The school secondary curriculum at EMS is based on the Cambridge Curriculum. Islamic Studies, Qatar History and Arabic Language adhere to the standards as outlined by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education of Qatar.

EMS curriculum is designed to meet the unique needs and abilities of the individual child to prepare him/her for IGCSE and AS Level Examinations administered by the University of Cambridge. The school relates much of its course content to the local environment and the rich cultural, political, historical and religious heritage enjoyed in Qatar. Instruction and communication is in English with the exception of Arabic, Qatar History and Islamic Studies where Arabic is the language of instruction for Arabic first language speakers.

As with the primary years level, the English Modern School is working to strengthen its secondary curriculum with research-evidence best practice instructional and assessment methodology. The balanced literacy instructional approach will enhance the Cambridge curriculum by placing an emphasis on developing our students’ abilities as readers, writers, conversationalists, and presenters – the pillars of literacy for lifelong learning. In addition, we use the Understanding By Design Approach, which engages students in inquiry – based learning. Students grow their critical thinking skills through the Understand by Design approach.
