Jeddah Knowledge International School (JKS) is a leading innovative school in Jeddah, known for its quality of education, well-rounded environment, and its commitment to academic excellence.
As a school, we believe in the importance of a well-rounded education that integrates a rigorous academic curriculum with the development of life-long skills, values and attitudes. Our staff strives to prepare all our students to succeed in a demanding and ever-evolving global society.
Our academic program strives towards “Academic Excellence” and it covers the American and International Baccalaureate standards of learning, supervised by our Heads of Departments, PYP, MYP, DP, and Subject Coordinators.
JKS’ buildings were built according to international specifications on a 40,000 square meter plot of land. It is fully air-conditioned, and equipped with security cameras, a fire alarm system, intercoms and a paging system.
All students at JKS have access to a strong support system. Individual teachers, dedicated support staff help and guide them.
The Middle Years Programme curriculum model is displayed in the shape of an octagon with eight academic areas or subject groups surrounding the tools and features which help the students develop their understanding. The emphasis is on the fluidity of the system and the interrelatedness of the subjects. Aspects of global contexts are addressed naturally within the distinct disciplines.
The framework is flexible enough to allow a school to include other subjects not determined by the IB but which may be required by local authorities. Schools may deliver the programme in any language under certain conditions, although IB services are provided in a limited number of languages. Taken as a whole, the curriculum provides a balanced education that will equip young people for effective participation in the modern world.
