Principal's message

 

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Newton International School Lagoon (NISL) website.

 
If you are looking to enroll your child at NISL, you have made the right choice. Please take some time to look at the website and see for yourself what makes NISL a great choice for an international school in Qatar. 
 
At NISL, every student is prepared for life in our global community while maintaining a strong set of values based on their cultural heritage. The NISL student body is made up of over 50 different nationalities and we are very proud to provide a rigorous international English curriculum sustained by Arabic family values. Our high standards are supported by a variety of programs and teaching strategies that ensure we identify and address the learning needs of each and every child in an international community of learners striving for excellence and celebrating success. 
 
Established in 2006, NISL has grown to serve over 2000 students, ranging from Early Years (3 years old) to studying for IGCSEs in Year 11 and AS-Levels in Year 12. The school provides the facilities and space to enable our continued growth and a beautiful learning environment.
 
Our commitment and experience with the English National Curriculum is evident from the success of our students. NISL students go on to study at universities locally and all around the world.
 
Our teachers are specially trained educators who want to work at a school known for its academic excellence and emphasis on professional development. At NISL, your child will receive a rigorous education, based on international best teaching practices, provided by highly motivated and qualified teaching professionals.
 
The English National Curriculum, and subject qualifications at IGCSE and AS-Level are recognised worldwide. You can be reassured that the education your child receives at NISL is transferable, respected and highly valued. 
 
Each year is an exciting opportunity for learning and growth at NISL. We continue to focus on meeting and exceeding standards to achieve the goals of our strategic plans, whilst constantly reviewing and further developing our academic programme and offerings. We are a results orientated school where every member of the team is accountable for supporting the students and their families. We will always seek ways to improve student learning, manage our resources efficiently and look for areas of partnership with the local community. 
 
As you continue to explore our website, please take notice of the activities and communities that grow out of NISL. We are more than an academic institution, we are a community based on mutual respect and relationships. 
 
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. If you are in the local area, please stop by our Admissions office and learn more about what we can offer your family.
 
Warm regards,
