History


Al-Bayan International School (BIS) opened with the new name and fully restored campus in the Fall of 2017.

Originally founded in 1993, under the name of Fawzia Sultan International School (FSIS) in honor of Ms. Fawzia H. Sultan. FSIS was a non-profit, American curriculum school dedicated to serving the educational needs of children with learning differences. The first school of its kind in the Middle East, FSIS was established to recognize the problems of children who were intelligent and capable but who were not experiencing academic success.

Ms. Sultan was an avid believer in the importance and power of education, and she believed that every child deserved a chance to realize his/her learning potential. As such, now, the newly renamed BIS, serves all students, and continues the legacy of Ms. Sultan. BIS is a school that aims to create an educational environment that meets individual needs of every student.
