Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Community Members, and Visitors to the King Abdulaziz School Website,

It is my honour to welcome you all to our school website. We hope that you find our website to be user-friendly and that you will have a good idea of all we have to offer. We are proud to announce that we are an IB PYP World School. In the meantime, we are an IB MYP candidate school pursuing authorization as an IB MYP World School.

 The Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP) provide students with learning opportunities to excel within a safe and caring educational setting that foster inquiry as a tool to generate autonomous life-long learners. We are committed to prepare our students to be open to other perspectives, values and traditions whilst recognizing their own identity and taking pride in their cultural heritage. We also strive to help our students to establish goals on their journey of college and career readiness.

Both the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP) focus on developing caring and open-minded students who take action to make the world a more peaceful place to live in. We provide our students with an international education that addresses the social, physical, emotional, cultural and academic needs of its students.

At King Abdulaziz School, we offer opportunities for students to develop an understanding of abstract concepts, to make links between them and to think conceptually. We support the students’ struggle to gain understanding of the world and to learn to function comfortably within it. In the PYP and MYP, students are provided with learning experiences that are engaging, relevant, challenging and significant, in learning environments that are stimulating and provocative.

As part of our vision, we hope to prepare students to be life-long learners and good citizens in a culture of shared responsibility. At King Abdulaziz School, we are committed to creating a learning environment that is safe, nurturing and respectful in order to foster and develop students’ knowledge, skills, and abilities. We understand and focus on preparing our students to be 21st century learners. Our world has changed and is constantly evolving. Our primary responsibility is student learning and offering all students the educational opportunities that will maximize their potential in this changing world.

Our goal of creating relationships within our community will continue.  King Abdulaziz School takes pride in nurturing strong, community relationships. We strongly believe that parent and community partnerships are essential in our endeavours to enhance student learning and achievement on the one hand and promote the school to higher academic standards on the other.

We hope that our website will assist you in learning more about our school. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me on [email protected] .
