BISBH Principal talks about the school and the programs offered

"At BISB we have a team of passionate and well qualified teachers and support staff who share a clear vision that builds on the Britus mission and our belief of learning without limits."

Welcome to the Britus International School Bahrain (BISBH), a school deeply committed to the mission of inspiring our students to excel in the American curriculum Education and the global community as innovative, compassionate citizens.

BISBH serves an international student body of more than 2,400 students Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12, representing a truly international community. Our students receive an excellent education based upon an American system that offers a great curriculum intentionally designed to engage each and every student and apply their learning to practical, real-life scenarios. We also offer the British IGCSE and the International IB Diploma.

The Britus community can look forward to seeing the very best features of a truly great international school. This community makes BISBH such a special place. Faculty, students and parents share a commitment to the greater good of the community, motivated for individual success, but at the same time supporting one another and valuing the achievements of all. Students at BISBH, supported by our outstanding faculty, are encouraged to aim high in all that they do.

Our status as a CIS accredited School is a testament to the importance of setting high standards and striving for continuous improvement. Additionally, we are currently pursuing international accreditation with the New England Association of Schools & Colleges (NEASC). Benchmarking ourselves against both national and international standards is a crucial part of BISBH’s ongoing journey to grow and develop through the cycle of evaluation, planning and action.

I look forward to building deeper relationships with all of our families as I work to better know our community. To be most successful in this process, we must work together and communicate openly. My door is always open if there are any concerns or thoughts to be shared and discussed. On behalf of the entire BISBH community, I look forward to working and learning with you this school year.
