Please be aware that the date of the DHS Halloween Dance has been changed to Friday October 31 (7:00 - 10:00 pm).  This change was made due to a conflict with the Varsity Volleyball Tournament; with the new timing, all DHS athletes will be able to fully participate in the Dance.

Last entry to the Dance will be at 8:00 pm, and students will be free to leave the event after 9:30 pm.
Dance tickets cost 20 SR and will be available for purchase from Oct.26 - 30 during lunch breaks.  Students will also be allowed to purchase tickets at the Gate on the evening of the dance, but at a cost of 30 SR.  Students wishing to bring a high-school aged guest must submit a signed Guest Form to the office by Tues. Oct 28 ... Guests are unable to purchase tickets at the Gate.  These forms are available from Mrs. Haneen.

Message regarding SAT Registration at DHS
DHS offers the SAT and SAT Subject Tests on-site in October, December, January, May & June.  We have been declared a Private Test Center, so only students registered at DHS are able to test here.
In order to take the test here, students must register through the College Board Website and enter the following codes:
  •      School CEEB Code: 692103
  •      Test Center Code: 52708
Some students have reported receiving an Error Message after entering these codes.  This does not always happen, and the College Board has not explained why the error is occurring.  Thankfully, the error can be bypassed.
If a DHS student receives the Error Message, they must click "Next" again, and the registration will proceed to the next step, with DHS as the selected Test Center.
If you encounter any difficulties, please see Mr. David Butler.
Welcome to DHS

Dhahran Academy was founded in 1962 as a non-profit, co-educational, day school for children of American Consulate staff. It is composed of three schools located next to the US Consulate for the Eastern Province in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. By decree of the Saudi government in 1999, Dhahran Academy set in motion changes to provide a full Pre -K through 12th grade program with the addition of Dhahran High School (DHS), the first of its kind in the kingdom.

The Senior class of 2001 marked Dhahran High School's first graduating class. Graduates from DHS receive a high school diploma from Saudi Arabia's first American curriculum high school, accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

In 2010, the Dhahran Baccalaureate Center (DBC) was started under the auspices of Dhahran High School. DBC offers the full IB Diploma Programme. The first Cohort of 26 students has graduated in May 2013.

Dhahran High School is located in the city of Dhahran which is adjacent to the commercial and government centers of Al-Khobar and Dammam. The city of Dhahran includes the Royal Saudi Air Base, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, and headquarters for Saudi Aramco. The geographic area of DHS is the Arabian Gulf in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia.
