The Mission

At One World International School - Riyadh, our mission is to develop inquiring, compassionate, reflective lifelong learners who respect all cultures and care for our world. We believe every child should have equitable access to best-in-class future-proofed education.

Every day at OWIS, we take heart in the exemplary behaviour of our students, which shows our progress in this mission. We praise the way our youngest learners help their teachers with small acts of kindness or in their excitement when they learn something new within classrooms and outdoors. We applaud our primary students as they collaborate with each other in our inquiry-based approach to push the boundaries of their personal knowledge and skills. We feel immensely proud of our secondary cohort when they show the maturity of character for in-depth studies and understand the importance of balancing academics and personal pursuits and giving back to society.

Academic results, while immensely important, are just one part of the big picture. Fostering a strong value system in our students that will hold them in good stead for the rest of their lives requires as much attention. All our experienced and passionate teachers focus on both these aspects at OWIS.
