About Al Hussan International School (AHIS)

Al Hussan International School Riyadh is part of a group of four international schools which in turn is part of the Al-Hussan Group. The tradition of Al-Hussan education in Saudi Arabia began in 1956 when Sheikh Abdel Aziz Rashid Al-Hussan started the Arab Cultural Institute for adult education. In the following year Al-Hussan Modern Girls School, the first girls' school in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia was opened. Today there are nineteen schools and other educational institutes throughout the Eastern Province rated among the best in Saudi Arabia, with enrolment of over 7,500 students. Today his son Rashid Abdel Aziz Al-Hussan is the president of the Al-Hussan Group of Companies continuing his father's vision of education for all. The Al-Hussan International Schools is the most recent addition to the organization and although young in age they have grown steadily.

Al-Hussan International School is located in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia and was opened in September 1998. It has two separate divisions, boys section and girls section on the same campus, however, the pre-school which is part of the girls section is at a separate location in the near vicinity. A year later Jubail International School (JIS) was established in Al Jubail, JIS also consists of separate boys and girls sections. In June 2006 Orbit International School was added to the group with separate boys and girls sections, finally in 2011 Al- Hussan International School - Riyadh opened its doors. This was the first school to be opened outside of the Eastern Province. Al Hussan International Schools are English medium day schools, catering for the educational needs of students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. The campus is a purpose built modern facility which contains: four separate three story buildings which house the classrooms and labs.

A further building in a spacious garden area houses the Pre Kindergarten and Kindergarten 1 classes. Qurtaba is a modern suburban area of Riyadh and is being heavily developed. Riyadh is very cosmopolitan; however the location of the school has a heavy concentration of nationals from which the school draws its population. The Al-Hussan international schools in the Eastern Province are very well known for offering a strong and solid quality education and it is our aim to bring to the same to the Riyadh community.

Please please dont send you children here im studying here because i have no other option. The school is everything that i could write a novel about all my experiences. It says it is an international school but they have hired so many Saudi teachers, I have no problem with that but most of them have no respect for others and don't know a single English word. The school has science labs but never lets students use them even though we are in high school, I have been in this school from grade 1 to 9 for now and I only have been to science lab 3-4 times. They don't have art supplies and the one they have are not allowed to use. The school canteen is all junk food which is so bad and is sold double price here.the water fountains are dirty and only one barely works in the boy section. They also stopped putting tissues in the toilet. I have a school trip tomorrow and they won't let Pakistanis go, any nationality can go except Pakistani. They also won't tell the reason. The school has very less activities. There are very less sports i mean only football and basketball .T he buses are so loud and they wont turn on the AC and even when they do it's so bad I almost get sick especial in summer. They don't give you all the books and you have to use the online version of the books also the uniform are SOOOO BAD like so bad don't even ask plus they still take the pull payment. There is no clinic in the school the worse thing is that many people need it but they cannot go to clinic and also there not allowed to call there parents. The school was going so bad and then the gave everyone tablets to use and 1500 fine if it gets damaged. The WiFi is so slow it was like 2Mbps last time I checked and the tablets are very fragile the cases ripped the tabs bended the screen protector cracked. Now the school is going worse students grade are going down. Please don't come ...

Al-Hussan International School in Riyadh is definitely not the best. Firstly, the teachers, most all of the teachers in classes and out, are on their phones taking and making calls, texting, going on social media, etc, they also have their AirPods in when teaching. Most importantly, they touch, shove, and push the students without permission and consent. Additionally, the yell in the students face and sometimes even make them cry when doing so. With how much money we pay them let’s not start on how unclean the bathrooms are and the poor condition of the building. Let’s not forget that all of the “adults” in the building such as the administration, principals, supervisors, etc, favourite teachers when students should be their priority.

It is always tricky for parents to pick the right school for their kids. Do not rely on comments written on social media, all schools are trying to do their best. A fine coordination between the school and the parents, certainly helps both parties to reach shared goals for their child.

Hilal Almalki, in the last week

The school education system is excellent, however, the staff is rude, doesn't have focus on the parents, and the people who came in, you need to chase everyone for your request, and they are answering you while looking and focusing to their computers. When you reach them over phone, their promise (We will get back to you) and forget it they won't call you back. No one to escalate to, you need to raise your voice to made them give you attention and fix your issue.
