About us

The International Schools Group (ISG) was founded in 1962 to serve the needs of expatriate families living and working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. ISG is a not-for-profit, forward-looking school district comprised of five schools across four locations in the Eastern Province. The schools are coeducational day schools delivering Preschool to Grade 12 programs for expatriate children and a small number of students from the host country. Each school offers either a British or American curriculum and encompasses the following higher level programs: AP and IB (selected American schools) and (I)GCSE and A levels within British School Dhahran. ISG schools currently serve the needs of approximately 3,200 students.
