Facilities at the school

Each of our nine school buildings has a library, art and design studios, science and food technology labs, Arabic culture hubs, IT suite, music room and a kitchen in support of the school’s “farm to table” initiative.

As students mature, the specification of facilities becomes more sophisticated. In STEM, the older students have access to specialised, multidisciplinary workshops for coding and robotics, as well as mechanical, electrical, systems and control engineering (mechatronics).

In culture and the arts, there are filmmaking and digital editing suites, as well as two black box theatres complete with high tech audio-visual production hubs and lighting rigs, while the culinary arts are supported by a Master Chef-style kitchen.

Whole school facilities include three professional-style auditoriums (the largest of which can seat up to 850) and an exhibition gallery for cultural showcases.

Sports facilities at the school

A total of 29 Summer Olympic sports are catered for, together with e-sports. Included are specialist academies for golf, go-karting, and equestrian. Alongside 25m and 50m Olympic swimming pools, there is a learn-to-swim pool, a sports hall with 12 multi-purpose courts, gymnastics hall, two FIFA standard synthetic grass pitches and two 400m Olympic athletics tracks. In addition, there are numerous outdoor and indoor areas for low impact exercise, all set in a landscaped environment planted with over 1,000 trees.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Misk Schools is a state-of-the-art, PreK–12 private day school for boys and girls in Riyadh that aims to prepare the next generation of leaders.

Founded in 2016 by HRH Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Misk Schools aspires to push forward the frontier of innovation in education, with a focus on approaches that enable students to grow into high performing, inquisitive, problem-solving learners who have the spirit to become future leaders and exemplary citizens of the world.

Teaching approach of the school

We deliver a personalised, international curriculum in English and all students are expected to leave us fluent in both English and Arabic. We teach using the High Performance Learning philosophy, underlining our belief that every student can be successful academically and in life. We place a strong focus on leadership, aiming to nurture considerate, inventive young people who have the mind-set and determination to make a meaningful contribution to their country and the world.

Our students prepare for Cambridge IGCSEs in Grades 9 and 10 and then follow an A-level or BTEC pathway in Grades 11 and 12. We are approved by the College Board in America and can offer the Advanced Placement (AP) for students who are committed to applying to US universities from an early age. However, academic qualifications are only part of their final Misk Schools Diploma, which also includes exceptional leadership and internship modules as well as Saudi National Identity Subjects.

We are ambitious for our students, expecting them to join the world’s most esteemed universities and university courses.
