I’ve been at this schools for 10 years and have 2 years left. So far I hate it here, the teachers can’t teach, I learn nothing from them, I learnt more from my sister than the teachers. The Arabic department is especially horrible. The teachers aren’t even Bahraini. They hire teachers from Egypt and Tunis. I have a hard time understanding because they speak quickly and it’s not clear. We are on an island full of Arabic speaking people that need these jobs, but they decide to go to North Africa. I haven’t learnt anything at school. Don’t send your children here, it’s a waste of your money. They have 10-12 classes per year group in juniors because they keep accepting more people, the school is over crowded and there is no space whatsoever in the corridors and classrooms. The school has been going downhill, it was okay the first year that I came here, which was in 2012, after that everything was just horrible, all of the good teachers left and the facilities haven’t been upgraded since I first came to this school. I’ve been wanting to leave this school for a while and I hope I leave soon because I don’t want to graduate from this school.

This is by far the best school in bahrain as it is a non profit, anti bullying and amazing learning with the best resources and the best support from the fellow staff AND students! I WOULD DEFINITELY recomend u to join this amazing best school in bahrain it is much better than that bully filled, profitable, horible and the school that only cares abt money and showing off! People that struggle from anything will get the best support in there life not only academic, even if it is not related to school u will be supported by our psychologist and health support team! I love this school so much and u will grow to love it too as everyone cares for eachother from kg to year 12!

BSB has grown tremendously over the last few years. It starts from Nursery all the way through to GCSE's. It has 2 pools, football fields and a running track. There is a great canteen and a coffee shop.

I attended this school for 10 years. Leaving was the best part of my life. Some of the teachers are extremely disrespectful and have no regards to the people they talk to. I have been continuously patronized and not allowed to speak, even after being shouted or screamed at, which is extremely unprofessional. I did not have a good experience at this school and would never subject my own children to such an environment. The education started off well but went extremely downhill. The main issue with this school is the lack of respect that some of the staff holds. Some of the teachers are very kind and helpful, whereas others are extremely rude. If you want your children to be raised and treated with respect, this is not the place. BSB keeps power with the headteachers and holds no regard to the students. Everything done is only for show. Academic excellence is stressed, even saying they 'put their students first,' but after several years of experience I can definitely say this is not true.
