Which School: American, Brit or Indian?

By Banker

Friends

I am aboutto move on 01 May. My wife and I have not yet been able to understand clearly which school provides the best education. We are from India and have 2 sons of 8 and 5 years. This is a serious worry - so close to D-day yet no proper view on this. Pls. help with insights.

a lot depends on how much you want to spend.

i have experienced ideal indian school.i am a pakistani and it suits me.

it is cheaper in cost and worth the money u spent

Dear Banker,

To answer your original question, I would say, "Send your children to any school that will give you places." For some schools in Qatar, just getting onto the waiting lists is not possible because the waiting lists are "closed". Therefore any discussions about which are the "best" schools for your children are fairly worthless.

Go to an Indian skool. Then only there will be realize the rigors of the curriculum... any case indian education is most supreme....

Don, if you are canadian i would suggest you check out in ASD American School of Doha.

Alternatively you go to Doha College. I suggest you go down to the school and have a look around before you decide.

I guess I've got some of the same concerns. The websites all look good. We're from Canada with a 14 and 11 year old (going into Grade 10 and 6 here). Anyone with any personal experiences?

I think it depends a lot on were your coming from and how they have been taught, and were you will be in the future, eg: If your children are from england and 1st language is english and in 4 years you will return to the Uk personally I would pick an English school so that there education will continue smoothly as they use the same curriculum, thats one of the first things I would look at
