AMA International School Bahrain (AMAISB) ends the school year with an improvement in its various facilities, exemplary achievements by students and with the school gaining membership in an international school community.
At the beginning of the school year, AMAISB started using the newly-built middle and high school buildings which are equipped with teaching resources such as science, computer and iMAC laboratories that enhanced the teaching and learning.
Another addition to the school’s facilities is the multi-purpose hall with LED wall monitor and indoor sports facilities that encourage students to take part in various school activities.
The school also took pride in being the sixth member-school of the Council of International Schools (CIS), in Bahrain this academic year.
CIS is a membership community collaboratively shaping international education through professional services to schools, universities, and individuals.
It is also a leader in international accreditation.
The school was recommended by the CIS evaluator to proceed to the accreditation phase and have the preparatory visit in November this year.
AMAISB surpassed the expectations for the membership criteria.
Looking to the future, AMAISB intends to continue to improve its programme offering by horizontally and vertically articulating its curriculum in alignment with the Californian Core Standards and introducing elective subjects that aim to broaden the interest of students and enhance their fundamental critical thinking skills.
Furthermore, living with the mission of the school to provide relevant knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to embrace the challenges of the dynamic worlds, the school is sending students to international competitions this month.
AMAISB students will take part in the World Adolescent Robot Contest in Gau Yung, China and World Scholar’s Cup – Global Rounds in Barcelona, Spain.
AMAISB is anticipating a successful SY 2018-2019 with the offering of the 2018 summer classes to kindergarten and primary school students designed to prepare them for new challenges in the next academic school year.
AMAISB school director Marietta S Sicat is looking forward to more successes in the next academic school year with the available teaching resources that include fully-equipped facilities, an articulated curriculum and a competent group of teachers and support staff.
