About Al Faris International School

Al Faris International School is a fully certified IB World School and follows the philosophy and teaching methodology of the IB Programme, which centers on inquiry-based learning whereby students actively guide the learning process through inquiry and discovery, reflect on their learning and translate knowledge into action.

FIS has adopted the American Common Core State Standards CCSS in Math, English and Social Studies, and NGSS for Sciences. We currently provide McGraw Hill, Pearson and other textbooks and learning resources to meet these standards. Digital publisher Kognity is used by our IB DP program. By merging all of these resources together, FIS ensures that students reach their full learning potential through different learning approaches that build social and emotional learning skills, college and career-ready skills, and enhance problem-solving. This emphasizes the students’ role in the learning process, giving them the autonomy to explore, ask questions and share ideas.

Our curriculum includes the core subjects of English, math, sciences, social studies/history as well as Arabic, French, computer studies, robotics, art, and physical education

The school is fully accredited in all three programs of the International Baccalaureate: the Primary Years Program (PYP) corresponding to years PreK-Grade 5, the Middle Years Program (MYP) corresponding to Grades 6-10 (MYP Years 1-5) and the Diploma Program (DP), corresponding to Grades 11-12 (DP Years 1 and 2). Our optional American Diploma Program (SAT) is accredited by Cognia (formerly AdvancEd).

They have a very strong academic program. They follow IB system, but administration is really bad, specially at the girls section. Safety at school is questionable!? Way to swimming pool after school includes not very safe stair and lights are not turned on at night in the school yard for students coming for after school activities!!

The school is very nice and it's great, but the staff are certainly not the best. I went to take my first SAT trial there, but the supervisor was moody and rude to me for no reason. I had an awful time there, which is a shame considering how nice the school looks.

Poor school , looking for 300 SAR for student interview , they are running after money. Education and skills are the last , it is very expensive school with no value back.
