BUILDING AND FACILITIES
The school is located in a place allocated by the Bahrain government based on zoning requirements. It is ideally situated far from busy streets and traffic. It takes about 15 minutes to reach the school from the capital city. The school is situated close to places that offer public services and amenities such as Ministry of Education, Health Center, Municipal Hall, other schools, banks, public parks, and supermarket. The buildings were constructed based on internationally accepted building codes. Building permits were secured to ensure that all specifications are met as per standards issued by the government of the Kingdom of Bahrain. The exterior and interior conditions of the buildings support the quality facilities that promote meaningful learning for students and our learning community.

Classroom Set-up.jpgClassroom Set-up. In order to ensure that the campus is conducive to learning, the school has properly secured, adequately air-conditioned and well-illuminated classrooms which provide each student the required space measurement. Each classroom can accommodate 25 – 35 students at a time without compromising easy flow and transition of students for any indoor academic activity. There are sufficient windows which provide adequate lighting. All classrooms and instruction areas are well lit with easily accessible control switches. Moreover, the classroom windows are provided with microfilm to prevent excessive heat during hot months. Curtains are installed in the classrooms of the RCA building to lessen the glare of the sun and to allow dimming the classroom for some multi-media presentations. Classroom arrangement provides for flexibility in varying situations. It was architecturally designed for the safety and convenience of every student. Classroom interiors are pleasant and are properly equipped with furniture, blackboards, and bulletin boards. The school also provides a scheme for regular maintenance of air-conditioning units, potable water supply for the water stations, fire extinguishers, and cleanliness and orderliness of the school premises.
