The Principal’s Statement

In the Name of God, the Creator of man Who taught man speech and eloquence, the Giver and the Gracious. Peace and blessings be upon the honest Prophet, the best teacher till the Day of Resurrection.

Teaching and learning is a collective process that is based on good planning where roles of all educators and stakeholders must augment each other.

As we realize that we are entrusted to carry out this great mission and shoulder this heavy responsibility, we do not consider our keen interest in the quality of education a luxury, nor an option; rather a supreme goal that we strive for and are determined to achieve.

Ever since day one, we have been working to achieve the vision and mission of Riyadh Schools in order to bring about the desirable change that aims at preparing a leading, creative and self-learning generation that is equipped with academic, social, and technological skills to be active players in this advanced digital world.

To achieve this goal, we are very keen to create a rich and safe learning environment that helps our students to maintain mental, spiritual and physical balance within the framework of our well-established values, principles and religion.

The High School is advancing in the right way to achieve innovation and excellence through spreading the culture of giftedness, encouraging individual initiatives and new ideas, forming partnerships, promoting integration between the role of parents and that of the community organizations, and carrying out various developmental programs. We also utilize guided investment of the available tools, resources, and expertise to boost the academic achievement of our students to reach a competitive level. Praise be to God, we have achieved high performance levels and quality educational improvement in the school, which indicates that we are heading in the right direction.

In conclusion, we pray to God and seek His help to guide our steps, help us achieve our aspirations, and guide us to what is best for the future generations.
