BISA takes pride in the valuable Dormitory Personnel who ensure a safe and supportive environment, providing the social and personal needs of boarders. Staff are recruited solely for employment in the dormitory and do not have jobs elsewhere.
The Dormitory Director is responsible for the everyday aspects of Dormitory life; oversees the resident House Parents, some of who are experienced teachers, and various administrative staff. House Parents see themselves not only as supervisors but also as surrogate parents, counselors and teachers. This leads to a strong family and community feeling.
The Dormitory has two fully qualified nurses providing 24 hour nursing care for the students. We can care for students with most medical conditions. We control and issue basic and prescribed medications.
In addition private health care is available through the American Mission Hospital (AMH) with a preferential insurance policy.
AMH has provided modern medical services to the residents of Bahrain and the Arabian Gulf for more than 100 years. As a nonprofit hospital, AMH provides modern medical care on a not-for-profit basis for more than 100,000 outpatients every year.
