DAS History

DAS is a not-for-profit, PreK –12 school near the Gulf coast in Saudi Arabia. Founded in 1977 as an Arabic school, it went on to achieve US accreditation from AdvancED and moved gradually to become a dual-language school (Arabic and English). In 2017 DAS was authorized to provide the Primary Years Programmes (PYP) from the International Baccalaureate. We are candidates for Middle Years Programmes (MYP) and the coming years are exciting times for us at DAS as we continue to pursue this authorization. DAS graduates hold either the Saudi diploma or an American diploma.
The school aims to develop compassionate 21st century citizens and to contribute to the development of education in the Arab world. As a PLC, DAS is absolutely committed to continuous progress in student learning. We have a sustainable strategy for developing our staff by involving teachers in an ongoing program of individual and collaborative professional development. PD courses are based on current educational research in the world that has been translated and made available in both languages.
