Al Nahda International School

Al Nahda International Schools have two campuses for boys and girls. Both the campuses are custom-made keeping in view the various facilities in sports, science labs, libraries, canteens, clinics, and mosques.


At the schools there are two streams: firstly, the British system preparing students for the IGCSE and GCE A-level programmes. The medium of instruction is English for all subjects except extra languages such as Arabic, French and Urdu.

Students take the IGCSE at the end of Grade 11 and GCE A-levels at the end of grade 12. The school has been prescribing students for these examinations since June 1988 and has invariably produced excellent results.

The second stream is called the American programme. The same syllabus as in the British programme is followed in English language, maths and sciences up to grade 9, thereafter students can branch off to a two year local high school diploma. Other students branch off to the American High School diploma where social studies, maths, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, computer and business studies are taught in English.

The school is accredited by the Cambridge Board syndicate, the London Board, the local Ministry of Education, the Council of International Schools and the New England Association of Schools & Colleges.
