The Past :
SIS opened at our Al Tareef Campus in the 2006/7 academic year. We opened with KG1 – Gr6 classes with the intention to add a class each year. The administration of the school at this time was largely based at Sohar University.
In the 2008/9 academic year the administration of the school moved to the Al Tareef Campus. Our classes had now grown to include Grade 8.
In 2009/10 the school acquired a large villa and area of land at Al Uwainat, in the southern suburbs of Sohar, and started a primary school facility. KG1 – Gr2 classes were relocated there. (The land is currently only about 30% utilized and offers great opportunities for expansion.)
In 2010/11 we obtained authorization from the CIE (Cambridge International Examinations) to offer IGCSE examinations. Our classes had now grown to include Grade 10.
In 2011/12 our Grade 11 class sat IGCSE examinations for the first time.
In the school year, 2012/13, we have introduced a school uniform that will be mandatory for all students, Grade 1 to 11, in February 2013. We have also established this website and look forward to putting the ‘I’ in SIS.
In 2013/2014 we sat our first As level examinations.
In 2013/2014 the School was taken over by OESCo LLC. Al Omania Education Services has successfully operated schools in Muscat since 2009. Their current schools are Azzan Bin Qais International School and Al Seeb International School. We are very proud to be the third school in this very successful group. Anybody associated with Education will tell you that both these schools are held in high regard by parents. They not only achieve excellent Academic results each year but they also have excellent modern facilities.
We are entering a huge growth phase and we are very excited about it. We added additional classes in most grades to accommodate the growth in numbers. We have introduced Urdu as an additional subject. The School currently do the full Cambridge Programme from Grade 1 to A2.The Bilingual Programme was introduced in 2015/2016 and we currently run it from Grade 9-12.
The construction of our brand new Campus has started. It will be completed for the start of the 2019/2020 Academic year. The new campus will be built in Muwaylah in Sohar and will be able to accommodate 1800 students from KG to Grade 12. The Campus is conveniently situated in the centre of Sohar and will easily connect with outlying areas via access roads.
The new campus will provide world-class facilities that include modern well-equipped classrooms, six Science laboratories, 4 ICT laboratories and two libraries. Students will have access to an Indoor cafeteria where breakfast and lunch will be available. The campus will also have an extensive Indoor Sports complex that will include a gymnasium and two indoor pools. There will also be an outdoor football and basketball area.
The future is looking very bright for our school and we invite you to be part of this exciting journey.
