About the School

United School International https://unitedschool.qa/ is a newly founded school on the prestigious Pearl Development in Doha, Qatar, a residential development reclaimed from the Arabian Gulf. There is a combination of spacious high-rise apartments and luxurious villas currently housing a population of 33,000. When finally completed in two years’ time this will have risen to around 50,000.

It is a result of an exciting partnership between Orbital Education and United Development Company, a highly successful Qatari organisation and the developer of The Pearl. It is the second major school in the city of Doha to be established by Orbital Education, with the highly acclaimed and beautifully appointed Oryx International School established in partnership with Qatar Airlines, already operating within the city.

The school provides a British style of education based upon the English National Curriculum, whilst retaining the value of local culture and tradition within its curriculum offering. The facilities offered at the school site, combined with our approach to education, will allow the school to stand out as a leading international school in Qatar.
