Makkah Governor Prince Khaled Al-Faisal officially inaugurated the Middle East’s first electronic school. It is named after businessman Abdul Rahman Faqeeh and located along the Makkah-Jeddah Expressway. The governor lauded Faqeeh for establishing the state-of-the-art educational complex that comprises primary, intermediate and secondary schools with advanced facilities. The school complex is located outside Makkah’s residential districts in order to provide students with a suitable learning environment. All its academic and administrative activities are based on electronics and students of the school will not use any books. Spelling out some distinctive features of the school, Faqeeh said parents and guardians would be able to follow up studies of their children through the Internet. The school charges an annual fee of SR7,000 for primary students, SR8,000 for intermediate students and SR9,000 for secondary students. Nasser Al-Ahyawi, director of the schools, said 1,150 students have already enrolled in the three schools.
