Guiding Statements

Al-Bayan International School personalizes learning to achieve intellectual and individual growth of all students, empowering them to impact their community.
  • Provide a safe and welcoming environment that allows all students the opportunity to learn, achieve academic growth, and become lifelong learners.
  • Offer curriculum that supports the whole child: academic, physical, social, emotional, and cultural development.
  • Model and instill a mindset of compassion, empathy and respect toward others regardless of ability, status, culture or religion.
  • Encourage students to see themselves as citizens of the world whereby they recognize and embrace their own history, culture and traditions, but  also seek to understand and respect other cultures and alternative viewpoints.
A common expectation is a shared standard to be practiced by every member of our community.  At BIS we believe in practicing empathy, self-discipline, and respect.
By practicing empathy we
  • Seek to understand others
  • Are compassionate towards others
  • Welcome diverse thoughts and beliefs
By practicing self-discipline we
  • Take responsibility for our own actions
  • Have high personal expectations
  • Think before we act
By practicing respect we
  • Recognize and treat all members of the school community with equity
  • Display good manners and follow school expectations
  • Appreciate others with different points of view, beliefs, backgrounds, ethnicities, and nationalities



A good habit is a routine of behavior that promotes positivity and togetherness.  At BIS we have adopted three good habits we expect students to practice: persisting, striving for accuracy, and thinking flexibly.
By persisting we
  • Don’t quit even when things are challenging
  • Set personal goals for improvement and work towards them frequently and consistently
  • Stay focused and make good use of time
By striving for accuracy we
  • Make careful choices and pay attention to details
  • Plan ahead to keep our work and resources organized

By thinking flexibly we
  • Are open-minded and willing to try new things
  • Use higher order thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Adapt and change as we learn new ideas and skills, or have new experiences
