About Azzan Bin Qais International School


ABQ Committed to Excellence!!!

Our school is a leading provider of an international style of education to both Omani and foreign students in Muscat. The school was first established in 1990, to provide Omani children with a quality education of international standard without neglecting traditional values.

Education is coeducational and bilingual, from KG to Grade 12, and our aim is to develop each child to his/her full academic, intellectual and social potential. The success of the school has been reflected in its continued expansion, and it is widely regarded as one of the top private schools in Oman. It is licensed by the MOE as an International School.

Good standards of discipline are expected and maintained, and students follow a hybrid curriculum, covering Omani MOE requirements and also components of UK style curricula. All students wear a smart and functional uniform, and a contractor provides a transportation service covering many areas of the city.


English is the main language used in the school, and teachers are drawn from all over the globe. Although the majority of the students are Arabic speakers, the school attracts a growing number of foreign students. An alternative program is in place for these students in place of Islamic studies, social and Arabic.

All students visit the on-site cafeteria twice during the day for breakfast and lunch which is provided as part of the fee.

The school offers an extra activities which supports students' all-round development. Activities include both individual and team building pursuits. Students may choose from a variety of options and get to try something new each term.

The school moved to its current location in the developing Bousher region in 2003. The premises enjoy pleasant surroundings between the coast and the mountains, and has ample facilities to accommodate an expected rapid growth over the next two years. The current roll is approximately 900 students, with a final maturity size expected to double this number.

As associate member of the BSME we are following the British National Curriculum content. Teaching and learning is benchmarked by our registration at CIE(Cambridge International Exams)where we follow the International Primary Program (IPP).

The IPP requires from member schools to follow the prescribed curricula and there are many opportunities for member schools to have access to teacher training, student academic level assessments and the Checkpoint primary exams that can be compared with the IGCSE exams for secondary.

Teaching and assessment is conducted under supervision of these governing bodies and ABQIS is therefore committed to a high standard of world class education.

At KS 3, emphasis is given to three core subjects English, Mathematics and Science based on the specifications of the English National Curriculum. The rest of the subjects which include Arabic, Islamic Studies, Art, PE and Music are based on a blend between English and Omani curriculums.
