Dear Prospective students and families,

Thank you for your interest in ϱ (ϱ).

We are proud to be the only accredited American curriculum school, based on internationally recognized standards, operating since 1957, here in Sudan.

We are accredited by two agencies, one U.S. based, MSA (Middle States Association) and one European, CIS (Council of International Schools). ϱ is sponsored by the US State Department and supported in Khartoum by the US Embassy.

For over 60 years ϱ has been providing excellent education to its diverse student body here in Khartoum. We live by our mission, which is to provide a student-centered, inclusive education to all our students. We at ϱ realize that not all students learn the same way; therefore we provide differentiation in our curriculum, so that all students are able to learn and thrive.  This is achieved with help from our EAL (English as an Additional Language) program and our SSS (Student Support Services) department. SSS will provide students with additional teaching and support in the classroom or in the SSS room.

Our school is made up of dedicated faculty and staff, hard working students and involved parents, all collaborating to achieve a common goal, namely the success, health and happiness of our students.

The faculty at ϱ is constantly attending professional development to keep abreast of new developments in education and the use of technology to deliver education virtually.  In 2018, our IT department in collaboration with the school’s administration had the foresight to implement virtual school days, to ensure our students do not lose valuable learning time, in case of an unforeseen school closure.  This was a program initiated by the U.S. Department of State - .

This meant that, in 2019, during the Sudanese revolution and in 2020 during the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, our students and staff were able to make the transition from on site to online learning seamlessly.

ϱ is proud that its alumni go on to attend prestigious universities all around the world, have successful careers and make a difference.

We hope to welcome your family to the ϱ family.
