School Academic Programs

School Program

The school follows the Common Core Standards (CCS) used in the United States for English and Math and Next Generation State Standards for Science. Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.

The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With these standards our students will be fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.

Building on the excellent foundation of standards states have laid, the Common Core State Standards are the first step in providing our young people with a high-quality education. It should be clear to every student, parent, and teacher what the standards of success are in every school.

Teachers, parents and community leaders have all weighed in to help create the Common Core State Standards. The standards clearly communicate what is expected of students at each grade level. This will allow our teachers to be better equipped to know exactly what they need to help students learn and establish individualized benchmarks for them.

The Common Core State Standards focus on core conceptual understandings and procedures starting in the early grades, thus enabling teachers to take the time needed to teach core concepts and procedures well—and to give students the opportunity to master them. With students, parents and teachers all on the same page and working together for shared goals, we can ensure that students make progress each year and graduate from school prepared to succeed in college and in a modern workforce. Using the common core curriculum evens the educational field for all students in and outside the country.

This cohesive curriculum would also ensure that our students are taught all necessary skills to get into universities and colleges of their choice inside and outside of the Kingdom, Europe, American, Middle East, Asia and other countries where American diplomas are accepted.

PYP Program

Among all the schools in Saudi Arabia, 18 were selected for KFF/IB Project (Developing learners, leaders, and teachers for the future of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia) and with pleasure Rand Schools Group was one of them.

By this spirited step, we will be connected locally and internationally with the family of IB world schools. Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering four highly respected programs of international education (PYP,MYP,DP,CP) that develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.

Teaching and learning in the IB celebrates the many ways people work together to construct meaning and make sense of the world. Through the interplay of asking, doing and thinking, this constructivist approach leads towards open, democratic classrooms. An IB education empowers young people for a lifetime of learning, independently and in collaboration with others. It prepares a community of learners to engage with global challenges through inquiry, action and reflection.
