Her insightful leadership, together with the indispensable, restless work of the talented administration and staff members, have insured the school prominent position in the community it serves and global recognition in education arenas. At Y.I.S. everybody highly counts. Yusr staff members are highly qualified with protracted experience with young, teenage and adolescent learners in a variety of teaching contexts and school systems. Many Yusr teachers have prolonged experience of teaching in Jeddah and the Gulf region; others are new to Saudi Arabia. This insures the School an important agglomeration of versatile experiences that help enrich the educational provision for our students. Yusr community incorporates stakeholders from all backgrounds. Our parents' priority is giving their children the best education they can afford. Our growth in student enrollment rate and staff retention has been so considerable that it testifies to our steady pace and continual success. Still, we do constantly review our strategic plans to insure that the students have the best and most up-to-date learning opportunities. Each Yusr community member strives to lay emphasis on the seriousness of academics as integrated with the physical, social, and moral growth of our students. The most significant task of Yusr faculty is to give an area where each student can attain his/her utmost potential. The school offers a number of services to all students to ensure that each individual student is given the appropriate opportunity to grow in a safe and education-oriented environment.
