What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Al Bayan Bilingual school is a great place to learn if you are bilingual. Teachers and adminstrators have an open door policy so parents are always welcome to visit. It has a demanding curriculum and high standards and expectations. English continues to a be a focus of both the MS and HS and the introduction of Writers Workshop is a great example of this committment to excellence. If your goal is to get your child into a good university and provide them with a solid education, then BBS is one option you might want to consider!
