AL-BAYAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OBJECTIVES
  • Provide a safe, secure, encouraging environment that allows all students the opportunity to learn, achieve academic growth, and become lifelong learners

  • 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 make connections to other cultures and alternative viewpoints
 
BIS COMMON EXPECTATIONS
 
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 others’ 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
  • value all members of the school community
  • display good manners and follow school expectations
  • are tolerant of others with different points of view and belief

 
BIS GOOD HABITS
 
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 get difficult
  • set personal goals for improvement and work towards them
  • stay focused and make good use of time
 
By striving for accuracy we 
  • make smart choices and pay attention to details
  • plan ahead and are resourceful and organized
  • monitor progress and evaluate our performance in order to improve 
 
By thinking flexibly we 
  • are willing to try new things
  • use complex thinking and problem-solving skills
  • adapt and change as we learn new ideas and skills, or have new experiences
