Grades 1-5 builds on the foundation of the kindergarten program We offer a syllabus that is rooted in the standards introduced by the Common Core State Standards. The curriculum is standards-based whereby the student is taught and guided by great teachers to master the specific subject. These years are designed for the students to build a strong foundation of knowledge, critical thinking skills, and leadership ability. English language arts, math, science, and social studies are core subjects at all levels – elementary through middle school. In addition, as part of having a holistic approach, we provide opportunities for students to take classes in French, physical education, and technology. Saudi history is also taught from grade 4 onwards to instill a sense of pride in our homeland of Saudi Arabia.

Aine Clarke

Vice Principal KG & Elementary

Ireland is where I grew up, always playing school and wanting to be a teacher. I attended the University of Galway and qualified as a Geography and Irish teacher in 2011. I loved my time in the classroom and when curiosity got the better of me, I returned to University of Maynooth, to complete my Masters in Educational Leadership. I began my first leadership position in a starter residential school in Co. Galway. Before joining the team in Britus International School, Bahrain, I worked in the United Arab Emirates as an Deputy Cluster Manager- Academic Advisor.

During my time in Dubai, I led on educational reform and change management as well as establishing, developing and improving teaching and learning. I implemented a nationwide e-learning collaborative practice during the Covid-19 Pandemic. I believe in lifelong learning and I will model my ethos for the students, teachers and parents of BISBH. I am excited about this new chapter in BISBH and it is an honor to be involved in this educational journey.
