Al Raja School, Bahrain

Manama, Bahrain

Al Raja School is a K-12 school in Bahrain with about 630 students, almost all of whom are Muslim Bahraini, though there is a small number of Christian Arab students. Offering dual English and Arabic instruction, the school aims to provide the youth of Bahrain with an education that will help them grow into strong and sensitive members of their families, their communities, and the world in which they live. Al Raja School carries out this mission by focusing on three key areas: excellence in education, development of the whole person, and equality.
