The High School National Boys
The Principal’s Statement


High school is one of the most important educational stages in student's life, as it is a transition from public education to higher education. High school is important for the admission to the university, where the student goes through Qudurat and Tahsili tests, which are two of the basic requirements for universities. High school is also the phase that shapes the student’s personality and determines his future trends.


Therefore, students should realize and plan for requirements of the high school, and this cannot be achieved unless there is a competent team of educators and administrators that is able to lead, plan, implement and constantly innovate.


In the High School National Boys of Riyadh Schools, we are proud as the school provides students with programs, courses and services that enhance their abilities and make them achieve their aspirations. In addition to self-development programs, academic support and e-learning tools and skills, we also offer scientific, cultural and sport programs that meet the students’ needs, improve their skills, and take them to the 21st century world.
