I too live in a compound, La Palma, and most of the locals are very rude to Western people. Other parts of the Magic Kingdom are much nicer than this region. If this is your first time inside KSA, please don't judge Saudis by the locals you will meet. The schools and people in the Eastern Providence of KSA are great.

Like most people in KSA, I am here for the money. I am not a Muslim and don't see KSA as anything other than a source of income and adventure.

Concerning schools- I can only repeat what some of my co-workers and folks at various compounds have told me. since I don't have first hand knowledge , I won't comment.

Advice-be home before dark and never speak of politics or religion to any one including those you are friends with.

Dear. Mrs DH,

My family arrived a year ago and due to no proper homework, we are stuck in Pakistan International School, which has not a good standard.

Now, we are thinking to change the school. Please let me know the phone nos. of schools you mentioned. Apparently all 3 have no websites. I need phone nos. of following schools.

-Any other international school in Buraidah.

Thank you for your information.

Life in Saudi Arabia is totally different to any part of the world. It takes some time to get used to it. You will experience huge culture shock.By living in a compound you have a chance to meet like minded people and to have a social life within an enclosed environment.
