We are Indians moving to Jeddah by the 2nd week of January . My elder daughter is presently in grade 2( cbse-i ) syllabus and my younger daughter is going to be enrolled in kg1. Which are t best schools in Jeddah that doesn’t give too much pressure on studies. We are looking for schools that give importance to personal growth, activities, etc. the monthly fees can be +/-1000. We prefer Cbse schools only and primary schools with cbse syllabus are also ok for us. I have heard about IISJ, DPS , Al Wurood etc. Kindly let me know if any of these schools or any other CBSE schools you know fall in the above mentioned category? Please help

    Hi, We are a teacher (English) couple from Bangladesh. We want to apply for teaching in different Jeddah schools. Is there any agency/ person/ link we can communicate with? Or at least an official email address where we can send our CVs and will get back a feedback?
    Thank you very much.
    Maria & Nurullah


    • Hello! I don’t know of any agencies but you could send your CVs directly to school email addresses. You should be able to find these on the schools’ websites. I would recommend targeting the British and American schools first.
      Good luck!


  74. Faisal AlGhamdi on said:

    Hello, This is Faisal, I’ve been in the State for almost 11 yrs. My son has been studying for 5 yrs in the US. He is doing very well at school but his Arabic language and Islamic culture is almost zero. We are planning to return back home, Jeddah next year (God Willing) but I really concern about his education. I don’t want him to start from the scratch or lose his English with time or being isolated from his native culture and language. We need school that combines both E&A with Islamic culture emphasis. Is there any suggestion?

    Your help is greatly appreciated!


    • Hi Faisal, when you say you are returning home does that mean that you are a Saudi national? Because if that is the case you will also have a range of Saudi schools open to you like Dar Al Fikr and Dar al Thikr which I believe are good in English and strong in Arabic and Islamic Studies.

      Schools such as the British and American schools will be very strong in English, and maybe even teach Arabic well, but as far as I know don’t teach a lot of Islamic Studies.

    hello sir. m selected as a teacher in a school in jeddah. i would like to know how is the place and working atmosphere for a non muslim person . looking forward for reply. thank you.


  83. I am in the U.S.A. and have three boys: 15, 13, & 4 years-old. I finished college while raising our three sons so I just graduated last year from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. I have my BA in Cultural Studies and a minor in Teaching ESL. I also have my TEFL certificate from Hamline University (130 classroom hours). My husband’s family lives in Jeddah. I’m looking for an ESL instructor position as well as a good school for my children. I only have volunteer/student teaching experience because it is required to have a Master’s degree in order to land a paid ESL teaching positon…very frustrating since I need a minimum of 2 years FT and paid ESL teaching experience to be qualified for employment. It’s also frustrating looking for employment while here in the United States. I have visited Saudi three times and love my in-laws and the people there. I love hearing Adhan. This is something we don’t have and I want my children to be raised in an Islamic country. I speak, read, and write Arabic at an intermediate level. If anyone has tips on a good school for our children or employment for myself, please let me know. My husband holds American and Yemeni (Hadramout) citizenship so he is not a Saudi citizen. We need a work visa to live there. Thank you in advance.


    • Hi Layla, thanks for writing to Jeddah Blog. As you currently live in the US, my first suggestion would be to look at the American International School of Jeddah (AISJ), both for your children and for employment. Other than that you can try the Jeddah Prep and Grammar School, British International School (Conti), Jeddah Knowledge School, and some of the colleges for women such as Dar el Hekma and Effat College.
      Wish you all the best. Keep us updated on your journey.

    My bad experience with Al Maqased Int School – recommends Indians not to enroll in thier school as it is an arab community school and as TC will be given in June, British Curriculam with Indian/Pakistani teachers. Principal-As said (Indian) – v bad attitude and rude. Donot fulfill their commitments, have differences in themselves between Arab and Indian teachers – some say 10% discount, other say SR200 discount on full payment. They enforced me not to choose this school for my child.
    They write on their facebook page “” Among the top-ranking international schools in Jeddah”” – they are not, please beware of wrong statements.

      The fees in International Indian School is very less and affordable by many. The only drawback is the building donation they ask when admitting a child. I have a vague idea that they reduce fee for less fortunate ones. Pls enquire.
