The school license has been obtained under the brand name "Taqwa". Taqwa is an Arabic word. It is the state of the heart that motivates virtuous conduct and prevents evil action. This trait is achieved through a combination of love and fear of the Creator.
You should be congratulated for being careful in the selection of school for your child. No doubt this is a complex decision, especially when there are several options in the educational arena in Riyadh. Taqwa International School is an initiative of academicians, parents and elders in Riyadh who are concerned about the imbalance that is seen in child’s education in these times. It is a common complaint of many parents that schools are only concerned about literacy and numeracy, and do not emphasize character development. It is true that our school is going through its first year. Every great institution you see today had its humble beginning once upon a time. We believe an institution’s mission, philosophy, and its methodology are as vital to successful outcomes as experience. We would also like you to consider our current state of readiness, engagement of professionals in the set-up of the school and the dedication of the people involved. If you would like to enrol your child based only on past performance of the school, we are afraid you have to wait to see our performance, and enrol your child next year or later, InshaAllah. We wish you all the best for your child’s career.
We do not have any branches in Riyadh or any other location.
The school has a long-term vision to educate and ingrain students with the essentials needed to live their lives in the real-world. We are committed to increase the grades each year minimally by one grade each year. More grades could be introduced based on the demand and availability of resources. Our academic program has been conceived with a strategic perspective. We believe that children go through a variety of stages during their school journey, with each stage offering unique opportunities and challenges. Our academic program is designed to take advantage of the opportunities, and to prepare our students to overcome the challenges.

Earning profits as much and as quickly as possible is not our basic aim. We will run the institution on a professional level in order to ensure that we do make profit and that losses are not incurred. However, the motive to establish the school is not to make money, but to provide an environment where children are provided quality education and ingrained with character traits that will build a wholesome personality.
Yes. The school offers an optional Quran Memorization (Hifz) track for interested students. Students at the primary level desirous of taking this track will be branched out of the regular track for up to two years to focus on the memorization of the Quran..
The classes and grades that are skipped by the students due to their admission into the Hifz track will be adequately compensated in the forms of reduced work schedule, supplementary materials and take home assignments. Such students will be able to re-join the regular track after the completion of the Hifz program.

Yes, they do. Islamic Studies is part of our academic program and mandatory subject for Muslim students. Non-Muslim students will be offered moral science education.
The school is open to all students from all faiths and nationalities. We are an equal opportunity institution. Parents and students who are not Indian nationals should take a note of our curriculum and also follow the Saudi Ministry of Education restrictions. TIS follows a curriculum that is based on Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). CBSE is an Indian board of education having more than 8000 schools affiliated to it in about 20 countries. However, the school may apply its discretion to select appropriate text books and supplementary readers in the lower classes that are compatible with its vision and standard.
The school does not follow State boards’ curricula. The school has chosen CBSE for the following reasons: 1. CBSE has high standards of curriculum development and academic assessment. 2. CBSE is a popular choice of over 8000 schools in several countries. This means your child can easily join another CBSE school if you relocate to India or another country.
The school gives major importance to character building. Discipline within the school premises and in the classroom is viewed seriously, but with fairness and compassion. The classroom teacher will deal with minor breaches of discipline. Major violations of disciplinary rules and bad behavior will be referred to the Supervisor, Principal and parents as appropriate. Use of corporal punishment in the school is strictly prohibited. The School intends to provide a climate that facilitates discipline and voluntary good behavior.
Learning at the School constitutes a major, but not the only component of child’s education. Students are required to follow-up the lessons taught in the school with learning at home. The Student Diary will provide a task list that is mandatory for the student to execute at home. Home work is designed to revise and reinforce the learning that has taken place in the classroom. It is the opportunity for the student to recapitulate the lesson learnt during the day, dig deeper and list down areas that need additional understanding. Parents are encouraged to provide assistance to the students during their home assignments, but should allow the students to act independently if he/she wishes to do so. The school is against burdening the students with loads of homework. Home work should not be meant to keep the student busy at home all the time. Home work should not be forced upon students when they are sick. Students should attend to their homework when they feel refreshed after recreation and eating.
The school believes students can perform well in their academic studies through attentive and active presence in the class room and follow-up of lessons at home. The school encourages parents to get actively involved in their child’s studies. The school has planned a ‘Weak Students Improvement Program’ to address students who do not perform well.
The school does not have such a facility at this point of time. Parents who need financial support are encouraged to contact school administration for guidance.
Discounts and concessions are available. Please see the Fees structure schedule.
The school does not provide breakfast or lunch. Children are encouraged to eat breakfast before they come to the school. Parents should send a lunch box for their child. Please refer to the prospectus for guidelines. The school will have cafeteria facility where only healthy food and drinks will be available.
No. All students except those taking the Quran memorization program must go through all the grades from Nursery onwards. Gifted students will be considered the jewels of the school and given the responsibilities like class monitor, leader of the debate club, captain of a sports team, etc.
Assessment at the school is professional, well-balanced and of high standards. It is possible for students to secure high percentages. Parents are recommended not to make an issue with the marks of the students who have performed well, but still short of the expectations of the parents. The important thing is for the students to understand what they are being taught and learn to apply it to the real-world.
The School gives special attention to cleanliness. Our policy is to keep the school premises clean at all times. Staff and Students are required to come to the school in clean clothes, socks and shoes. Hair and nails should be properly trimmed.
