Our History

Education Castle International School (earlier known as Banoo Iqraa International School)
opened its doors as an international school in the year 2013, providing students with a quality curriculum based on the Common Core State Standards Initiative – an educational initiative in the United States that details  what K–12 students should know at the end of each grade.  

Our School is only a five-year-old educational establishment taking tremendous ambitious leaps toward success in this field.  The school is very reputable in the Riyadh area, and it has seen a yearly increase in the number of the students.    

Our Mission and Vision

 Our goal is to produce students who are well-trained to face the academic and intellectual challenges of a rapidly-changing world.

We seek to produce ‘empowered learners’ – where empowerment is defined as “the process of creating intrinsic task motivation by providing an environment and tasks which increase one’s sense of self-efficacy and energy.” 

(Frymier, Shulman and Houser, pp. 182-3).

We hope to achieve this by giving students learning experiences that meet their personal needs and by equipping them with tools they need in order to succeed.

We hope to accomplish this by: 

– clarifying expectations

– making learning meaningful

– supporting students’ efforts by identifying relevant resources 

– celebrating their successes  showing them how to learn from failures
