The Modern Knowledge Schools, founded by Ms. Parween Kazerooni in 1995, is a privately owned K-12 American school located in the Juffair area of Bahrain.
The curriculum is American and all instruction is in English except the required Arabic Language, Islamic Religion, and Arabic Social Studies. In addition to the American curriculum, the school is authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program for students in Grades 11 and 12.
There are four separate schools with a population of over 2400 students, 72% host country nationals and the remainder international. Our curriculum is delivered by an enthusiastic, forward-thinking, and energetic faculty to multicultural instructional groups.
As an American curriculum school, MKS is committed to hiring experienced and certified staff members from the U.S. and Canada to teach the core subjects of Math, English, Science, and Social Studies. However, we are also committed to a strong Arabic studies curriculum that is taught by experienced Arab teachers.
Our mission and philosophy are to provide the best education possible to all of our students, and we are proud that our student population includes students from a variety of countries and nationalities.
Although we have achieved much, we have much more to achieve. We intend to continue building and improving our school and staff for years to come. Again, we welcome you and thank you for visiting our website, and we invite you to visit Modern Knowledge Schools.
