welcome to demsmessage from the principal


DEMS Principal












Dear Parent,


Welcome to the DEMS website! Thank you for your interest in Dhahran Elementary Middle School and your focus on the best possible education for your child.


We have much to be proud of here at DEMS. We have an excellent academic program on a safe, secure campus, complemented by a comprehensive specialist and elective schedule of classes. Our student support programs and our extensive after-school activities program gives all students opportunities for success.


Our campus is shared by Dhahran High School and the Dhahran British Grammar School. The advantage of this arrangement is having access to excellent shared facilities that enhance our program. I would argue that our library is one of the best in the Middle East.


If you are a prospective parent, please come and visit our campus whenever you are in the Dhahran / Khobar / Dammam area. We are located on KFUPM Road, adjacent to the American Consulate. Please call the office (330-0555 x2354) to set up an appointment with Mr. Adam Karsten, or Mrs. Rita Kombol - the DEMS Counselors, Mrs. Tracy Bosch - DEMS Dean of Students, Mrs. Nichola Smith - Assistant Principal, or myself.


We look forward to meeting you!




Jana Barnhouse, Principal
