Dhahran ahliyya school (DAS)

Alturki Holding opened Dhahran Ahliyya School (DAS) in 1977. Inspired by Islam teachings, the mission of DAS is to empower each student to be compassionate, thinking, lifelong bilingual learner, who makes a positive difference locally and globally. The school’s vision is to provide a world-class education while staying true to an Arab and Islamic identity through a facilitative learning community that is sustainable and socially responsible.

DAS believes that excellent education touches both the hearts and minds of students. It develops their intellectual, personal, emotional, and social skills to learn and work in a rapidly transforming world. Correspondingly, it should provide them with a sense of belonging in their own country while also an openness to their roles as citizens of the world, committed to taking action to help make their world a better place.

 

Commitments: four criteria for evaluating DAS educational programs

  1. STUDENTS FEEL safe in school, confident that they will be respected and not exposed to any bullying, physical or emotional, from faculty or fellow students.
  2. STUDENTS FEEL that what they are studying is useful to them all the time and interesting to them at least 65% of the time.
  3. STUDENTS FEEL that they are being asked to apply higher-level thinking skills to their learning and that they are not being asked to memorize only.
  4. STUDENTS FEEL that they can succeed in doing the work assigned and are confident that if they have trouble, they will be able to seek assistance from teachers who will help them LEARN and not just achieve certain scores.

Essential elements of a professional learning community

  1. Commitment to continuous improvement
  2. Shared norms and values
  3. Collective focus on learning and shared responsibility for students
  4. Collaboration
  5. De-privatized practice
  6. Reflective dialogue
