The American run elementary school at Dhahran compound is Dhahran Hills. It services K-5. The school starts at 7:40 and ends at 3. Kindergarten gets out at 10:45 for lunch and 1st-5th get out at 11:30. They all return from lunch at 12:30. So Kindergarten has a 2 hour lunch and everyone else has an hour that they go home. It is a wonderful school!
