In the final report, the NEASC team expressed, “Many of the identified strengths are the unique balance of this school, which has comprehensive and complete processes, policies, and procedures, as well as an organic professional culture that is nurtured by the Vision and values of the school. This unique balance of structure and innovative freedom gives rise to and supports the strengths identified”.

NEASC has recognised SEK Qatar as an accredited member after having successfully passed its accreditation, which is a thorough objective process of peer review through Self Study and visits from NEASC professionals.

The Visiting team commended the School on the warmth and openness of their community and the depth of their engagement in the reflective accreditation process,  

“The school, while only in its fourth year, is already an outstanding educational program and environment. The faculty is talented, dedicated, and has formed an effective and cohesive professional community with a shared vision of excellence. The SLT is simultaneously collaborative and supportive, while still setting high standards of professionalism and performance”.

SEK Qatar Principal, Vivian Arif commented, “We are really proud of this achievement; it is a validation of the collaboration and expertise of our school faculty and a testament to the strength of commitment from our parents and the outstanding profile of our talented, globally minded students.  Obtaining NEASC accreditation supports our commitment to rigorous continuous improvement and certifies that SEK Qatar students receive a first class education that meets Internationally recognised quality standards”.
