Dear students

Welcome to Wahat AL-Alson International School (A.I.S).

We are very pleased that you are joining us in A.I.S and we hope that you will be happy and successful here. There are plenty of opportunities for you both in academic work and other activities. We hope that you will use each opportunity and try to do your best in everything. Read this booklet carefully with your parents and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any of the administration staff.

 

Wishing you an excellent school year.

 

HISTORY

 

Wahat AL-Alson International School (A.I.S) was established in 2009 in Riyadh. It is an international Islamic school as it applies an American curriculum in teaching the subject materials as well as the Islamic education and Arabic.

As the world continues to increase complexity, A.I.S. is equipped with scientific labs, smart board, multimedia and a brand new computer lab. Such facilities help the students evaluate their study materials and enrich their information. Furthermore, students can practice various workshops of fine arts and sports.

 

Assessment Policy

 

The main object of assessment is to give accurate information about the student’s academic progress to the teacher, the student and the parents. The students are assessed through three components:

1) Course work

2) Weekly Quizzes

3) Quarter Exam

 

The A.I.S academic year is divided into four equal quarters. Each quarter consists of eight weeks. During the seventh week, the students will be examined in French, Islamic, Computer and Social Studies.  The eighth week is devoted for the core Subjects exams.

Grading Strategy

· (Homework 5 Marks – Class work 5 marks – Project 5 marks – Quiz 10 marks – Quarter Exam 25 marks  Grand Total 5)

 

· Behavior Mark is out of 50 and so is that of attendance which will be added to the final report.

 

PROMOTION POLICY

Students are promoted to the next grade according to their attainment of marks. A student requires a minimum of 60% of the total grand to be promoted. If a student fails to get 60% out of the total grand in any subject, he will be subjected to another exam before the start of the next quarter.

Code of Conduct

 

Every student at Wahat AL-Alson International Schools has the right to enjoy a healthy social and educational environment, which enhances correct behavior and stimulates his/her ability to learn.
This code of conduct is a guideline for students, parents and school staff members. Students are expected to observe these guidelines, and we do expect from respected parents to help us instill these policies in their children. This code of conduct displays the most important behavior elements students are expected to follow. Rewards are part of our code of conduct.

 

Attendance and Absenteeism

 

All students should attend the morning assembly, teaching periods, praying, and school activities. If the student is not present for any of the above mentioned, he/she would need to have a valid excuse from the parent to the school administration.

If you know that your child is going to be absent, please inform the school management by phoning between 7:00 – 8:00 a.m. If the parent or guardian does not phone, then a written letter must accompany the child on the day of return explaining the reasons for his/her absence.

 

 

 

The school day starts at 6:30 a.m. with the morning assembly. Any student who arrives later than this time will be registered late. If the parent expects his/her child to arrive late , he must inform the school of the  expected time of arrival before 7:00 a.m. in order to avoid recording of lateness which in turn could lead to  a deduction of marks of the particular subject period.
