A Message from the Head of School


Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 Academic year at English Modern School, Al Khor!

I am pleased to introduce myself to new parents and to reacquaint myself to returning families. My name is Joan Marie Larter and this is my 2nd year as Head of School at EMS, Al Khor. I am Canadian and I have worked as an educator in 6 countries. I have been an administrator in the Middle East for the past 9 years. Prior to joining the Al Khor team, I was Primary Principal at the EMS Doha campus. Each of these opportunities has offered very different cultural insights. I feel these experiences have allowed me to be more open-minded and have a better understanding of people of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds, both professionally and socially.

I am excited to be returning to EMS- Al Khor and look forward to another successful year, working with our dynamic administrative team and dedicated, diligent teachers to ensure your children get the best educational experiences possible.


Thank you for your continued support and collaboration.


Warm regards, 

Joan Marie Larter

Head of School
