The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, KSA, has invested ample resources to boost and enhance the environment and the outcome of its educational system. Using AlGodorat and AlTahsili, standardized tests used to evaluate students’ knowledge and skills, as a measurement to find discrepancies between girls and boys performance on these tests. This study investigated class size, tutorials, physical education and professional development as possible ways of improving the performance of Saudi Arabian girls. Further, the study conducted a survey targeting girls’ high school teachers in Saudi Arabia to get more prospective, opinions, and inclinations toward implementing these methods. Moreover, the study included recommendations for policy makers and leaders in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The study found the majority of teachers were in favor of implementing these methods. Furthermore, we were able to find a correlation between teachers’ ages, locations, and experiences and their prospective toward these methods of improvement.
