International Baccalaureate


Welcome to the Primary Years Programme (PYP) at KIS.


    Al-Kawthar International Schools (KIS) is proud to be the first private French Saudi School in the Kingdom to receive authorization to implement the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Year Programme (PYP) in 2018. The PYP includes the foundation years from Pre-K to Grade 6.  Through the trans-disciplinary themes 
students study French Language/Literature, Mathematics, Sciences, Technology, Physical Education, Art, Music, Humanities and a foreign language every year, gaining a deep insight into the skills, concepts and ideas needed to succeed academically. All subjects are taught in French. 

Through the IB fundamentals and IB learner profile, students of all ages learn to become critical thinkers and effective communicators of their ideas and opinions. These foster them to develop habits that last through a lifetime leading to shaping a better world that needs caring, compassionate and principled leaders who take effective action.
