Al Noor International School is a private school in Bahrain on the September 6, 1993 by private investors. The school teaches more than 4000 students in Bahrain. It started with a programme of classes for primary levels in the district of Mahooz, prior to its relocation to the island of Sitra. Currently it houses the educational needs of children from more than 34 countries and follows a curricular program made up of three types: British, Bahraini and Indian.
This section of the school focuses more on studies rather than on extracurricular activities,in fact we ensure students are deprived of all of its forms. Students are forced to select their streams (science or business) right after eight grade and subjects like art, music, etc are removed from curriculum after middle section. The school follows the IGCSE course offered by the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate as well as AS Level (Advanced Subsidiary Level), and A Level (Advanced Level) qualifications and was named the second school in the Middle East to become a Cambridge Fellowship Center and the first in Bahrain. Grades range from Kindergarten to Grade 12 (commonly referred to as A Levels).
Bahraini Curriculum (Thawjihiya)
The course is almost identical to that offered by the Ministry of Education, Bahrain. In addition to subjects that are offered in Arabic, the curriculum offers English classes as well as Computer Science courses.
