International Schools in Bahrain

The majority of expats living in Bahrain find that public schools in the country aren't suitable for foreign children because of the language barrier and different cultural norms. Therefore, expats tend to opt for international schools instead.

While there's plenty of choice in terms of international schools in Bahrain, securing a place at the desired school can be tough. It's therefore advisable that parents begin investigating schooling options for their child as soon as possible – ideally before the move. In some cases, expat parents end up having to homeschool their children while waiting for a space to become available at their chosen school. 

Below is a list of recommended international schools in Bahrain.
