  • Admission in BBA for daughter

    Assalam alaikum,
    I am residing in riyadh for nearly two years now. My family has been with me for nearly five months now. While my younger ones are studying Manarat, I am facing problem on account of the admission of my elder daughter who has already done her Intermediate from Pakistan with computers, physics and mathematics. She wishes to study Business/Accounting. While I have the option of sending her abroad, I would like to explore and exercise the option of keeping her here with me and see her completing her graduation from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I have been trying hard to find information which could help me in securing admission for her in some university but till now I have not met with any success..maybe my computer skills are to be blamed. I would be extremely greatful if someone could provide me guidance on this issue. My e-mail is [email removed] and contact is 0566134348..thanks and take care

    Assalaamu Alaikum,
    Your salary will depend on your teaching experience and degree. Depending on your interview / model lesson, it will be decided if your English Language Command / accent is enough to be hired with or without teaching experience. Al-Rowad International School has accepted and trained new teachers with little or no teaching experience. All international schools' are teaching in English. It is always best to come and apply in person with your cv.

  • The Differences between Al-Rowad and Manarat

    Manarat is a beautiful school (building), and it was something special when Ms. Jehan Al-Angri was the principal there.

    Al-Rowad provides children with an islamic atmosphere and a family-type environment.

    Both Manarat and Al-Rowad have Americans / British / Canadians employeed in the Primary Section. Yet, Al-Rowad has more native English speakers because we have a larger Primary Section. Manarat's Primary Section has limited space and can only offer 2 sections per grade level.

    Manarat International School / Girls' Section often has to replace principals on a yearly basis. Al-Rowad has a stable administration / faculty.

    Which school is the best? By asking online, you are receiving opinions. You must visit the schools and decide for yourself.

    I have worked as a teacher at both schools, and I prefer Al-Rowad (a more friendly environment).

    I am a British/pakistani and currently looking into Al-Manarat and Al-Rowad for my sons aged 8 and 4.I am also hoping to apply for a teaching position. Kindly explain my following concerns: from the al-rowad prospectus, I get the impression that the teacher and student population is mostly Arab, and overall, the student population is not multi-cultural. Is this true? Does this pose a problem for non-arab speaking students in terms of settling in and communicating with students and teachers? Secondly, what is the medium of teaching and communication for Arabic language and Islamic studies at Rowad? I would really appreciate your help. Which of the two schools is more suitable for british education combined with strong curriculum for islamic studies, and yet the environment is multi-cultural and there is strong communication in english? Thanks

    Assalaamu Alaikum,
    Al-Rowad International School is international with students from all over the world, and it is an Islamic school. Due to our location in the middle east, the majority of students are from the gulf area. However, we have a variety of students from other areas of the world. Many of our teachers are native English speakers: British, American, Canadian and South African. Most important... all of our teachers are practicing Muslimahs / Muslims. The Arabic Dept. places non-Arab students in the appropriate levels, based on assessments. Islamic Education is taught in Arabic and in English. Of course, memorization of the Holy Quran is only taught in Arabic.

    Presently, the KG and Primary Sections teach boys along with girls up to Grade 2 (female teachers).

    If you have further questions and / or would like to seek employment, please do not hesitate to visit the school.

    Rowad School pays well, actually a little better than other international schools. However, I cannot quote you a salary expectation, as this is the duty of Mrs. Sana, our principal. Salary offers depend on your degree, major, nationality, teaching experience and the vacant position. Most all of the larger international schools in Riyadh have starting salaries that can range from around 4500-6000 riyals per month. If you are interested in working with us, you should come in with your cv / resume' and apply as soon as possible.

    With all due respect and honour - I am really curious to know what does getting a job have to do with NATIONALITY.It sounds very discriminating actually.People think by being native english speakers or by being wth nationality from some western country they will be paid more.I am an asian i have lived practically all over the world - in NY,London,Antwerp,etc but I have studied from India Delhi i am a post graduate,that makes me less educated than my european or american or canadian counterparts???Just because I have a degree from my home country??If the same degree with or without experience is with a westerner she would be paid more than me??if she would be offered 8000 riyals i would be offered 4-5000 Riyals just because I am an Asian???

    With all rspect please take only the education and experience into account and do not take the nationality part because that sounds racist.

    There is no need to feel offended. I am far from being a racist. happy Actually, I should have stated that the salary would also depend on your accent in the English Language and not so much focus is on your nationality, as we are an Islamic international school. Unfortunately, many international schools and universities do hire (at a higher price) teachers according to the color of their skin, hair color, and eye color. Possibly because they feel that it is better for business... Americans teaching American books. However, at Al-Rowad International School, many teachers (non-native English speakers have mastered the English language and have little or no accent) make the same or possibly higher salaries than my own. We have some fantastic teachers from all nationalities.
    You are very welcome to come in apply.

  • School in Riyadh

    I have three boys currently studying in AlWaha in Jeddah and I am looking for an equivalent school in Riyadh. I have seen Manarat and not been impressed with the level of discipline. I observed tell tale signs of a collapsing order over there. I have been told that there is racism in King Abdul Aziz school as majority of lebanese teachers favor lebanese students. That feedback was enough to discourage me(an indian) from going there. I am looking for a good school with a good fair mix of nationalites among students and teachers that provides acceptable education (British Curriculum) and persues development of islamic values as its culture.
    Please advice if Al Rowad qualifies and if there are other options.
