At Bahrain School we believe in students, parents, and community leaders working together in partnership with teachers. Bahrain School supports programs that have encourage parent involvement. Parent Night, parent teacher conferences, parent advisory groups, awards programs, classroom volunteers, parents as resource persons in the classroom and parent chaperones are just a few of the ways parents are included in the day-to-day life of our school.
To volunteer at our school, please contact the school. We will re-direct you the current Volunteer Coordinator. There are many ways for members of the community to get involved.
