Teaching approach of the school

The priority of OIS curricula is to align with the school’s mission that states ‘our mission is to empower all students with the knowledge, skills, and attitude needed to succeed as responsible life – long learners’. Strong content knowledge fostered with enhanced abilities, and skills to comprehend and critique as well as to use technology, all help an individual be a life long learner. Also, the independence demonstrated through the learning process gives a student responsibility towards his own learning. Finally, developing an attitude of understanding other perspectives and cultures facilitates the life – long learning process wherever a person is.

Regarding OIS curricula for the subjects, it uses common core state standards in English and mathematics. OIS uses Mc. Rell standards in science, social, and physical education while in French Canadian standards are used. When it comes to Arabic, Saudi history and Islamic studies and as it is an international school located in K.S.A , it has to keep aligned with the standards of the Saudi Ministry of education.
