Kingdom School currently teaches two curricula – the Saudi National Curriculum Program (Grade 10 to 12) and an International Program from KG that leads to the American Diploma in Grades 9-12.

There are seven (7) schools that make up Kingdom School:

  1. KG
  2. Girls' Elementary, Grades 1-6 girls & 1-3 Boys: International Program
  3. Girls' High School, Grades 7-12: International /American Diploma Program
  4. Girls' High School, Grades 10-12: National Curriculum Program 
  5. Boys' Elementary, Grades 4-6: International Program
  6. Boys' International High School 7-12: International /American Diploma Program
  7. Boys' National High School 10-12: National Curriculum Program

Girls and boys can be educated together up to and including Grade 3.

Therefore, boys are educated on the girls` campus in KG and girls` elementary. As per the KS Strategic Plan, 2015 -16 was the final year in which the Saudi National Program was offered to students in grades 1 -8. From this point onward, the Saudi Curriculum Program will be phased out schoolwide until KS offers only the International Program in the academic year 2020-2021.
