High School

ZSIS High School offers a college preparatory, honors level program designed to secure admission to first class universities throughout the world. The curriculum is broadly based, drawing from the courses and best practices of American and International education. Our students are expected to study English, another language, math, science, and social studies throughout their High School careers, explore music, art and computing, at least to an introductory level, and to participate in physical education. Our curriculum is international because we provide both academic programs and counseling services that send students from every graduating class to universities in the USA, Canada, the UK, Europe, Africa, and all over the Arab World. We are familiar with many national education systems and make every effort to ease the difficulties for the students and for their parents. Furthermore, because families living an international experience often need to transfer their residence during the academic year, our programs and assessment system are geared to facilitate the smooth transition from our school into a new international school, or back to the home country system.
