Our educational philosophy has always been meeting the needs of individual students; therefore, our teachers create individual educational plans for each student in each subject to help in improving their academic achievement. We also offer several programs to help improve our students' outcomes; these programs include: support program after school, Qiyyas program, Mawhiba program, and the Harvard scholarship program in the summer.
In addition to focusing on academic programs, and to support the vision and mission of Riyadh Schools, we designed a program that focuses on building character and life skills. Martin Luther King Jr once said: “Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education”.
