Admission Policies

Admissions decisions are guided by the school’s mission, philosophy, and beliefs, particularly the central aim of developing students who are “caring individuals, critical thinkers, and responsible world citizens.”

American School of Bahrain will consider applicants on the basis of their ability to succeed in the school’s programs and to actively contribute to the quality of school life. In all decisions a student’s social, emotional, and educational needs and potential are at the center of the admissions assessment process.

Admissions decisions follow clearly established procedures involving staff members in admissions, school leaders, counselors, and teacher specialists. In the review process the Director’s decision is final regarding all applications for admissions.

ASB admits students of any race, color, nationality or ethnic background and extends the same to all the rights, privileges, and opportunities to all students at the school. The enrollment or re-enrollment of students requiring English Language (EL) support and learning support services may be limited according to program and staffing policies as defined academic requirements.
