High School Curriculum Overview
The Multinational School Bahrain has been approved by the Bahrain Ministry of Education to open Years 7 and 8 (AUSVels Curriculum) for ages 12 to 14 years in Septermber 2014.
In Years 7 and 8 the school continues with the new Australian Curriculum and the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS), using them as guides to plan our curriculum and report on student achievements. The results of NAPLAN (national student achievement tests) confirm that our school provides highly successful programs and effective classroom teaching matched to students' learning needs.
How we teach at Multinational Schools
Multinational Schools match the curriculum with individual and group learning needs, abilities and styles. Teachers continually assess the level and rate of each student's learning. The best learning environment is when teachers understand and encourage the strengths and abilities of students. Our educational program allows teachers to focus on individual requirements and provide a range of strategies to enable creative and critical thinking. We believe that our students' learning must go beyond the acquisition of knowledge; we aim to equip them with the skills, qualities and understandings that will enable life long learning including instilling self discipline, encouraging leadership, nurturing the individual and maximising growth potential.
