Yusr International School, also known as YIS, is an accredited, private school serving both the local and expatriate communities located in Jeddah – Saudi Arabia.
YIS schools are co-educational from Pre-K until Grade 3 (In Grades 1-3 boys and girls are placed in different classrooms), and is then segregated from Grade 4 until graduation. Kindergarten consists of three grade levels (Pre-K, KG1 and KG2); Primary School consists of five grade levels (Grade1 – Grade5); Middle School consists of three grade levels (Grade6 – Grade8); High School consists of four grade levels (Grade9 – Grade12).
YIS schools operate legally under the supervision of the Ministry of Education “MoE” under the license number 520-3569 since the academic year 2006/2007.
YIS is managed by a team of professional, passionate and dedicated faculty members starting from the General Director, Heads of Departments, Curriculum Coordinators, teachers and support staff. At YIS, we value the importance of all our stakeholders from students, teachers, parents and administrators. YIS provides internationally-enriched, standard-based curricula where each faculty member strives to lay emphasis on the seriousness and the importance of education integrated with the physical, social, and moral growth of our students.
The school serves as an ideal site for teaching and learning. The school offers several services to ensure that each individual student is given the appropriate equal opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and caring environment.
The curriculum framework meets the requirements of MoE and the Common Core State Standards “CCSS” and Next Generation Science Standards “NGSS”. For the Kindergarten School and Primary years (Grades 1-5), the CCSS and the PYP learning standards were aligned in a unified curriculum map.
The biggest highlight on the academic path of YIS was achieving the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB-PYP) accreditation in the academic year 2018/2019 and becoming an IB World School one of a few international schools in Jeddah. Our virtual MYP verification visit will take place in the next academic year 2021-2022 in order to gain MYP accreditation.
The ultimate academic goal for YIS is to become a continuum IB World School by offering all IB Programmes (PYP, MYP, PD, and CP) and accredited by well-known international organizations.
