Dear Edison International Academy- DH Community and Potential Community,
I have the extreme pleasure to welcome all our current community and our prospective new community members to Edison International Academy- DH – Qatar. As a British curriculum school EIA-DH prides itself on the development of strong, healthy, educated students. We celebrate our students’ development by providing a leading Early Years and Primary education based on a British international curriculum. We endeavour to educate the whole child keeping in mind the strong religious and cultural foundations of Qatar, so the students may reach their academic and personal potential.
One of the keys to achieving this vision is through communication and EIA-DH uses strong school management and communication that allows the school and home to work together to help our students flourish.
Our international faculty and administration focus on making EIA-DH welcoming, safe and secure. EIA-DH promotes an environment where students can achieve. We concentrate on developing the skills needed to succeed in the curriculum given, but also in our ever-changing world.
Important values like discipline, team commitment, honesty, trust, respect, fairness and flexibility are emphasized throughout our students’ educational journey. We truly enjoy seeing our students grow and develop into informed, viable citizens sure of who they are and where they come from.
We see EIA-DH as more than just a school; we see it as a home away from home where our students can feel empowered and valued. To our current families thank you for allowing us to nurture and educate your child. To our potential families we welcome any addition to our school community that will make us stronger, more resilient and able to achieve this important vision for our students.
