Welcome to ARPS Elementary School

“The Pre/Elementary school at ARPS advocates its core values imbedded within the curriculum, values that contribute and shape our students’ views, expectations, and aspirations. These values include Local & Global Citizenship, Empathy, Integrity & Trust, Tolerance, Responsibility & Accountability, Life-long Learning & Environmental Awareness and are visible within our physical environment, our practices and our student achievements.


Through our Literacy and Numeracy scope and sequence, we aim to instil the love of learning as opportunities allow for exploration and investigations that promote a sense of curiosity, continuous learning, confidence and resilience. A range of non-core subjects and enrichment activities offered contribute in the development of the “whole child” as learning becomes real and relevant enabling our students to successfully adapt to the next stage of their learning.”

We seek to develop these values in our students, and they are the same values that we also hope to instill in our staff and our broader school community. It is unsurprising that these values are displayed upon the walls of our classrooms and are evident in the way we interact with each other and with our families.


We aim to encourage students’ love for learning through a broad range of enriching activities. A major focus is, of course, on Literacy and Numeracy; however, we aim to develop well-rounded  students, ready for their place in the world. Therefore, students are also offered the opportunities to explore and succeed in UCMAS, Art, Information Technology and Sport. Our curriculum is also enriched with an evolving range of excursions and incursions that make learning real and relevant.

AL RAWABI PRIVATE SCHOOL was established in 1997 with 25 Kindergarten students in a small villa in Grnata, Kingdom of Bahrain. Today, AL RAWABI PRIVATE SCHOOL provides high quality education at an affordable cost for nearly two thousand students. We believe that the aim of education should be to promote a balanced development of the mental, emotional, physical, social, moral and spiritual aspects of our children.
