We have already published an article on this blog for the selection of an appropriate school in Saudi Arabia. Considering the tough competition among schools, it has become difficult to search for a good school. I would strongly recommend you to read into this article before going down to the list of schools in Riyadh. “Factors to consider when selecting a school for children in Saudi Arabia”
List of Schools in Riyadh
British International School
The British International School located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is a co-educational school, catering for English-speaking children aged 3 to 18. We provide a high quality education based on the National Curriculum of England and leading to examinations at GCSE and Advanced Level.

Providing good quality education for their children is one of the greatest challenges facing many expatriates residing in Riyadh. For some this is achieved by enrolling children in one of the community-centred schools which operate here under the authority of the Ministry of Education (Foreign Education Department). In recent years it has become increasingly clear to the authorities, as well as to some sections of the expatriate community in Riyadh, that these arrangements were not meeting the needs of everyone. Many numerically small communities now exist within our city, which have not yet the size or ability to set up community-based schools. Their children need good quality schooling nevertheless.
American International School

As a school committed to excellence, we will educate and inspire our students to be responsible, productive and ethical world citizens with the skills and passion to think creatively, reason critically, communicate effectively and learn continuously.
