History of Al-Hussan Education
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 10,000 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 are the most recent addition to the organization and although young in age they have grown steadily.
Our first International School, Al-Hussan International School Khobar (AHISK) is located in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia and was opened in September 1998. It has two separate section for Boys and Girls on the same campus; however, the pre-school which is at a separate location is in the same vicinity. A year later, Jubail International School (JIS) was established in Jubail Industrial City. It was our second International School, which consists of separate Boys and Girls sections. In June 2006, Orbit International School (OIS), the third International School was added to the group with separate boys and girls sections. In the Eastern Province our fourth International School, Al-Hussan International Grammar School (AHIGS) was added to the group on August 23, 2015.
Central Province (Riyadh)
Carrying the vision forward, Al-Hussan Education launched “Al-Hussan International School –Riyadh (AHISR)’ in the Central Province. AHISR is housed on a new purpose-built air-conditioned campus. It opened its doors to the students, staff and parents in 2011. The school has four sections, with separate entrances for Boys Section, Girls Section, Pre School and for the Administration Offices.

The Al-Hussan Education further spread its wings into the Western Province due to huge demand by the communities in Yanbu. Al-Hussan International School –Yanbu (AHISY); is the latest addition to the Al-Hussan International Schools Group opened on September 18, 2016.
