Are you curious about the school of elite and royals in the early days; how was it like, wondering about the extravagant and elegant architectural design and amenities? A visit to the Princes' School will give you a chance to glimpse the earliest school of the royals and elite in Hofuf City. Opened in 1941 and was one of the earliest public schools in the Arabian Peninsula.
The school has been converted into a heritage museum and flocked by tourists, especially during the weekend.
The school was a public school, but most students were from the royals and elite families. However, the strict disciplinary standard by the parents and ancestors during the early days did not make students from the elite families free from the hand of the school's restraint policy.

On a personal account, my visit to the school allowed me to look back to when the school played the role of 2nd home with the teachers as second parents in molding moral, social and personal disciplines to pupils or students.
I experienced getting hit with the stick by my teachers when I made an error and responded with the wrong answer. And this exclusive school for royals and the elite made no difference in as far as disciplinary teaching is concerned. The paddle displayed inside the museum tells how strict the school is about academic and moral discipline teaching.
The quality standard of academic teaching that the school has given to its students has significantly impacted the kingdom's social, educational, social, and economic development. Some of its alumni have made their marks in business, education, health, and engineering, and some even hold significant government roles.
