About Us


Principal's Welcome Note

“It gives me great pleasure to welcome everyone to this new exciting year. At Dawhat Al Jazeera International Schools, we pride ourselves on remaining true to our mission statement of being a school with a ‘Distinguished Education for a Competitive Generation for Whom Nothing Is Impossible”, and we have continued to do so in these unprecedented times. During the change into virtual learning, we experienced several positive outcomes that stabilized the uncertainty of the ‘New Normal’:

  • Virtual Experience

    A successful virtual learning experience which we are still investing in as we continue to promote individuality, and independent learning even after ‘the return to school’.

  • Balanced Curriculum

    Our inspirational staff have kept a steady pace of delivering a balanced curriculum that equips students with skills they need to be successful in a rapidly changing world.

  • Our Success

    Our students have demonstrated resilience and maturity; they have grown to better understand the world around them and not take matters for granted.

They have kept a realistic disposition and managed to adjust in a constructive and creative way. We consider safety a priority and a driving force to follow, health, wellness and safety guidelines. We are prepared to open our doors once we get the go-ahead from the authorities and will ensure civic responsibility to adhere to guidelines so we can safely reconnect and restore our strong community. Our program will be filled with safe active engagement of curricular and non-curricular activities. We look forward to a year of fun and excitement, and to better times.

School Principal

It is hard to talk about a journey of achievements lasting over 50 years. Dawhat Al Jazeera Schools are considered the first established schools in Jeddah in 1386 H. corresponding to 1966 G.

Wafaa Ahmad Al Qadi

General Manager

For 28 years I have been running this school as a delegated director by the Ministry of Education, and I experienced it moment by moment and saw it hour by hour. I have witnessed how it improves at lightning speed to the highest positions and how it takes everything that is new and developed and excels at it.

Hanan Ahmad AbdulSalam

School Leader

One of the programs that we are proud of is the “reading challenge program”. The number of participating students exceeded 50, and each student read about 50 books. This is an achievement for raising a generation for whom nothing is impossible!
