The Philippine International School in Qatar (PISQ) is a stock corporation founded by Mr. Edgardo Basilio in March 2000. The PISQ adopts the Philippine curriculum for pre-school, elementary and secondary education for children of Filipino expatriates. The school’s ultimate goal is to promote the total development of the individual student so that he/she may become a useful and responsible citizen of the society.

The PISQ adopts the Montessori curriculum in the pre-school department. It believes that the approach offers the best tool in providing a carefully planned and stimulating environment – one that will help preschoolers develop the foundational habits, attitudes, skills, and ideas that are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning.

The PISQ is also registered with the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission and therefore exists as a private judicial entity under Philippine laws.


Education shall contribute to the development of God-loving, nationalistic and globally competitive citizens who will actively participate in building a just and humane society.


The PISQ envisions itself as learning institution manned by competent leaders and mentors who are committed to the wholistic growth of every student, under a tradition of excellence, in a safe and caring environment.


Equip every learner with knowledge, skills, values, and motivation for a productive and successful involvement in a humane and fast evolving society.
