About Safir International School

At Safir International School we use the English language as the main language of instruction. We also teach the Arabic language since most of our students are Arabs. We teach the Turkish language as a third language which allows our students to mingle and enjoy the country they are living in. We offer an American program to our Pre-K to Grade 12 students that is based on California State Standards. We use inquiry-based and hands-on activities to deliver our curriculum. Our teachers use a variety of teaching and assessment methods in order to meet the needs of our students.

We have a learning support program in order to differentiate instruction for our students that is based on their abilities and needs. Our students enjoy modern facilities including science labs, computer labs, gym, sports facilities, library and well-equipped classrooms. By the time our students graduate from high school, they will earn an American High School Diploma and they would have learned the concepts and skills that will allow them to succeed in colleges and later on as they start their career journey. We care about the overall well-being of our students; this is why we make sure we take care of their academic, social and emotional needs. We also work on our students’ character building by instilling in them the Islamic values.

In addition to teaching the core subjects, English, Math, Science and Social Studies, we teach the following subjects: Holy Quran, Islamic Studies, Islamic History, Arabic, Turkish, Art, Music, Physical Education and Computer & IT.

They accused my son of cheating and they take phones for 2 weeks if you are late to class. Worst school in the country and it is overpriced. They kick you out of the class if you say answer without asking for permission. Don't apply to this school, thank you

I am happy to register my child in this school. My kid is learning English, Turkish, and Arabic; alongside other core subjects and important computer skills, and character building skills, which I have never seen introduced in a learning environment before. I would like to thank all the staff, teachers and administrators of Safir International School for nurturing, teaching, and mentoring my child.
