Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The Advanced Learning Schools are private, English language, international day schools that offer a full instructional programme, from Kindergarten to grade 12, for boys and girls who meet the admission requirements. Twenty percent of the curriculum is studied in Arabic: Arabic Language, Arabic Social Studies and Islamic Studies.

ALS strive to create international schools in which attention is paid to the language, culture and history of the host nation. This means that, while local students maintain and develop their place in Saudi society, students from other countries are able to gain first-hand experience of the culture of their host country and all ALS students benefit from being exposed to variety, new experiences and differences of many kinds.

Teaching approach of the school

The ALS curriculum is organized within four divisions: Early Primary Years (Kindergarten – grade 3), Upper Primary Years (grades 4 – 6), Middle Years (grades 7 – 10), and Diploma Years (grades 11 – 12). Performance expectations for each division are specified according to standards and benchmarks recommended by the McREL Institute and the International Baccalaureate, with adaptations for the particular needs and expectations of the Advanced Learning Schools. Each standard defines the essential knowledge and skills students are expected to have acquired by the end of grade 12. The benchmarks state, in more specific language, the skills and knowledge a student should gain by the end of each grade. These clear statements of standards and benchmarks help to clarify expectations for students and facilitate better communication among teachers, administrators, parents and the larger community.
