King Abdulaziz School is proud to be the first IB World Continuum School in the city of Medina S.A. Our IB journey began in 2015 and we subsequently became officially authorised to offer the PYP by the International Baccalaureate in December 2017. Later on, KAS achieved the accreditation to offer the MYP in 2020 and the DP in 2021.

Mission Statement

Our Mission at KAS is to create international educational experiences that cultivate active and lifelong learners. KAS aims to provide stimulating academic programmes supported by rigorous assessment, and implemented through inquiry, in a caring and nurturing learning environment. Learners are equipped with the skills they need to reach their full potential and become responsible global citizens. KAS prepares students to be open to other perspectives, values and traditions whilst recognizing their own identity and taking pride in their cultural heritage.

Primary Years Programme at KAS

At KAS, we offer an inquiry-based, transdisciplinary curriculum framework that builds conceptual understanding and enables sound skill development. We focus on providing the best educational practices, having both local and global significance. In line with IB learning, our PYP students are open to the perspectives, values and traditions of others, whilst at the same time appreciating their own identities, and being proud of their cultural heritage.

Middle Years Programme at KAS

As our learners mature from transdisciplinary learning in the PYP into interdisciplinary learning in the MYP, they become more responsible and reflective of their own learning experiences through engaging in the inquiry cycle. Our student-centered approach ensures the empowerment and development of students ready to embark on further education as critical independent thinkers in the DP.

The Diploma Programme at KAS

Our experience with the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at KAS has enabled us to combine the interdisciplinary and robust subject disciplines in the IB Diploma, whilst maintaining the breadth and depth structure of the curriculum.

To the wider school community, here are our firm commitments in our provision of teaching, learning and interactions in our IB Diploma curriculums:

  • Structured and balanced curriculum
  • Experienced teachers
  • Coherent and deep learning
  • Rich and relevant resources for teaching and learning
