Alex Pethan Vice PrinicpalAlex Pethan - Vice Principal of MS/HS, ISG Jubail School

After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and Biology from the University of Wisconsin, Alex began teaching Spanish, Bilingual Biology and English as a Second Language. While teaching at a large U.S. public school in Brooklyn, New York, Alex earned a Master of Arts degree in Spanish Literature from Brooklyn College. His time in the very diverse Brooklyn borough made him eager to join the international school ranks. Hopeful to gain experience in this new educational milieu, he was hired to teach Spanish at International School Manila.

During a decade in Manila, Alex also led the Department of Modern Languages and enjoyed coaching sports. Looking to play a different role in the international school community, he earned a Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership from Lehigh University. His experiences in international school education have solidified his belief in the importance of learning from one another as a global community. Alex and his wife, Marivic, are excited to live and work in Saudi Arabia after ten years together in Marivic’s native country, the Philippines.
