The main problems of school course timetabling are time, curriculum, and classrooms. In addition there
are other problems that vary from one institution to another. This paper is intended to solve the problem of
satisfying the teachers’ preferred schedule in a way that regards the importance of the teacher to the
supervising institute, i.e. his score according to some criteria. Genetic algorithm (GA) has been presented
as an elegant method in solving timetable problem (TTP) in order to produce solutions with no conflict. In
this paper, we consider the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to efficiently obtain a score for each teacher,
and consequently produce a GA-based TTP solution that satisfies most of the teachers’ preferences.
