  • Al-Rowad School

    I've been working at al-rowad school for 9 years. Ive been in Riyadh for almost 11 years. I am from the U.S. If you are looking for a good ISLAMIC, International School, go for Al-Rowad.. Not all schools are perfect in this country but Mashalla Al-Rowad International school really trys its best in everything especially they try to implement Islam in our school.

    Hi LA,

    I am thinking of applying to Rowad for a job. I have a degree in Business Admin - do they even teach those at the high school level. Plus, how is the environment for teachers and the work load. Someone I knew used to work at Manarat Al Riyadh - and they cram you with unnecessary work. I was wondering if its like that there. Thanks. Any input would be highly appreciated.

  • Al-Rowad Int'l School is a Good School

    I am an American and I teach at Al-Rowad Int'l School Girls' Section. The principal is hard working and a fair lady. I can only imagine that the negative poster experienced sour grapes, possibly due to their poor command of the English Language. The primary section is the best place in Riyadh to put your children. The school motto is Fun with Learning. I give my thumbs up to Al-Rowad.

  • stop wait listen

    Guys, if you're thinking of moving to KSA just remember that it's saudi first full stop. it is so blatant they will even advertise this way. they believe they are superior and as for islaam, it's a cultural thaing.
    Their sums are dogdy and they will hold your money in order for you to be controlled. practice how to beg before you go out there, it will come in handy. SELF INFLICTED SLAVERY.

  • really!!!

    I can't agree more with you earthling, this year teachers ran from saudi arabia(al rowad) It's a shame the brothers who are over there don't warn and prepare anyone. they themselves are probably alright because they never had much going on in Europe in the first place and so turned to KSA, there, all they do is go Mcdonalds.ironic!! They also get to become lecturers with basic qualifications like celta or the like and i think the status gets to their head. generally wahabbis finding somewhere they call home, nodding their head to a shake they don't even understand. good or bad, how can you tell, well theres their attitude and character.
