Education

Education is mandatory for all children in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We take a look at the education systems, school fees and the Ministry of Education in the Kingdom. We have focused on expatriate schools, nurseries and universities in KSA and we have them all listed right here along with their contact details.

  • School holidays

    If you have kids here you will want to know when their holidays will be. Schools in Saudi Arabia only have two terms and a long summer break. National and religious holidays are strictly observed. The holiday dates may differ between the local and expat schools. The Islamic holiday dates will only be confirmed a few days before as they rely on the position of the moon.

  • Ministry of education

    an Education Management Committee was formed which established a single system of education, with different educational levels. The first primary curriculum was designed by 1354H. During 1357H a private school system was also formalized. Find out more about the Ministry of Education in Saudi Arabia...
