About Beacon Private School (BPS)

At Beacon Private School (BPS) we believe that we are all learners; we strive to equip our learners with the tools to develop socially, emotionally, and academically. We aim to trigger their curiosity in order to prepare them for life as life-long learners. We chose to be different in our approach to teaching and learning, we adopted the Common Ground Collaborative learning ecosystem and framework. This ecosystem gives us a common language for learning, it gives us learning strategies designed around Inquiry and Project Based learning. The CGC allows learners to have a voice and a choice in guiding their own learning outcomes. More importantly, it allows our learners to fully demonstrate the impacts the learning process has had on them, through regular reflections on the conceptual, competency and character learning they acquired. Our learners are agents of their own learning, made only possible through engaging meaningful learning experiences with their teachers and peers.

While we value academic excellence as an important goal in our vision and mission, we also value the development of the child as a whole. Our learners are the heart of BPS. Over the years, as the school grew, we have worked at giving our learners several options to choose from when they graduate from BPS. These options had to fit with our own holistic approach to learning. It is for this reason that our learners will be able to graduate with the Bahrain High School Diploma as well as a New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) recognized High School diploma and an IB diploma since we are currently an eligible candidate school for NEASC and candidate school for IBDP. Quite a feat for such a young school, but a testimony of our dedication to our learners and their future.

The school started out with lots of hope. But the expectations of the school for learning are low. Facilities are limited. This is a basic school and we will be moving our kids next year where it has a better high school program to prepare my kids for higher achievement and university. The director keeps firing or upsetting her good teachers and we had amazing counsellor who she fired because she didn’t like her. Now high school has no counsellor and no IB coordinator. I pay too much for the no service and want my kids in a stable school.

The teachers attention to details is impressive. They put the kids needs before anything and allow them to grow in a safe environment. Sincere thanks to everyone working in BPS

We love BPS. Our daughter loves going to school which is really important to us. We can see first hand the results of their fantastic early years education program. The teaching and learning, staff, facilities, communication and parent involvement is excellent. For a new school, it is one of the best in Bahrain and I highly recommend it.

BPS has a comfortable, small facility and the teachers are nice. But, this is definitely not an academic school. Maximum grade is Grade 10 this year. Parents are starting to feel their kids are not getting the results they expect for the price they are paying. The students have no homework and aren't use to grading, so how will the students be ready to do the IB the school just signed them up for. There are a lot of students who don't speak much English or have other special needs requirements at this school. The school is not a structured learning environment and the students waste a lot of time in the inquiry based learning model that has no grades. This has been supported by the director, who should consider resigning. The students have not been fairly prepared and it is now showing as they are getting older and university expectations are around the corner. BPS was supposed to build a new secondary building but some say that the enrolment is so low that there isn't the funds for that. If you are looking for a more rigorous academic program with a track record of students going to top universities, best to look at St. Christopher's, Riffa, Bayan and the British school.
