I consider myself extremely lucky that I chose to send my eldest son, who was then followed by his other siblings, to study at the International School of Choueifat. It was the best decision I made concerning my kids both because of the quality of education they have received and the school’s influence on their overall character and personality development.
The SABIS® system is impressive on a number of levels. First, it is strong on fundamentals (mathematics, reading and writing), which provides students a solid foundation and capability for independent learning. Second, the SABIS® learning materials (textbooks, workbooks, laboratories, etc.) are excellent in content, structure and sequence, which make the learning process fruitful but also exciting. In addition to the content of the curriculum, which stresses breath as well as depth of knowledge and skills, the SABIS® learning system is unique in its emphasis on continuous assessment and tracking of student performance - parents always know how their kids are performing. Finally, SABIS® provides a rich learning environment that is safe and warm, promotes creativity, and builds confidence and a sense of responsibility. I admire the sense of self-worth that graduates of the SABIS® system possess. Finally, graduates of the SABIS® system, including my own son, recognize the importance of the quality education and learning experiences they received Choueifat for their success is in higher education and life.

What makes Choueifat different is that it taught me more than just mathematical equations and sciences; it taught me how to work well under pressure and organize my time effectively. Attending this school made me realize my full potential and discover that I have the capacity to handle a lot more than I thought I could.
This school provided me with quality education while teaching me how to cope with academic pressure, thus preparing me for university in a way I feel no other school could have.
Mahinaz Mohsen Graduation year: AY 15-16
Aspire, apply and achieve. Aspiration: This school has taught me how to always believe in myself by providing the perfect environment for me to strive for my wildest dreams. Application: Taking challenging courses and working outside my comfort zone, I became a dedicated hard worker that gradually realized my potential. Achievement: The SABIS® curriculum has amplified my knowledge beyond the standards expected. The combination of these three tools has manifested the strong personality I have today to be well prepared for the next chapters of my life.

As a teacher and administrator, I get to enjoy the rewards of teaching and the organization that goes on behind the scenes. Whether they are academic, pastoral or organizational, I give my all to ensure a beneficial outcome for everyone involved.

What I have valued the most about working with the KG Department is being able to watch each child’s growth over the academic years. I have been able to see the children grow in confidence from shy unsure children to self-confident, articulate students. I have watched children on their first day of school, arrive full of apprehension who develop into self-assured leaders. I believe my job is not just to mold these students academically but to develop their underlying potential and instill in them values and pride.
Ciara Walsh Infant AQC
Five years have passed and I still find myself engulfed with the drive to do more. From the football pitch to the stage, so much achieved, but so much more to do.
The International School of Choueifat has given me the opportunity to both educate and develop a generation with a country that is developing. Students continuously observe and draw influence from us as teachers, so it is a privilege to have such an impact.

هادي عزاري Teacher
نظام سابيس – رغم مرور أكثر من قرنٍ على تأسيسه – فهو نظامٌ أكاديميٌّ حديثٌ تطبَّقُ فيه أحدث الطّرائق البيداغوجيّة من معلّم الظّل و قائد المجموعة و هذا من شأنه أن يحفّز الطّلاّب و يخفّف عبء المعلّم بدرجةٍ كبيرةٍ.اضف الى ذلك أن نظام سابيس الرّائع يسعى إلى تحقيق نتائج مع كلِّ طالبٍ مهما اختلفت درجة استيعابه أو درجة ذكائه، عن طريق الامتحانات المستمرّة الّتي تمكّن الطّالب من معرفة أخطائه درساً بدرسٍ و تمكّن المعلّم أيضاً من معرفة مدى استيعاب طلاّبه لكلِّ مفهومٍ دُرِّسَ و شُرِحَ.

SABIS® system is a unique system that indulges the students in the learning process and teaches them how to become independent members of a group monitored by a group leader.
Moreover, I have witnessed the use of technology through E-books and its positive impact on students by creating an interactive learning environment.

