SEK International School Riyadh opened its doors in September 2021, thereby establishing the second prestigious SEK Education Group international school in the Middle East. SEK Group boasts over 130 years of history and experience in international education across five countries.
SEK-Riyadh builds on the experience and legacy of our innovative group of schools. SEK Education Group has excelled in providing outstanding international education to local and international communities in Spain, France, Ireland and Qatar, and so does SEK-Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.
We currently welcome students from Nursery (age 2 years) to Grade 8 (age 14 years) and will be opening more Middle School classes in the upcoming years. The school today caters for students from over 50 nationalities. The teaching staff represents more than 20 different nationalities.
At SEK our main goal is to prepare students to direct their futures and to become lifelong learners. To demonstrate our commitment toward this ambitious goal, SEK-Riyadh has received its authorisation for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and is currently in the authorisation process for the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and will do so for the Diploma Programme (DP) in the coming months. SEK has over 40 years of experience offering IB programmes, with an outstanding record in IB Diploma results and university entrance exams. SEK-Riyadh has also started the process of international accreditation with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), to ensure we meet demanding international education standards.
At SEK-Riyadh, we place a significant emphasis on the holistic development of our students, prioritizing excellence in Technology Education (TechEd), sports, and the arts. We believe in fostering a well-rounded educational experience that not only encompasses academic achievements but also nurtures skills, creativity, and physical well-being. Our commitment to providing a diverse and enriching environment is reflected in our dedicated focus on these three pillars - TechEd for cutting-edge technological skills, sports for physical fitness and teamwork, and the arts for fostering creativity and self-expression. Through these avenues, we aim to empower our students with a comprehensive set of skills and experiences that will contribute to their personal and academic growth.
Like other SEK International Schools, SEK-Riyadh embraces the SEK Future Learning Model, which stems from a natural evolution of our innovative Intelligent Classroom method and focuses on student learning and staff professional development. Therefore, our students and our dedicated international team of teachers will become a community of learners, working together to prepare young people for the challenges of tomorrow, and encouraging each other to think critically and independently.
