Learning Support Programme

Naseem International School was founded in January 1982 by Mrs. Sameera Abdul Jabbar Al Kooheji in response to a demand for a bilingual school that caters both local and other nationalities, and that would provide a high-quality education with respect for the Arabic culture. The school was granted international status by the Ministry of Education in March 1998 and had grown steadily from a pre-school with sixty students, to a Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade school of over 920 students. NIS is committed to educating the whole person and aims to provide a balanced education, which enables students to fulfil their potential in all areas of growth – intellectually, physically, emotionally, spiritually and socially – and empowers them to become the people they can and want to be.

Naseem International School is the first and only IB World School in the Kingdom of Bahrain to be fully authorized to offer the PYP (Primary Years Programme), MYP (Middle Years Programmed) & the DP (Diploma Programme).
