International Schools Group (ISG), formerly Saudi Arabian International Schools (SAIS) consists of three divisions: the American Division based on a U.S. model curriculum; the British Division delivering the British National curriculum; and the International Division patterned after a U.S. curriculum with the addition of a National Languages Program offering Arabic, Hindi, Filipino, and Urdu.
ISG currrently operates seven individual schools in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Guided by the our district Mission, Belief Statements and Graduate Profile, ISG schools are student-centered. Our shared focus is further complemented by the diversity of our community and core divisional curricula as we work in partnership with the community to educate tomorrow's future leaders.
Our programs accommodate every level of elementary and secondary education beginning with Pre-reception or Pre-KG and culminating in full High School and Key Stage Four programmes. Students also have the option of enrolling in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme.
ISG's new Dhahran Baccalaureate Centre (DBC) also offers the IB Diploma Programme. Approved an IB World School by the International Baccalaureate Organization (www.ibo.org), DBC is organized under the auspices of Dhahran High School.
American and International Division schools are fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (www.css-msa.org) and Dhahran British Grammar School is accredited by the Council of International Schools (www.cois.org). This accreditation is accepted and recognized throughout the world. As a whole, student SAT10 standardized test scores average well above the US national norm. Dhahran British Grammar School participates fully in the British National Curriculum. "End of Key Stage" National Curriculum testing is completed every year with high results.
ISG students represent over forty different countries. The American and British Divisions are staffed primarily with Western-trained educators. The International Division meets the needs of a multi-national student population with a multi-national and highly-qualified teaching staff.
