List of Philippine Schools in Saudi Arabia

In an earlier post, we shared a guide for first-time visitors in Saudi Arabia. We talked about the language, economy, culture, and other things that every newcomer should know. Today, we are going to talk about education… Philippine schools in the Kingdom, to be exact.

That’s right! Did you know that there is a quite a number of schools in Saudi Arabia offering Philippine curriculum? This could be due to the fact that there are many Filipinos staying in the Kingdom, including those who have brought their families to come and live with them.
