A MESSAGE FROM THE
Girls’ School Management


Khaled International Schools (KiS) Riyadh have come a long way throughout the past few years. Catching up with the 21st century teaching and learning, the school has incorporated digital learning, hands on and inquiry based approaches in its curriculum. Using the most recent editions of international books and online programs, KiS learners have widened their educational exposure and experiences.
This achievement would not have been possible without the support of the schools’ Board members, dedicated management team and devoted teachers.
The literature on organizations and motivation theories supports the idea that a happy individual is able to better perform in any field; therefore, KiS closely upholds the LWIS Network motto "We Measure Success One Happy Learner at a Time". We strive to get each and every learner to perform to the best of his/her ability which we believe will affect their attitude towards learning and provide them with exemplary education.

A MESSAGE FROM THE

Our learners regularly participate in debates and in a wide range of competitive and recreational sporting events, service learning and outdoor activities.
At Khaled International Schools, we believe that “We Measure Success One Happy Learner at a Time”, and ultimately, that our children are the cornerstone of our society.
Hence, providing these future leaders with the very best education is necessary.

INTRODUCTION


Welcome to KiS Riyadh where "We Measure Success One Happy Learner at a Time"!

Khaled International Schools (KiS) Riyadh Boys’ and Girls’ schools were founded in 1995 as private, international, English-medium, day schools (KG1 to Grade 12) that cater for Saudi and non-Saudi learners. The schools also offer Arabic as a first and second language as well as French for communication purposes. KiS are learner-centered in philosophy of education and multi-national in curriculum, staff, students and range of services.

KiS Riyadh are members of the LWIS Network since 2012. KiS offer a tailor-made American Curriculum and are accredited by Advanced. Both schools are under the supervision of the Ministry of Education.

The schools’ purpose-built facilities house an independent Girls’ School KG1 to Grade 12 where the Preschool classes in the Girls’ School are co-educational, while Grades 1, 2 and 3 boys are housed in independent classes in the Girls’ School. The facilities also accommodate an independent Boys’ School Grades 4 to 12.

PURPOSE & DIRECTION


At KiS, we aim to create a safe, flexible and nurturing learning environment where children, faculty, staff and families work together to enhance everyone’s cognitive, emotional, and spiritual development through learner-centered, holistic education and the integration of technology.

Guided by the core values of respect, responsibility, partnership and life-long learning, KiS will honor the special gift in each child and support every learner to become a contributor to positive change in his/her country, and in an ever-diverse international community of learners.

Khaled International Schools endeavor to have in the heart of Riyadh, distinguished, learner-centered schools that exemplify a collaborative and cooperative learning environment and a rigorous, caring learning community, where growth and life-long learning traits are inherent attributes to all young and adult learners. To have schools that educate and develop the whole child and exemplify equity among learners’ diverse academic potentials, learning styles, and social standings. To have schools that capitalize on partnership with parents, faculty, staff, and administrators to enable and empower learners to reach their maximum potential. To have schools that prepare learners to be active citizens in their own countries who can contribute positively in building our ever-advancing world. To build a learning community that empowers staff to utilize their professional training and provides them with ample opportunities for thorough ongoing professional development, personal growth, and self- actualization. To have schools that are constantly engaged in continuous improvement planning.

OUR
CORE BELIEFS


In fulfilling our mission, we will adhere to the following core beliefs

The ultimate goal of education is to cultivate in each learner a lifelong passion for learning.

Learners learn best in a respectful, supportive community of trust where each learner’s learning needs and abilities are understood and accommodated as fully as possible.

Physical and emotional health is critical to the development of each learner’s personal potential.

The school shares with families the responsibility for fostering in each learner strength of character, a sense of personal responsibility and an attitude of faith, reverence and acceptance of others.

The transformation of teaching institutions into active and cooperative learning environments is vital to ensure quality education.

Each learner’s academic potential is most fully realized through a challenging and varied multilevel curriculum integrating the latest technologies combined with the appropriate support.

Intellectual growth requires not only the acquisition of knowledge but also its application in analytical, creative and expressive ways that make learning meaningful to the learner.

Each learner’s life is enriched in a diverse community where differences among people are accepted, recognized and celebrated.

The development of moral leadership in each learner should include instilling a commitment to use one’s knowledge, skills and resources in the service of others within the community in order to promote and foster positive change.

The schools should serve as hubs for promoting educational, environmental, social and cultural awareness within the community at large.

OUR PROMISE


To develop an educational experience where they are actively engaged in a challenging curriculum that supports their holistic development as human beings.

To refine and enhance character education, leadership training and conflict-resolution skills, encouraging knowledge discovery and investigation skills in all learners.

To reach all learners by keeping abreast of the latest practices in instruction, differentiation and technology integration.

To insure that the standards of our American curriculum are continuously adapted to the needs of our international community of learners.

OUR STRATEGIES


To deliver our mission, our school will commit to the following strategies:

Learner-Centered Approach: We are committed to developing the abilities of all our learners, young and adult, honoring their different learning styles, multiple intelligences and cultural backgrounds. Each learning experience will be designed to cater for the learner’s individual needs with the goal of guiding him/her towards academic, personal and social excellence and an enthusiasm for learning.

Multilingualism: Multilingualism, which serves as a tool for international understanding, empowers our learners to become actively involved in our global community. Because multilingualism needs to be cultivated in young minds, we offer our learners three languages: Arabic, English and French. All our learners will be equipped with a strong command of two languages and a communicative command in a third.

Technology: We recognize the power of technology to transform learning into a more flexible, individualized endeavor required by today’s technology-based society. We offer learners computer literacy and interactive "anytime, anywhere” access to quality information technology instruction, empowering learners to use these skills to take control of and responsibility for their learning in school and, eventually, in their adult lives.

Values of Citizenship and Global Commitment: We are committed to providing our learners with an educational experience that encourages them to develop into respectful citizens of their countries and of the world. Through educational experiences consisting of human rights and international understanding, we will strive to instill in our learners respect for human rights and an understanding and acceptance of different people’s cultures and values, thus celebrating diversity. We are committed to the notion that our learners are citizens of the world.

Teachers: Our highly qualified, creative and experienced teachers will work closely with our reputable international consultants to provide learners and their families with a wholesome academic and social experience. Our teachers are suitably qualified university graduates, many of them holding a Master’s degree or higher.

Partners in a Community of Learners: We will create a "learning community” where learners, families, teachers and other members of the school community will work together in a partnership that will be the foundation for our success and that of our learners.

Continuous Improvement: Our school is designed to be a dynamic system, a learning organization formed of learners, teachers, administrators, families and the larger community that constantly work together to seek better ways to maximize learning for all.
