VALUES, CULTURE AND HERITAGE

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is home to a rich cultural heritage that has been strongly influenced by its unique environment. The country has undergone an extraordinary metamorphosis since the state was established in 1932. However, there is also a belief that the history, culture, values and traditions of past generations are the foundations on which the modern state is now built.

Therefore, to be founded in its DNA, the TPS US Diploma’s point of difference will be that the school celebrates and promotes the Kingdom’s National Values, Culture and Heritage through a carefully formulated and collaboratively driven education plan that is underpinned by a robust and contextualized School Charter. The US Diploma curriculum will be designed to celebrate this fundamental difference and immerse our ‘International TPS children’ in valid content that is characterized by its strength and integrity, which will be delivered by Teachers who have the capacity to instruct both explicitly and creatively within the TPS International classroom environment.
