With regards to children in Kindergarten and the first three grades, the School has adopted the class teacher system, in which all the core subjects are taught by the homeroom teacher.
The School prepares its students to sit for international British and/or American exams such as IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) and SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test). The IGCSE is a two-year programme, offered to students aged between fourteen and sixteen. These exams enable the students to join the most reputable Arab and International universities.
Extra support classes are offered for grades 3 through to 11 (AS level). These are primarily in subjects such as English, Mathematics, science and Arabic. The classes take place usually on Saturday morning.
