The Advanced Learning Schools have been granted recognition
by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Education and operate under
the governance of a Board of Trustees comprising
distinguished professionals involved in government, commerce
and education. The Board of Trustees is responsible for the
development of the policies that control and direct the
nature and the mission of the schools. The Superintendent is
the chief administrator of the schools and is responsible
for the implementation of policies and practices established
by the Board of Trustees; the selection, hiring and
placement of staff; and the full complement of day-to-day
operational activities necessary for the effective
functioning of the schools.
The ALS campus is located in the residential area of Riyadh
known as Western Al- Nakheel district, north of King Saud
University. The current temporary facility is in a complex
of ten purposefully renovated villas and twelve temporary
classrooms. These provide accommodation for administration
offices, thirty classrooms, three science laboratories, two
computer science laboratories, a library, two multi-purpose
recreation rooms, two prayer rooms and a staff room.
Adjoining the original campus are a soccer field, a
volleyball court and a basketball court. In order to
accommodate two classes per grade level from Kindergarten to
grade 3, a new extension, next to the sports area, was
opened in August 2007. The Advanced Learning Schools’
facilities are currently capable of hosting 420 students.
Further building will take place as needed until ALS moves
to its planned purpose-built facility, which will be able to
accommodate 1200 students.
