Dhahran Ahliyya Schools (DAS) were founded in 1977 (1397 Hijiri) by Khalid and Sally Alturki as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing excellence in education in Arabic and English.

Starting with 56 students, 6 teachers, and 1 secretary, DAS has steadily grown over the past 40 years to an impressive student enrollment of 2,000 and over 200 teachers and staff.

By maintaining a focus on continuous improvement through personal and collective professional development of its educators, and remaining committed to persistent evaluation of our educational programs , DAS has established itself as one of the premier K-12 educational institutions in the country.

Inspired by the principles of Islam, the mission of Dhahran Ahliyya Schools is to empower each student to be a compassionate, thinking, lifelong bi-lingual learner who makes a positive difference, locally and globally.
