Curriculum

At the beginning of each school year individualized learning plans are developed for each student at Renad Academy. These plans cover a variety of areas and are specific to each child. 

The following areas are used to develop individualized goals based upon student needs:

All classrooms have a total of 6 fields trips per academic year related to their units of learning. Additionally, each student participates weekly in equine therapy sessions with our Qatar Foundation partner - Al Shaqab Equine Education Department. Moreover, our students have the opportunity to engage in community based learning focusing on life skills development and social interaction within Education City and across the wider community.
