In addition to this we have a balance of internal and external assessments. DJS is committed in achieving its vision of competitive generation and as such participates in external assessment like NWEA MAP (Northwest Evaluation Association Measures of Academic Progress) to ensure that students have attained the required grade leveled skills and learning objectives.

We adopt the MOE standards for Arabic, Islamic Studies, and Social Studies.

As an American curriculum based school, we start with entry to Kindergarten at age 4. Our students study through to Grade 12, where they are awarded the American High School Diploma at age 17. The American Diploma is accepted for entrance by all KSA universities and is recognized by other universities around the world.
