SEK International School Riyadh is conveniently located in the Al Rabie district, in central Riyadh close to the Kingdom Hospital, with excellent travel connections via the King Salman and King Fahad highways.
Established in 1892, SEK International Schools are places where innovation and pedagogical leadership are combined with nearly 130 years of tradition and history to offer educational programmes of the highest quality. SEK has over 40 years’ experience of offering IB programmes, with an excellent record of IB diploma results and university entrance. Our aim at SEK International Schools is to provide a high-quality international education through the development of our students’ abilities to the highest level of their potential.
SEK-Riyadh will welcome its inaugural students in September 2021. We currently welcome applications from students in Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 4 (ages 3 to 9).
SEK International School Riyadh is a candidate school* for the PYP. The school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students. We will eventually be offering a full International Baccalaureate education, adapted for the Saudi Arabian context, from age 3 to 18 years, to ensure pupils can complete the best possible pre-university education at SEK-Riyadh.
Classes from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 5 will include boys and girls, and thereafter the classes will be single gender, for boys or girls only.
* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes visit https://www.ibo.org.
