These new hights in academic excellence comes from the successful implementation of High Performance Learning (HPL) at Doha College. At the heart of HPL lies the belief that almost all learners are capable of high performance, and that by making this belief the explicit philosophy for the school and adjusting practice to focus on systematically building the relevant cognitive competencies, far more learners will become successful. Dr Steffen Sommer, Principal of Doha College, expressed his delight in these attainments: “Doha College students have often been amongst the best, both here in Qatar and globally. This year, we have seen the biggest number of our students excelling at this most notable level. Needless to say, we are exceptionally proud for them, their families and Doha College. They are true High Performance Learners.”
