History

LSQ History

The Lebanese School of Qatar was founded in 1976 by an elite group of men and women who had their country Lebanon and the Lebanese expats’ best interest at heart. They invested their time, effort and money generously and without respite to cater to the educational needs of the Lebanese Community in Qatar.

These benefactors needed financial and administrative support, and were blessed to find it in His Excellency Abdalluh Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah and the Lebanese Ambassadors who have served in Qatar since the school’s inception, sharing the same vision and aspiring to make it a reality.

His Excellency’s incessant generosity, hard work, and his governance of the school’s Board of Trustees, have propelled the school into more prosperity and excellence.

This dream wouldn’t have come to life without the endorsement of His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani and his father, His highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani who have welcomed the Lebanese Community on the precious lands of Qatar, and bestowed the needed provisions that translated in Building B of the main Campus Dafna, housing the Middle and Secondary in the year 2014-2015, to accommodate the growing number of Lebanese students.

The Lebanese School remains on a progressive path in its achievements and expansion; the latter being witnessed in the opening of new campus for the French Primary in 2018-2019, thanks to the tremendous efforts of the administrators and the Board of Trustees and their leader.

The dream might have started in a house, but it has grown into two campuses, and the best is yet to come!

Superintendent’s Message

Chers parents,

Il me fait plaisir de vous accueillir sur le site web de l’École Libanaise du Qatar. Voici une brève présentation de notre établissement et de son cheminement.

L’école a ouvert ses portes en 1975. Une initiative prise par quelques bienfaiteurs qui vivaient au Qatar et par quelques hommes d’affaires libanais qui font partie du conseil d’administration. L’idée était de réunir les étudiants libanais au sein d’un même établissement et de leur donner la chance de suivre un cursus normal pour faciliter leur intégration scolaire en cas de retour au Liban.

L’Ecole Libanaise est pratiquement la seule école au Qatar qui a la prérogative de faire passer les examens officiels du brevet et du baccalauréat libanais à l’étranger, précisément à l’ambassade du Liban au Qatar, et ce, conformément aux exigences du ministère de l’Education nationale du Liban. Elle offre également à ses élèves plusieurs filières : S3SV, S3SE ou S3SG  en langues française ou anglaise.

Grâce à l’expertise de notre personnel enseignant, l’école a vite grandi. Actuellement, et après l’ouverture d’un bâtiment annexe pour le département primaire / français dans la région de Hitmi, il compte 2500 élèves, allant de la maternelle à la terminale. L’établissement  jouit d’une excellente réputation au sein du pays d’accueil et s’est vu octroyer le Label France Education ainsi que la reconnaissance de l’Advanced Accreditation; une reconnaissance formelle d’un enseignement de qualité qui ne cesse de se renouveler, grâce à une formation continue qui a pour but de développer les compétences du personnel éducatif et  d’optimiser les chances de réussite de nos élèves.

L’École Libanaise assure un enseignement selon les objectifs du programme libanais et garantit à ses élèves une formation qui vise l’excellence. En témoignent les excellents résultats obtenus au fil des années. Dans un même temps, elle tient à transmettre à ses élèves nos traditions et nos valeurs. Une manière de préserver notre patrimoine auquel nous sommes attachés, tout en favorisant l’ouverture et les échanges avec le pays d’accueil, le Qatar.

Nous vous souhaitons une bonne visite sur notre site qui, nous espérons,  vous fera mieux connaître notre établissement.

Bien cordialement,

Norma Dimassa
