Waad Academy just opened its doors this past fall to welcome students. I recently had the chance to tour this impressive state of the art facility located in the Obhur area of the city.
This new school offers a brand new concept in education here in Jeddah, focusing on turning out well-rounded individuals by feeding the mind, heart and body. So in addition to academic achievement, Waad’s philosophy incorporates spiritual and physical well-being as well.
This academy has succeeded in creating a nurturing learning environment, using modern technology, creative designs, and delicious colors which sets it apart from other local schools.
The main building houses the administrative team, the beautiful and spacious auditorium which accommodates 1000, and the cheerful lunchroom.
Shooting off from the main building are brilliantly designed wings which provide separate boys and girls campuses, which will eventually serve students from KG2 through Grade 8.
There is also a beautiful modern library – which is "oh-so-much-more" than just a library.
One unique and creative feature of the school are its mega slides, which certainly help to make learning more fun at the academy.
The school's sporting and recreation facilities are extraordinary, including themed outdoor play areas, gymnasiums offering an assortment of indoor activities and sports, basketball and tennis courts, plus a soccer field, running tracks, swimming pool, and a rock climbing wall.
A host of extracurricular activities and a wide variety of after-school programs are also available to students. There is even a wonderful nursery on site for the children of teachers and administrators.
Waad Academy encourages the involvement of parents in the child’s education and progress and also invites the entire community to participate in planned social and sporting events.
The attention to detail makes it obvious that years of thought and planning went into the making of this institution. The future of education in Saudi Arabia is here and now at Waad Academy.
