Journeying with learners to success

Khaled International Schools (KiS), were founded in 1995, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. As leading academic institutions in the Kingdom, Khaled International Schools cater to both male and female learners, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, in a multicultural environment.

Delivering a strong American curriculum within a learner-centered educational system for 30 years, Khaled International Schools nurture national and international students from preschool to graduation, based on global English educational standards and a diversity of foreign languages, including Chinese. KiS also offers Advanced Placement (AP) courses to support learners at the next stage of their academic journey. In addition, KiS is a candidate school for the Diploma Programme. The school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education – that we believe is important for our students.

The schools’ leadership and faculty are committed to honoring diverse learning styles, guiding students towards academic, personal and social excellence. The schools are supported by their global partnerships and accreditations, being members of the LWIS Network and accredited by Cognia since 2013.
