It was established in 1966 as an elementary school. It was raised to secondary (S.S.C.) level in 1970 and then to higher secondary (H.S.S.C.) level in 1983. The school campus consists of two wings, one for boys and the other for girls facing each other located on Prince Naif Street between 18th and 19th crosses in the heart of Al-Khobar City.
