Parent comment

"Our son of 5 years old had the most extraordinary year in FS2 with a loving teacher and assistant teacher. He has made tremendous progress in all the fields. We are also extremely proud of our daughter, who received an excellent end-of-year, Year 8, school report. We are lucky that she is a serious and passionate student, however one key factor to her success are the exceptional and great teachers at OIS.

We could never have asked for better achievements in their first year at OIS.

As parents we are so proud of our two children and above all, we know that Oryx International School is the best choice for their education. As a mother, I can say that OIS is the "Pearl" of Education in Qatar. Thank you for this absolute fantastic academic year." - FS2 and Year 8 Parents
