Director/Owner Message


From the Director

Dear Parents and Students,

On behalf of everyone at Al Faris International School, I extend a very warm welcome to you. We take pride in helping our children to grow academically, socially and emotionally. We are committed to providing high quality, yet affordable, education at FIS.

Our curriculum includes a solid foundation of core subjects as well as courses of computer skills, art, French and physical education, providing your child with a well-rounded and diverse experience.  At the same time, we value the importance of our culture and heritage and emphasize a strong Arabic language course. We have integrated the latest instructive programs and technology into our curriculum such as the Daily Five Literacy Program, the Lucy Calkins Writing Workshop, McGraw Hill ConnectEd online learning and the Edmodo connected classroom.

We are pleased to announce our full authorization as an IB World School in the Primary Years Program (PYP), Middle Years Program (MYP) and Diploma Program (DP). The IB programs will provide your child with a stimulating inquiry-based and creative learning experience as well as instill the attributes for success in higher education and in the global community.

We believe that establishing a cohesive bond between parents, students, and the school bridges the gap between our children’s potential and their actual achievements.  We encourage parents’ participation, and sincerely value their comments and suggestions.

Warm regards,

Sahar Al Marzouki
