School Development Consultants (SDC) was founded in 1994 as an advocacy group for educational development; it was registered as a company in 1999. SDC is an international education services and consultancy firm based in Lebanon. The company manages the Learner’s World International Schools (LWIS) Network across the Middle East and Africa.
The LWIS Network is made up of nine schools in Lebanon, Dubai, Riyadh, Jeddah and Djibouti, seven of which were established and operated by SDC, whilst two were already existing/operational schools that were taken over and transformed by our firm. Six of the schools are accredited by the New England Association for Schools and Colleges (NEASC) or AdvancED and offer a tailor-made American Curriculum, while one school offers the International Baccalaureate-Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP).
The LWIS Network promotes life-long learning through learner-centered holistic education, individual care, differentiated instruction and the integration of technology. Graduates of the Learner’s World International Schools will be independent, critical and creative thinkers, team players, problem solvers, effective communicators, Peace Education endorsers and technology-able researchers who are active and responsible change agents within an ever-diverse “glocal” community.
In addition to operating the LWIS Network, our team of highly qualified educators continues to provide training, management and consultancy services to international schools, colleges, educational centers and governments across the region.
