The ultimate goal is to eventually attain IB world school status retaining the American element so students can graduate with a US diploma and if they meet with the criteria and IB diploma too.

Customer Service is fabulous. I have enjoyed learning a little Arabic from my students and Arabic staff. The kids loved teaching the teacher. My students showed me on a daily basis their appreciation (picture, card, note, verbally). -LT
