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, 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.
