Ibn Khuldoon National School (IKNS) is a non-profit self supporting coeducational institution that is dedicated to providing high quality education for local and expatriate students. The school offers a bilingual programme of study for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. IKNS students can communicate in both Arabic and English with ease and lucidity from an early stage of their lives.

IKNS is an IB Continuum School that is authorized to offer three of the International Baccalaureate (IB) educational programmes from KG1 to Grade 12. The School was authorized to offer the IB Diploma Programme (DP) in 1990. In 2020, it was authorized to offer the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and in 2022, the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP).

The school also offers the American High School Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12 as a parallel programme to the IBDP.

IKNS students go on to complete their tertiary education in international and local universities, many gaining admission to prestigious institutions.

A diverse faculty, whether teaching in Arabic or English, provide a rich and supportive learning environment for students. The faculty is supported by a dedicated team of administrative and support staff.

At the top level of the school's governance stand the board of trustees, board of directors and specialist committees. Their members volunteer their expertise, time and effort to ensure that the school is always heading in a forward direction.

The school received its full accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) in 1994, and it continues to be in good standing with the association. IKNS continues to be rated as an "Outstanding School" by the Education and Training Quality Authority (BQA).
