Round Square is a world-wide network of innovative schools in 50 countries across six continents sharing unique and ambitious goals. Students attending Round Square schools make a strong commitment, beyond academic excellence, to personal development and responsibility. This is achieved by participating in community service, work projects, exchange programs and adventuring, which can, and often does, take students half way around the world.
Round Square schools collaborate on a holistic approach to learning that is built around six IDEALS: Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service.
King's and Round Square
Since becoming the first Arab school to gain full membership status in the global Round Square organization in 2010, King’s has been an active member, coordinating multiple regional service projects and conferences, participating in various international events and activities, as well as receiving and sending students on exchange, in addition to many other collaborations with local, regional and international schools. In October 2014, King’s hosted the Round Square International Conference, in which hundreds of students and educators from schools across the globe participated.
