Ibn Al Hytham Islamic School was established in 1989 with its humble beginning of 7 teachers and 200 students in an old building in Manama. At present the school needs no introduction. It is famous among all the communities in Bahrain, especially with Indian Muslim Community for providing value-based quality education at the most affordable fee. It is evident from the fact that it has 2300 students on its roll with a strong faculty of 150 teachers.
The purpose of establishing IHIS was not to increase the no. of existing schools in the Island. It was started as a mission in the field of education for providing the students an atmosphere where they can grow while learning the facts at the one hand and getting trained in the field of morals and ethics on the other hand, the end result will be getting an individual ready to serve the society in a different way. The aim of the mission is to produce a student who first of all must be a good human being than any professional.
IHIS is one of the well known schools in the region and gaining fame day by day for which the management of the school worked very hard with the team of sincere and dedicated staff members. Their untiring efforts for the mission and policies drafted for the noble cause, “to make quality education for all” left no stone unturned to cherish the dream had by the managing committee of IHIS. The mission did not stop here. It is only one of the aims and objectives of IHIS. IHIS thrives to serve the Indian Community in the field of education where excellence is preferred.
IHIS wants to produce such students, when these individuals take up the responsibility in the future may strive to eliminate the evils of the society i.e. corruption, illiteracy, poverty and injustice etc. since they had been trained in that direction. The school provides them an atmosphere where they feel and make understand that up to what extent these evils are immoral and dangerous to the individual so as to the society.
Keeping in the mind, Religion is the only refuge to protect oneself from the existing evils in the society, the school provides Islamic Education to the Muslim students whereas non Muslim students are provided with moral education. The aim is to make them conscious of their deeds in their daily life that provides them a training which shall bear fruits in their future deeds and decisions.
The school got affiliation to CBSE for Secondary Level in the year 1999 and for Senior Secondary in the year 2007.
Since then the school has maintained the record of 100% pass result in board’s exams for X and XII and the performance of the students is improving year by year.
With its regular and continuous growth and due to the sincere and untiring efforts of the team, IHIS shifted to its own newly constructed building in 2007. The building is equipped with all the modern facilities required for the education i.e. spacious well lit classrooms, library, computer labs, physics, chemistry, biology and maths labs and audio visual lab etc.
