QASMT is committed to providing world-class education that nurtures excellence, fosters innovation and celebrates diversity.
The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the Academy works with schools, governments and international organisations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. Within our Academy we encourage our students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
