Pakistan International School Al-Khobar is merely a new name while the school has already been functioning for more than the span of a generation under the title of Pakistani Community High School Al-Khobar. 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.
The students of senior school and college have consistently achieved excellent results over the years and brought credit to their alma mater, parents and teachers. In the span of 4 decades many of senior students have obtained first, second and/or third positions at Pakistan level. Acknowledging the highest academic standard and excellent results FBISE, Islamabad has on many occasions declared Pakistan International School Al-Khobar as the best overseas Pakistani school.
We expect everyone in our school to make the most of their opportunities, to learn something new each day and to reflect upon their experiences. We expect our pupils to work hard and always try their very best at everything that they do. We will assist them, by providing them with the best possible learning environment and outstanding teaching, in an atmosphere of order, discipline and care.
Our philosophy aims to encourage students, in the best learning environments we are able to provide, to be confident, articulate, and actively engaged with the world around them. We want them to achieve their maximum academic and social potential, to be engaged and responsive learners – in other words, to be the best they can be. At the same time, the education we provide must enable our students to respond positively to the opportunities and challenges of the rapidly changing world – including the need to make the best of what they know and to keep on learning. Our students today must be prepared to engage with economic change, including the continued globalisation of the economy and society, and with the rapid expansion of communication technologies.
