In a review of current vaccine guidelines, ISG schools have decided to align their vaccine requirements to more closely reflect the vaccine schedule of the Centers for Disease Control in the US, the Saudi Ministry of Health Childhood Vaccine Schedule, and those of our peer school at Saudi Aramco. In short, ISG will require proof of Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, and Varicella (chickenpox) vaccines for all NEW students, in addition to the vaccines listed below. Current students are strongly encouraged to consider these vaccinations but will not be required to obtain them.
Welcome to the International Schools Group (ISG), a collection of international schools in Saudi Arabia. We are deeply committed to the mission of offering a challenging world-class education to our 4,500+ students across seven schools and five campuses.
ISG’s Core Values—Respect, Responsibility, Acceptance, Integrity, with a Commitment to Act—serve as a foundation for the learning experiences provided to our students so they can aspire to reach their fullest potential.
ISG’s not-for- profit status enables it to focus on the quality of education over satisfying investment expectations of shareholders. Funded 100% through tuition revenue, ISG is committed to fiscal responsibility while maintaining the highest of standards in its programs. In recent years, ISG has invested significantly in its technology infrastructure, allowing our students to connect globally and access a wealth of resources now available on the Web. A second area for focus has been ISG’s literacy efforts: writing, reading, math, information, and other disciplines that we know our students need to master in order to thrive in their future environments.
Whether you are a family seeking a school in the Eastern Province or Yanbu that deeply values a high-quality American, British, or international curriculum, or a teacher candidate wishing to find a school committed to the wellbeing of both students and teachers, you are invited to learn more about what makes ISG’s schools a special place to be and to learn.

Dear ISG Community:
We are pleased to release the basic calendar for 2017-18 (not this year's). Your respective school has released a version that is identical in start date (Sept 10), end date (June 14), and school holidays. The only differences between ISG schools will be early-release days and quarter/semester milestones.
