Choueifat has schools in most Middle Eastern
countries. It also spreads to Asia, Europe,
Africa and North-America. Most students are from
elite families. Their schools, where English is the
language of teaching, graduated many princes and
sheikhs in the Gulf States.
The International School of Choueifat-Lebanon is the
mother school of the SABIS group of schools. It was
established in the village of Choueifat, Lebanon in
1886 by Tanios Saad and Louisa Procter,www.ekurd.net
an Irish woman who was teaching in the area. It was
originally for girls only. In the 1890s Tanios Saad
visited England to examine the British educational
system. He led the school until his death in 1953.
