Overview

Welcome to Al Fajer School!

Al Fajer School offers students both an American and Minist ry of Education curriculum that allows students an opportunity to learn English and Arabic simultaneously. This,  along with their exposure to French and other school activities and field trips, gives our students an experience unique among schools in Bahrain. Students learn to appreciate the Bahraini cultu re while becoming global citizens respecting the culture of others.

I am excited for the start of the 2018-2019 school year. The administrative team spent the summer reviewing the past year's accomplishments and have made additions to the physical campus, curriculum, and programming which will pr011ide ou r students an excellent opportunity to learn. We have added our own Spelling Bee and Reading competitions, will offer increased use of the library facilities for our students, will offer an after-school and during schoo l hours book club to name a few of the 2018-2019 programs. After piloting an Eng1i sh language diagnostic assessment last year, we have fully adopted the Renaissance STAR 360 Reading, Early Literacy , and Math assessments for our English language offerings. We are the only school in Bahrain to offer this fully implemented assessment program to Bahraini students. These assessments not only show how our students compare to their US counterparts, bu t they also provide valuableguided assistance for our teachers to teach the skills our students need most to be successful. Additiona lly, you, as parents, will receive student progress reports generated from theseassessments throughou t the year so that you  can become more informed about your child's progress. Efforts to improve students' Arabic language experience are also a focus this year as well. I am proud to be a part of a school dedicated to helping students grow academically andpersonally to meet the challenges of  today's society.

A school with a surging enrollment. Al Fajer's on -going commitment to excellence is evidenced

by its annual self -assessment.improvements to campus facilities, on-going teacher training, and curriculum enhancements  designed  to  meet the ever-changing landscape of  today. Student success and the ir development as positive contributors to society remains our primary objective at Al Fajer Private Schoo l.
