The International School of Choueifat, or SABIS School Network, is a school system that began in the town of Choueifat in Lebanon in the late 1800s, and later expanded throughout the Middle East and around the world with the first UAE Chouiefat school opening in Sharjah (in 1975?). The Choueifat, or SABIS Education System, is academically intensive and rigorous with frequent testing, and a fairly rigid syllabus. The advantage being that students and parents who change schools during the academic year should find continuity in the material being studied, at all levels and in all subjects. If you're unfamiliar with the SABIS system, do some research before sending your children to a Choueifat school, or accepting a teaching job (as you should with any school) as the system doesn't suit everyone.
