A LITTLE BIT
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome everyone to this new exciting year. At Dawhat Al Jazeera International Schools, we pride ourselves on remaining true to our mission statement of being a school with a ‘Distinguished Education for a Competitive Generation for Whom Nothing Is Impossible”, and we have continued to do so in these unprecedented times. During the change into virtual learning, we experienced several positive outcomes that stabilized the uncertainty of the ‘New Normal’:
A successful virtual learning experience which we are still investing in as we continue to promote individuality, and independent learning even after ‘the return to school’.
Our inspirational staff have kept a steady pace of delivering a balanced curriculum that equips students with skills they need to be successful in a rapidly changing world.
Our students have demonstrated resilience and maturity; they have grown to better understand the world around them and not take matters for granted.
They have kept a realistic disposition and managed to adjust in a constructive and creative way. We consider safety a priority and a driving force to follow, health, wellness and safety guidelines. We are prepared to open our doors once we get the go-ahead from the authorities and will ensure civic responsibility to adhere to guidelines so we can safely reconnect and restore our strong community. Our program will be filled with safe active engagement of curricular and non-curricular activities. We look forward to a year of fun and excitement, and to better times.

Founded in 1966, Dawhat Al-Jazeera School (DJS) made a very humble beginning with a limited number of students, staff and infrastructural facilities in a makeshift area.
The objective of establishing the school was to impart quality education to the children of Saudi nationals residing in Jeddah. DJS has evolved considerably over the years.
At DJS there is a strong emphasis in teaching students to live in the Islamic faith. DJS is the place for students who are willing to accept the challenge of excellence, dedicated to becoming global citizens with pride in their culture and an appreciation for the cultures of the world.
In 2008 Dawhat Al Jazeera International Schools opened its international section and became full CITA accredited.
The School was first accredited by Advanced in 2013-2014. It provides a broad-based Pearson curriculum from KG- Grade12 with high moral values and total integrity with Islamic values.

A COUPLE OF GENUINE WORDS FROM THE SCHOOL LEADERS
The school has been accredited several times and has an excellent reputation. Teachers are qualified and experienced, they are always striving for new methods and techniques to engage the students while being supported and guided by skilled head teachers.
It is hard to talk about a journey of achievements lasting over 50 years. Dawhat Al Jazeera Schools are considered the first established schools in Jeddah in 1386 H. corresponding to 1966 G.
For 28 years I have been running this school as a delegated director by the Ministry of Education, and I experienced it moment by moment and saw it hour by hour. I have witnessed how it improves at lightning speed to the highest positions and how it takes everything that is new and developed and excels at it.
One of the programs that we are proud of is the “reading challenge program”. The number of participating students exceeded 50, and each student read about 50 books. This is an achievement for raising a generation for whom nothing is impossible!
