With the vision of the concerned Filipino community members to put up a school that would provide better education to expatriate students (Filipinos and non – Filipinos) in the State of Qatar, the second Philippine school was established in September 1999 and determined the name PHILIPPINE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL – QATAR (PISQ).
Henceforth, a 15 – member Founding Committee was formed to process all the required documents needed for its operation. By December of the same year, all other documents were processed and duly authenticated by the Philippine Embassy in Qatar which then forwarded to various agencies in the Philippines.
The succeeding months had not been easy for the group. Although officially registered with the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission on March 01, 2000, the school would not open until five months later. Hurdles and impediments emerged every step of the way.
Grounded by their commitments to the children of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) in Qatar, the school’s founders were not deterred in accomplishing their noble ideals. With immense assistance from its former sponsor, Sheikh Abdulla bin Faisal Thani Al – Thani, the school finally opened on August 5, 2000.
The Philippine International School – Qatar was officially recognized by the Department of Education (DepEd) Republic of the Philippines on the 10th day of July 2009 and is now owned by Rajih Shabeeb Al –Dosari.
And on February 8, 2018, the school was granted DepEd Government Recognition No. 001 s. 2018 to operate following the Enhanced K – 12 Basic Education Program which covers kindergarten and 12 years of basic education that will produce productive and responsible citizens equipped with the essential competencies and skills for lifelong learning, higher education, employment, and entrepreneurship. In 2018 the school produced its first batch of Senior High School graduates.
