In 1997 ARKIS started with a small number of students and currently we have more than 2200 students enrolled. It is my privilege to lead such an exciting and vibrant school which offers great opportunities for our young students. My commitment to our community is to lead this school with much enthusiasm and passion to enable us to achieve our mission providing our students with a well-balanced quality education that focuses on developing inquisitive and morally elevated international individuals.
As the principal of Abdul Rahman Kanoo International School, it is my pleasure to welcome and introduce you to our school website. This website provides an enhanced user-friendly experience to the parents, students and visitors to view all school related information and access to current newsletters, circulars, calendars and specially our distinctive photo gallery to witness the wonderful achievements of our students and demonstrate their transformation towards becoming a more principled citizen in a global community.
As the African proverb goes “It takes a village to raise a child” is one that stands true for me together with the exceptional quality of our dedicated staff, support from parents and nurturing relationships with our students that makes us stand out and make a difference to every single child that enters through our doors. Together we are strong!
We are proud to announce that our achievements are being accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and New England Association of School and Colleges (NEASC). Our school is certified as a Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) Centre; where the Cambridge International Primary Programme (CIPP) is implemented in both Pre and Elementary Schools along with International Primary Curriculum. The Cambridge Secondary and the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) programmes are implemented in the Middle and High Schools respectively. The school is authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) for its Diploma Programme.
We as a school are privileged to be a part of our students’ learning experience and development. I welcome all parents, students and staff members to actively contribute towards future improvements at ARKIS.
