We are proud to be the only school in the Kingdom of Bahrain offering the Philippine Department of Education-approved K-12 education to the children of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs). With a strong track record, we have become the first Philippine school overseas to receive accreditation from the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (PAASCU). Our students consistently outperform prestigious schools in Bahrain and worldwide in local, regional, and international examinations and competitions such as the TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) and the World’s Scholars Cup.

Established in 1994, our school boasts a purpose-built campus spanning 26,000 square meters, providing ample space for our current student population of 1,000 Filipino students.
