Read about the different types of international school if you aren't sure what the difference is.


The quality of education in Qatar is very high, especially for expats through the wide range of international schools. It is possible for international parents to put their children in government funded schools but the majority of expats opt for private international schooling.

If you are buying property in Doha and are from abroad, you can only purchase in selected areas. This will obviously have an impact of which school you opt for; traffic in Doha can be pretty bad at peak times so make sure you have an idea on where you will be before getting too attached to a school.

You can explore different schools on our map below or work your way through the list ranked on the quality of reviews.
