"Keeping Students First"
Welcome to Bahrain Bayan Primary School.
We are proud to offer families a fully-bilingual English and Arabic education in a private school setting. Here, students spend each and every day developing their reading, writing, and speaking skills in both languages. Mathematics and Science instruction fosters students' reasoning skills and connects to the world around them. We offer all students in grades one through five instruction in Art, Music, Technology and Physical Education.
At Bahrain Bayan Primary School, we know that our families depend upon us to also teach and model the Islamic values that are so much a part of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Our students celebrate Bahraini culture and history, as well as learn to practice the tenets of their Muslim faith. From weekly assemblies to special performances and national holidays, our students learn to be proud of their Bahraini heritage. We explicitly teach children the social and behavior skills they need to become caring, compassionate citizens, family members, and future leaders.
I have the privilege of leading a team of highly-skilled international educators and support staff members. Together we are committed to "keeping students first".

The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book..
Meet our primary school educators who instill love of knowledge in our kids:
Throughout Primary School our curriculum is committed to students achieving mastery in both English and Arabic. Students spend half of each day in an Arabic classroom, and the other half in an English classroom.
Grade offerings throughout the primary program are based on the AERO standards in English, Math, and Science. These standards are aligned with research-based trends in worldwide curriculum development. AERO provides a framework for curriculum consistency across grades K-12 and for stability of curriculum.
Teachers collaborate and develop units of study grounded in the standards so that students experience complete, in-depth, and thorough learning.
Bahrain Bayan School also offers a strong Arabic curriculum and the required government syllabus in Social Studies, Religion, and Government. Music, Art, Technology and Physical Education also play a strong role in the curriculum.
All curricular offerings are supported by appropriately aligned resources and the school’s library with a collection of 38,000 items (approximately 17,800 of those items in Arabic and 20,650 in English). Curricular experiences are supported through field trip opportunities throughout the primary years and an extensive after-school activities program is intentionally aligned to enhance the day time classroom curriculum.
