International Schools in Oman

Are you looking for an international school in Oman? You can find a list of selected schools at the bottom of this page. Use the search filters to select only girls' or boys' schools, prep schools, senior schools or sixth forms; or you can search for schools that offer a particular curriculum, such as the International Baccalaureate, the UK or US national curriculum or the International Primary Curriculum.

Oman had a very high score of 0.834 in the 2019 global Human Development Index compiled by the United Nations Development Programme, reflecting rapid growth in its education sector over recent decades. 

Private institutions take part in all stages of the education system and the historic kingdom at the mouth of the Persian Gulf is home to a thriving international school sector, centred on the capital Muscat and coastal city of Sohar. 

As well as schools offering the curriculums of the International Baccalaureate Organisation, the UK, the US, France, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, there are bilingual schools that follow both Omani and international qualifications. Coeducational day schooling is the norm. 

Oman has seven IB World Schools, of which six teach in English and one in Arabic and English. A total of four schools are authorised to offer the IB Diploma and one, ABA Oman International School, follows all three stages of the IB curriculum.  

International schools groups operating in Oman include Inspired, which owns Knowledge Gate International School, and SABIS, which runs the International School of Choueifat – Muscat. Both schools offer IGCSEs and A-levels, while KGIS, which teaches in English and Arabic, also offers Oman’s Bilingual General Education Diploma.  

Parents are advised to check that schools are accredited by a recognised body such as the Council of International Schools or British Schools in the Middle East.  

Public schools are free but education is not compulsory. In 2019, net enrolment was 87 per cent at primary level and 96 per cent at secondary level, while gross tertiary enrolment was 40 per cent. Oman has one public university and several private ones.
