Tuition and Fees

DEMS is part of the International Schools Group, a not-for-profit organization of independent schools, operating in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for over fifty years. The not-for-profit model is the gold standard in international education as 100% of its revenue is reinvested into the schools. The fees below apply to the school year 2018-2019.

Grade 1 - Grade 5 :  SAR 55,650 (excl. VAT)
