Schools in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Posted on Feb 7, 2011 1:27 PM by
Below is a list of all known private and international schools prevailing in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia that serves children from Kindergarten to grade 12 (K-12). Those looking out for teaching jobs, check out the contact numbers, email and website address  mentioned against each school, most of the websites listed have a career section included.

The most important question when it comes to education in the Gulf is the Cost. Most employers will pick up fees for one or two children; hence it’s always advisable to negotiate and get the school fees added into the remuneration package before you even sign the contract. Also check with the schools as some of them even offer discount packages for those enrolling 3 or more children.

It is essential that every school in the kingdom is to be licensed by the Ministry of Education. If not, it may be closed down in mid-year. Hence before enrolling your kids in any school, ask to see the Ministry of Education License. A non-refundable application fee is a standard procedure for most schools and some even require a seat deposit per student.

The description mentioned against each school here is just a synopsis from the schools official website! Please check out the respective schools website for more details. Schooling can cost up to SR 25000 p.a. per child. Make an appointment to tour the schools which interest you and get an idea how they are run and details of the fee structure.

If you find your favorite school missing from this list please drop me a note in the comments section below this page, Thank You.
