Welcome to American School of Bahrain

Full site coming soon!
Welcome to American School of Bahrain (ASB), a new Pre-KG to Grade 12 American international school opening* on a 17-acre campus in Wadi Al Buhair, near the National Stadium. At ASB our mission is to provide a challenging American and international education in a happy and accepting environment where students are inspired to pursue their passions and to be responsible global citizens in a complex world.

ASB is an Esol Education school, part of a family of high performing international schools with a heritage of over 40 years of educational excellence, serving over 10,000 students in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Hong Kong, Cairo, Nicosia and Lebanon.


I am excited and proud to be the Founding Director for American School of Bahrain. I have been a Principal and Head of School for the past 25 years in Canada and Hong Kong and very much look forward to meeting the community of Bahrain and welcoming you to ASB.

I believe that for students to be successful academically they need to be engaged, have a strong sense of belonging and feel happy and safe in their school environment. Collectively we will strive to instill in every graduate: the skills to think critically and creatively; the values to respect themselves and others; and a passion to make the world a kinder and safer place. We hope that our diverse programs will help them to build compassion, resilience and an understanding of their role in a rapidly changing world.

At ASB, we are commencing an exceptional educational journey with outstanding teachers and an unparalleled campus. We hope you will join us!
