Sanaa International School

Curriculum: The School offers a performance-based/mastery learning approach to education with a curriculum similar to that of U.S. public and private schools. AP courses are offered. Instruction, leading to individual mastery, takes advantage of small class sizes and the diverse educational backgrounds of the students. Instruction is in English. Arabic is taught as a foreign language and as a first language to Arabic-speaking children. French is also offered as a foreign language. FACILITIES:In September 1978, the School occupied a new building on a 34-acre site about 7 kilometers from the center of Sanaa. The building incorporates Yemeni architecture with a modern design and includes a library/learning center surrounded by 8 classrooms. Construction of a second new classroom building, including an auditorium/multipurpose area (for basketball, volleyball and badminton), was completed in the fall of 1992. The site also includes a soccer field, a softball field, an outdoor basketball court, a double tennis court, and ample playground areas.
