Why Choose GBA

Safe Bilingual Setting

A bilingual setting improves students’ memory and attention span. The diversity of learning in a bilingual environment helps our students be better prepared for success in a global society, whether they remain in the Gulf region or study abroad.

Dual Language Curriculum

Our children benefit from both an Arabic and English based curriculum. We focus on the United States Common Core standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics, as well as the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Social skills

Our entire staff works together to foster a positive atmosphere that will encourage our students’ intellectual and emotional growth. We strive to help the students learn and practice having positive and productive interactions with others.  These are lifelong skills that will contribute to each child’s success in every aspect of their lives.

Qualified Multinational Staff

GBA has an involved multinational staff working together to be the best they can possibly be. We care not only about academics, but about teaching students to be well-rounded. We seek the best teachers from around the world who are knowledgeable in their field and care about the students as individuals.

Our bilingual and multi-national educational environment, opportunities for student leadership, and focused theme weeks help build resilience and empathy toward others and other cultures.

Community for Lifelong Learners

We prepare our students for lifelong success by providing a positive learning atmosphere so that they may continue learning when faced with the challenges of a global society.
