The Esol Education team was thrilled when it was given the opportunity to build and open a new school in Bahrain, supported through the Mumtalakat portfolio. The organization began working to create a world-class school that provides a holistic American and international education. It was clear very early that our goal was to provide an environment where students can achieve outstanding academic success; become independent thinkers; are happy and engaged; and love to come to school to learn and grow every day.

We have set high expectations for ourselves so that we can provide ASB parents with great value for their child’s education. We utilized Esol’s 45+ years of experience in establishing and managing leading international schools around the world.

ASB opened in September 2020. The school is reflective of Esol Education’s deep expertise in international education, from designing optimal learning spaces and recruiting the best educators to building a robust international curriculum and ensuring a multitude of activities and opportunities to encourage students to be well rounded, thoughtful citizens. ASB is a joint venture between Esol Education and Elm Education Fund (Elm), a Bahrain-based education platform, established by Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company (Mumtalakat), the sovereign wealth fund of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Elm establishes and co-invests in world-class educational institutions in partnership with leading global operators.

As an American international school in Bahrain, ASB offers a standards-based American curriculum, from Head Start to Grade 12.
