ARKS-Diyar is an international private school which will open for the academic year 2022/23. Initially it will support students from Nursery to Year 5, with the vision to grow with each student till they reach their graduation from High School in Yr. 13. The Pre-School (Nursery and Reception) and Primary School (Yr. 1 to Yr. 5) are dedicated to providing individual care and education for children. ARKS Diyar aims to provide a warm, innovating and nurturing environment in which each child can flourish and reach their full potential. We endeavour to support every child in our care in order to ensure they achieve their utmost, develop confidence in their own abilities and a lifetime love of learning.
We believe that all children learn through Inquiry based learning which is delivered via the British Curriculum that ARKS Diyar has to offer. The curriculum has been developed to embrace and combine British Curriculum with the goal of laying and building on foundations for our student’s success, in aspect of his or her school life at ARKS Diyar. This means and includes aspects such as emotional and physical development, language and communication. The syllabus is a targeted approach of which the teachers are responsible for designing teaching programmes around such and to take into account resources, expertise, school priorities and most importantly- students learning styles.
Regular and ongoing assessment for learning, enables teachers to make professional judgments about student achievement and to adjust the teaching programme to support each student’s learning. Regular and specific feedback is provided for both students and parents to further support effective learning via our innovative and “smart education campus”, which makes the classroom accessible to parents and students. With an educational history in Bahrain of 25 years’ experience in education (1997), we are on the only private school in Bahrain with two campuses now (2022) under Abdulrahman Kanoo’s educational structure.
By the commencement of Primary School (Yr. 1) the experience and range of play- based approach broaden the knowledge and skills along with critical thinking, which supports understanding the world via literacy, mathematics and expressive art and design.
At the age of five, the use of Cambridge Primary Curriculum will further enhance their awareness and understanding of literacy, science, technology and mathematics. Our expansive use of space is double the amount required per student of which is required by the Ministry of Education.
Our bilingual preschool also provides a very strong foundation in Arabic, in addition to social studies, citizenship and religion. All other classes are in English.