In my point of view, what creates the difference between SABIS® and other schools is its unique teaching methodology and academic curriculum.
The idea of weekly assessment and the competition between teachers create a sense of responsibility.
Second, SABIS® system helps teachers to overcome challenges by giving the proper tools and support to make a positive change and help weak students improve and excel.
Third, the uniqueness of the point system which allows the teacher to be organized, systematic and capable of proper class management

My career with SABIS® establishments started six years ago as a substitute teacher and that was a turning point in my professional life. At first i thought it was just a job, but i found out that it was about helping others. With SABIS® I learnt how to apply modern commutative methodologies to scientific information and update my scientific acquisition. In a word, working with SABIS® means promoting critical thinking.
Michael Boutros Teacher
“To be able to witness the hard work of all the prefects and how all our preparations came together was incredibly heart-warming. Altogether we created an event that not only raised funds for “Al-Noor’s association for the Blind” but we also grew as a school, bringing all our staff and students together for a good cause.”
Afnan Husein Student
ISC is a school system that has opened my heart to a huge community of amazing teachers and encouraging staff members. Our close-nit system with the other SABIS® schools also facilitates friendly competitions between the schools from all over the world that I had the honor to attend. These events instill the significance of opening up to new cultures and people.
Furthermore, the events arranged by the SLO have not only taught me vital lessons, but have also been a great source of inspiration.

ISC provides students with a strong background and the proper preparation to face life’s obstacles. Because of ISC, I am not afraid to step out into our world and embrace the challenges.”
Buthaina Al Zubair Student
One of the most exciting and best moments in my life were when the school arranged different events like Culture Day, and Fundraiser. These events help us to release mental stress and everyone enjoys them. Moreover the school’s curriculum balances our social life and studies. Teachers also helped me and I never thought that I would come so far. SLO also plays an important role in my social life as it helped me to be more open-minded.
Yousef Munil Student
Every day, I willingly wake up at 6 to get ready for the school. I always look forward to go and help in the school, especially in the SLO. Our school provides many activities such as Fundraising, International Day, etc.
These events make me more aware of what is going on in the school. I give credit on my socialness mostly to the SLO, as the crew helped me change my nature from a shy person to a socially active person.

“Joined ISC-Muscat in September 2009 and graduated in May 2017. I’m currently approaching the end of the first year of my degree at University College London, BSc Management Science. I’ll spare you the cliches of learning maths and the bases of language. I think the most important thing I learned at school was developing a solid work ethic. School was tough; you couldn’t advance much without discipline. What I developed through school carries over to any type of work I have to do now including projects, presentations, reports, and exams” Eyad Al Naamani ISC-Muscat Graduate University College London BSc Management Science

“I joined ISC-Muscat 2002 and graduated in2014. Currently, I’m a 6th year medical student at Oman Medical College. I have one more year left. I got to skip the first 2 years due to my AP results. I’ve learned quite a few things at school: 1) Time management - which has helped me get through the tough schedule of medicine. 2) Leadership - helped me acquire the VP of Internal Affairs position at the Student Council. 3) Teamwork - helped me participate and organize multiple events held by the student council at my college. 4) Most importantly, how to work under pressure without losing my cool” Manal Fatimi ISC-Muscat Graduate
“I joined ISC-Muscat in 2012 and graduated in 2016. Currently I am Studying Geological Engineering at the University of British Columbia.

It has helped me get through difficult situations with a cool head.” Qalb-E-Abbas Haider ISC-Muscat Graduate University of British Columbia Geological Engineering
“I think one of the most valuable things I've learnt in Choueifat is that persistence always leads to success. The school made me believe in my abilities both in academics and as a person. When I entered Choueifat at Grade 6 with a basic foundation, teachers and staff provided me with all the help I needed to graduate with exceptional grades and get to where I am in life today. Apart from that, the educational system in Choueifat made it surprisingly easy to cope with academics and time management at university. “ Riham Al Touqi ISC-Muscat Graduate RMIT University- Bachelor of Business
