This level of individualized study allows each student to thrive at the level that is right for them. Advanced students may be allowed to take a variety of university classes and gain college credit. KAIS says it is possible at KAIS, for a highly-motivated student to graduate high school in as little as 2 years.ame time, the school also provides support for students who need a lot of guidance, aiding them on their road to graduation, even if it takes 6 years.

In many schools, large class sizes prevent many students from feeling included; often, the highest level students and the lowest level students are left out of the learning process. At KAIS, no student will be pushed or left behind as a result of large classes. Traditional lectures are combined with personalized lab time which allows each student to complete their courses at the pace that best suits them.

The school says it “creates high school graduates who are effective writers, verbose speakers, and respected members of the international community”. Creative Electives will bring out the creativity and ideas in KAIS students, allowing them to pursue projects from film/video to poetry writing workshops to photography and music.
