Welcome to Dhahran High School!
Dhahran Academy was founded in 1962 as a non-profit, co-educational, day school for children of American Consulate staff. By decree of the Saudi government in 1999, Dhahran Academy set in motion changes to provide a full Pre -K through 12th-grade program with the addition of Dhahran High School (DHS), the first of its kind in the kingdom.
Dhahran High School is the premier college prep high school in eastern Saudi Arabia. Our staff is committed to providing each student with a world-class rigorous college prep education. One of the unique features of DHS is that we offer both an extensive variety of college-level Advanced Placement (AP) courses and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP). Students have the ability to participate in either of these rigorous options. DHS has very high standards for our students both inside and outside the classroom. Our educational environment is one that students want to be part of and are looking forward to coming to school. DHS stresses Academics, Arts and Activities for each of our students.
Dhahran High School is located in the city of Dhahran which is adjacent to the commercial and government centers of Al-Khobar and Dammam. The city of Dhahran includes the Royal Saudi Air Base, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, and headquarters for Saudi Aramco. The geographic area of DHS is the Arabian Gulf in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia.
I encourage you to visit our school by contacting us and discovering what makes Dhahran High School such a special place. We want you to experience our “Scorpion Mojo” first hand as we are extremely proud of our school and what we do.
Thank you again for your interest in DHS and please contact us if you have any questions.
