SEK International School Riyadh, a candidate for the IB’s Primary Years Programme

SEK International School Riyadh is, officially, a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Progamme (PYP). The school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School to share a common philosophy -a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that SEK Education Group considers very important for its students.

Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

SEK International School Riyadh will welcome students from Pre-K (age 3 years) to Grade 2 (age 7/8 years), will showcase the best of SEK International Schools: education innovation, a unique learning model, top ranked academic results, and a clear focus on the many challenges and opportunities the 21st century presents to all its students.

As a Spanish education group, SEK will provide all the students the opportunity of learning the Spanish language, as well as Arabic, in a multilingual, English-based environment.

This is the second international school for the SEK Education Group in the Middle East. SEK International Schools offer education to more than 6,000 students, comprised of more than 70 nationalities, from 4 months to 18 years of age, in their campuses in Spain, France, Qatar and Ireland.
