Principals' Messages

Welcome back to Al-Bayan Bilingual School! We are excited to get the 2016-2017 school year started.  As a school community, we look forward to working with students, teachers, parents, and families to ensure that all students have a rich, fulfilling year.  It never fails, in my nineteen years in education, that the beginning of the school year brings a sense of renewal and excitement.

At Al-Bayan (BBS), our focus is on your student as a whole.  As a school, we work to prepare your child for challenges of the 21st century and focus on critical thinking and real-world problem based learning in our curricula.  We value the academic success of our students as well as their character development and strive to ensure that our students are fully rounded global citizens.  This year, we will be using the Tribes process and renewing and expanding our commitment to community service as part of character development. We strive for all BBS community members to use the four Tribes agreements (Mutual Respect, Attentive Listening, Right to Pass, and Appreciation).

As a school we provide many different ways that students, parents, and teachers can be actively involved in our community.  Students have a plethora of activities to become involved in during their high school career and teachers and parents play an integral role in our community, supporting their students by modeling expectations and reinforcing students’ independence and self-responsibility.

As always, the Student Services office in the high school at Al-Bayan is here to help students and parents navigate their way through the high school rules, procedures, and student life.  Students are encouraged to stop by our office to give their input or to seek guidance.  Please feel free to call or make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this year the best yet!
