What does it take to be successful in a time of rapid change? How can we secure the future of our children? How can we give them the best opportunities in life?

An outstanding education provides students with the skills and knowledge they need to pursue excellence in every endeavour. Students at Abdul Rahman Kanoo International School (ARKIS) follow a bilingual curriculum designed to graduate community-engaged individuals who are open-minded, knowledgeable, critical thinkers. ARKIS students learn how to collaborate and work in teams to solve problems with creativity and imagination; they are reflective and resilient.  

Our teaching and learning draws on the globally recognised standards of the International Baccalaureate Diploma, Cambridge IGCSEs and the Cambridge Lower Secondary and Primary curriculums. Together with essential elements of the Bahrain National Curriculum, our students build a strong knowledge base, and the skills they need to be successful. They learn information literacy, flexibility and adaptability. They leverage technology to their advantage and communicate effectively with confidence, whether in writing or orally, in Arabic and English. We strive to graduate students who are well prepared for university or the world of work; students who are intrinsically motivated and empowered to be the architects of their own success.

Our programmes ensure that students have an awareness and deep understanding of the local and global contexts. Through international and cultural awareness, students learn how to act effectively and ethically on the world stage, to make a positive contribution to society. They understand our impact on the environment and the importance of sustainable development to all our futures.

We want our students to become leaders who take initiative, show integrity and can make a difference in the 21st century.  As we pursue excellence in teaching and learning, we are committed to continuous improvement, authenticity and integrity.

ARKIS students are successful, driven, resilient, reflective, self-motivated agents of change. Welcome to our learning community.
