International Indian School Jeddah
formerly known as the Embassy of India School, was founded in 1969. It made a very humble beginning with a limited number of students, staff and infrastructural facilities in a makeshift area. The objective of establishing the school was to impart quality education to the children of Indian nationals residing in Jeddah. The construction of the present Girls' Section started in 1982 with the foundation stone laid by the Late Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi and was completed in 1984. The section located in Al-Aziziah Dist. spreads over an area of more than 8000 sq. meters and has all the required facilities. By the late 1980s, the students' strength had unexpectedly increased to the extent that the vast premises of the school in Al-Aziziah was not sufficient. Hence, the construction of an additional premises - the present Boys' Section was started in 1992 and completed in 1994.The Boys' Section in Al-Rehab Dist. spreads over an area of more than 17000 sq. meters with a big playground and all other facilities. With the blessings of the Almighty and constant efforts put in by well wishers, the school has expanded in a phenomenal manner. Currently the school is catering to the educational needs of over 10500 students.
