The goal of King Faisal School is to develop young people through a rigorous national and international program of study. KFS students are encouraged to attain academic excellence based on a foundation of Faith, Knowledge and Work in order to help create a sustainable, peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
KFS fosters respect for Arab Islamic heritage while embracing an international perspective which is vital to meet the demands of the modern world. KFS inspires students to succeed as world citizens and to be the best that they can be.
Students are our focus at King Faisal School. As an IB World School, the student as a learner is at the core of each program (PYP, MYP and DP). In the Primary School, we strive to develop internationally-minded and life-long learners who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect, and strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective.
Our vision is to provide for all students, a learning environment that:
• provides high quality educational programs, guided by skilled and dedicated teachers, using innovative teaching and learning methods and the latest technologies to promote excellence;
• encourages each student to pursue personal and academic excellence to his maximum potential in a caring school environment;
• develops a strong and productive relationship between our staff and our parents which recognizes the fundamental importance of the shared responsibilities of parents and teachers for the education of the young and which responds to the expectations and aspirations parents have for their children, and provides students with an excellent foundation for lifelong learning.
IB is a supremely challenging and rewarding program in a variety of ways. In King Faisal School, all constituents are committed to learning and developing international-mindedness.
Teachers, staff, students and parents are encouraged to identify problems and seek solutions in the pursuit of continuous improvement towards common goals.
Our classrooms are a place of variety and balance. Balance is seen in the attention given both to the pursuit of understanding and to the acquisition of knowledge and essential skills. Variety is evident in the range of teaching and assessment strategies and resources used by teachers to meet the needs of each student.
We look forward to joining you on our exciting journey ahead. Should you have any questions or issues, please contact us immediately.
We expect KFS Primary School to be a happy, caring, friendly and personal school and need your support to make this happen.
