Opened its doors in 2019, the Canadian School Bahrain is certified by the British Columbia Ministry of Education and is the first certified BC offshore school in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Canadian School Bahrain is a non-profit organization and is inclined towards nurturing young and talented Bahraini students to be future leaders.

Message from the founder:

It has been my vision for many years to open a school in Bahrain that would have the highest level of academics on a global scale, while still upholding strong moral values and citizenship. In order to achieve this vision, we worked to develop a comprehensive and wholistic strategic plan with a qualified team that we will continue to revise as we develop and grow. Our team has and will continue to implement this plan with moving forward. Coming from a history of contracting, it became of interest to me that it was important to see a new standard of students graduating from schools in Bahrain that would be able to contribute to their citizenship, language, values, and culture. We chose the community of Diyar Al Muharraq as Muharraq is the heart of Bahrain’s culture. We wanted to be able to connect and promote the values and connect with this cultural center.

We researched and studied the top global programs and it was the British Columbia, Canada curriculum that was flexible and able to support students on multiple levels. The skills that students obtain in the BC Canada program will allow our graduates to be qualified in any field of their choice. We also know that Canada is accessible for our students to visit and possibly study. The BC Canada program will prepare students and give access to the most prominent universities in the world.

I would like to thank the Ministry of Education in Bahrain and also the Ministry of Education in British Columbia for your support and for allowing us to bring the BC program to Bahrain. We are grateful for all of the guidance that both Ministries have given us in opening our school.

We would like to thank the board, leadership, faculty, and parents for a successful yet challenging year. We are pleased that we have reached the outcomes and goals in our first academic school year. We would like to thank the parents of our school for entrusting us with the education of their children and The Canadian School Bahrain is looking forward to expanding in the upcoming years and becoming a full nursery to high school program.
