Manarat Jeddah International School (also known as MJIS) is an international school for both boys and girls (the school is divided into 2 parts ;one for boys, and the others for girls) established in 1977 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.[1]

The school offers both British and American curriculums to boys and girls from kindergarten to Grade 12. The school is owned and run by Maarif for Education and Training. The main medium of instructions is English with some subjects being taught in Arabic.

History

In 1977 Manarat Jeddah International School was founded by Prince Mohammad bin Faisal in order to serve the growing expat community in Jeddah, KSA. Since then, Manarat schools expanded to have several branches across the Kingdom.

In 2004, Maarif for Education and Training acquired the school and expanded it further, helping to unify the practices of all branches.[2]

Accreditation

In 2010 MJIS gained accreditation from CITA. CITA was later acquired by AdvancEd and so the school was re-accredited by AdvancEd in 2015. The school achieved a full accreditation lasting five years.

In 2017, Maarif for Education and Training became the first organisation in Saudi Arabia to gain System Accreditation from AdvancEd. Due to this, all schools run by Maarif are accredited for the next five years.

The school has hosted some of AdvancEd's global conferences.[3]
