If the 15 year old is in 9th grade, then he/she will go to Aramco schools..
Students in 10 - 12 will have to go to boarding school, be homeschooled or take a long trip to one of the ISG schools (International Schools Group), the Dhahran High School is one of those and you can see their website online. You can find their other schools online as well.
Another option is they go to the Department of Defense High School in Bahrain, they would board during the week and come home on the weekends.
Thank you very much for coming back to me so quickly. I really appreciate it!
I agree with you that there are no easy answers to high schoolers in UDHAILIYAH. My 15 year old should be in 10th grade in August. I guess we will have to take the painful decision of sending them to boarding schools.
My only worry with the boarding option is that Aramco doesn't cover the full cost through the EAP, that means we have to pay the balance ourselves.
Depending on the boarding school you choose, that is correct. Aramco only pays up to a certain amount and they do not cover all fees. Some boarding schools will have a payment plan, especially since you would be paying the Aramco part in a lump sum, they would probably work with you on the remainder.
