International Schools Group(ISG) operates seven schools in the Eastern and Western Provinces of Saudi Arabia. Depending upon the location and community, ISG schools offer similar, yet different curricula. Students in American division schools follow a course of studies based on a typical American curriculum. Students in the British division study using the National Curriculum of England and Wales. Students in the International division also follow an American curriculum.The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools has accredited all American and International division schools. Dhahran British Grammar School has been inspected within the framework of the OFSTED standards.

Our American/International division educators are currently deepening their understanding of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics and English/Language Arts. We are also part of Project AERO, through the US Department of State’s Office of Overseas Schools.  The British National Curriculum has been revised and is being rolled out in stages. Our British division is aligning with the new programmes of study, as well.
