Our elementary school program serves students from Grade 1 through Grade 5. The Elementary Staff consists of qualified, compassionate and committed individuals who were hand selected to be a part of the BIS elementary school team. In addition to our highly qualified teachers, our experts include a counselor, psychologist, speech and language therapist, resource room teacher, content coordinators, elementary coordinator, and a principal.
The instructional program in Grades 1 through 5 is an outstanding integrated American curriculum, based on the AERO (American Education Reaches Out) Standards. AERO standards are specifically designed for overseas schools that use American curriculum as is based off of research related to curriculum worldwide.Our students’ educational experience is strengthened by special offerings in Arabic, Library, Art, Music, and Physical Education. In the elementary school, we are committed to developing the "whole" child through a rigorous academic and social curriculum. School begins at 7:20 AM and concludes at 2:00 PM. Research shows that attendance plays a critical role in a child’s academic success; it is important that students arrive to school on time each and every day in order to maximize their learning time.
In the classroom, students are given opportunities to develop the skills necessary to be successful in the global community of the 21st century. Students are asked to apply this knowledge in the classroom and beyond. Students also have opportunities to participate in a range of educational opportunities through field trips, school-wide events, and a variety of after-school activities. We work to ensure that the elementary school is a safe, secure, and educationally enriching environment for children.
Al Bayan International School’s elementary staff is characterized by compassion, care, and commitment to the education of our children. We believe that children learn in many ways and, therefore, are dedicated to employing a variety of teaching methods and styles. We also believe in the intrinsic value of learning and that children learn best when actively applying concepts in real-life situations.
