This school is one of the worst schools in Qatar, and trust me, I know a lot about many schools here and I’ve got to say this is at the bottom of the list. First off, the school lies about having British staff when you can barely find any British teachers here. 85% of them are Lebanese who don’t understand anything about education and teaching. They only put YouTube videos, go through presentation slides for 3 minutes and call that teaching. They tell the kids to teach themselves. Kids leave the school without learning anything new. It is disgusting they take 40,000 QR per year when the school doesn’t even do its job! I will definitely be removing my child from this school this year and taking them to another school. If you want a REAL, BRITISH school, don’t take your kids here!! Take them to a public school instead. At least you’re not paying 40,000 and your kids don’t even learn anything!!!! This school should be closed.

This school is the worst, people say that it's the best school ever and they have so many good memories unlike me I have very bad memories about this school. The students are very disrespectful and even get me in trouble when I don't deserve to. Someone keeps on stealing my stuff , when we have to do something in groups mostly I don't get to do anything because the students just mostly ignore me and plan with other people. Also, friendships are ending and I get homework every SINGLE day because of Arabic. I don't recommend this school. I'm definitely moving to a new school hopefully in January. Not recommended at all.

I used to go to this school when i was younger, about 6 years ago before i moved to America:( I loved and missed my teachers and friends. I did get picked on a bit but that didn’t bother me at the time. Hopefully that has changed now! It’s a good school for education though! I know it has been a while but I can still remember. They teach English and Arabic so it can help for the future if you do move to America. Thanks for all the memories I made when I was little, I was truly happy.

I have worked at this school for a half a year but had to return due to personal reasons. However, I can 100% recommend this school for any teacher looking to work in Qatar. The SLT (admin) are amazing, understanding and helpful. In particular Mr Jaco. He provided support throughout my time there. Also Mr Darren provided quite a lot of support a person that was willing to listen and have a conversation a morale booster for sure. The science team were fantastic our Head of Department Ms Shejila ran an efficient team and was always available to answer questions. Watch out for Mr Lawrence the physics teacher you will instantly fall in love with his warm, kind and caring personality. Very helpful in providing support and material for physics I will have to mention Ms Rekha an asset to the team. Very highly organized and kept informing me of key dates to watch out for and an amazing teacher to be working alongside with in terms of planning of chemistry. Finally, I would like to mention the Science Technicians Ms Lina and Ms Khescen. I ordered a lot of practical equipment during the last week of the January mid term and they delivered everything and laid everything out in an amazing way. They also collected on time. The practical activities would have been impossible without them. In short EMS is true to its strap line "a place where we belong" I would highly recommend this place to anyone that wishes to work there. All of the science team and the teacher beyond the science team were welcoming. The students, in my experience were very well behaved and studios very keen to learn as well as being polite. They will be missed.

Arrogant and biased staff. They care only about Qatari students. I do not recommend this school at all. The teachers from asian origins afraid from Qatari students which affect other students. Discrimination at its best!!!
