MiSK School, Riyadh
This group of nine, private day schools in Riyadh for male and female students aged 3 – 18 years was founded in 2016. It is proud to be setting a new educational standard for Saudi Arabia, actively supporting the
Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
The curriculum is modern with a strong Saudi cultural heart and a global perspective. An accredited Cambridge International School, Misk’s progressive teaching and learning methodology is inquiry-based, focused on fitting the curriculum to the child rather than the reverse. To that end, the student to teacher ratio is no more than 4:1, and every student has a personalized timetable carefully designed to uncover and maximize his or her potential. By embracing project-based and experiential learning, and integrating leadership programs, the schools works to ensure students cultivate the character and skills they need to effectively apply their education in a real-world context.
The group produces students who can not only communicate equally well in English and Arabic, but who are also well versed in national and international cultures and affairs. They are encouraged to question and explore, to develop insight and moral understanding, maturing into young men and women ready to pursue future careers shaping and serving Arab society at home and abroad.
Currently, there are 271 students in PreK to Grade 9. Classes are co-educational up to and including Grade 3. In support of its planned expansion to around 1000 students, the school will be moving to an outstanding, purpose-built campus situated within the new Mohammed Bin Salman Non-Profit City, adjacent to Wadi Hanifa in Riyadh’s Irqah neighborhood.
The group is part of HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s non-profit youth development organization and shares its desire to cultivate and encourage innovation, and enhance the human mind.
