One World International School Riyadh (OWIS) is the most recent school to open for the Global Schools Foundation, a Singapore-based non-profit organisation that already operates in excess of 30 schools, primarily in Asia but also with branches in India and the UK.
OWIS Riyadh opened in September 2022, delivering the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) as well as an American Curriculum based on Common Core and Next Generation Science standards. This effectively means that the content will be from the US curriculum, but the teaching and learning style will be from the IB PYP, which is inquiry-based.
The primary focus is on developing polite, responsible and emotionally literate global citizens
Shannon Pipes, the Founding Principal, brings over a decade and a half of education expertise to her role and now leads a school where the primary focus is on developing polite, responsible and emotionally literate global citizens.
OWIS boasts ‘Smart Campus Facilities’ with world-class digital capabilities and child-friendly infrastructure, with the goal of ensuring comprehensive development for students, incorporating a well-structured education at a reasonable cost. According to the school, this assures that its doors are accessible to any student who want a world-class educational experience without compromise.
