Middle school is a transitional period from elementary school to high school and is a challenging time of growth and change. 

Our middle school runs from Grade 5-8 and we follow a standards-based learning approach.  In this approach, a system of instruction, assessment, grading and academic reporting is used, and is based on students demonstrating understanding or mastery of the knowledge and skills that are expected of them, and are required for their progress to the next level of education. Our core curriculum consists of English, mathematics, science, social studies, fine arts, and physical education. All students take Arabic as required by the Saudi Ministry of Education.

Grade 5 and 6 students have the following electives to choose from: Visual Art, Digital Citizenship and Library.  Grade 7 and 8 students can choose from Visual Art, Graphic Design, Chemistry in the Kitchen and the Physics of Toys.  The electives on offer change annually.

Middle schoolers are provided with support and opportunities to meet their particular needs: greater independence, health and physical education, chances to participate in planning and managing their own activities, facing the challenges of growing up, exploring new interests and developing skills of responsibility and empathy. Their  ability to grow and develop will set the stage for high school and beyond.
