our quality education but the sense of 'family' we portray in a collaborative and supportive learning environment. Our small class sizes, caring staff and multicultural atmosphere make our school community an inviting place for students to thrive and reach success.

"Our faculty is dedicated to providing effective, engaging classrooms that prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century. Every student is inspired to reach their academic potential in a supportive learning environment. BAQ also strongly supports the values, traditions, and culture of Qatar. Strong programs in Arabic or French, Islamic Studies, and Qatar History enhance the learning experiences of our students.

"I hope that you come and visit our school to see firsthand the welcoming, nurturing, and quality learning environment we have to offer."

Darlene Sullivan, Head of School

From the parents

"BAQ has provided a positive, multicultural, warm and welcoming environment for my son. It offers robust Canadian curriculum, and holds Canadian and Qatar accreditations. It supports my son's academic and social learning and teachers and administration are always available for discussion and planning, with my son's best interest in mind."

– Mary P (parent)

"One of the things that I have appreciated the most about Blyth Academy Qatar are the staff. Every child has challenging moments from time to time when it comes to school. When this happens, you want to know that your children are supported not only academically, but emotionally as well. BAQ’s greatest strength can be found in the teachers and other staff who make consistent efforts to engage, support and positively impact the lives of children."

– Sherry G (parent)
