Our educational programs are available to children of expats, as well as to locals. We teach in both English and Arabic. Our school's curriculum is of world-class standard. Many of our high school students go on to attend some of the topmost ranked universities around the world.

However, we also have an early childhood education program for younger learners. Our foreign language programs help those who may have an interest in learning Arabic or English, or who are struggling with either.

Best of all, we implemented the first iTunes University program in the Middle East. We believe this will have a great benefit to your child's education, and we write all about why here.

At our school, we are not merely focused on classroom learning inside our walls. Our extended education activities bring students out into the world to learn about athletics, community service, arts and music, technology, and other interests they may have.
