Character education is all the activities that take place in and outside of school to develop character strengths or virtues in students.

We aim to provide exceptional opportunities for each of our students in a supporting and challenging environment. We welcome all students to JBS. This could include students with special educational or learning needs, students with English as an additional Language (EAL), and those who are Gifted or Talented.

We offer a unique French Native Speaker Programme from Pre K to Grade 5 and a French B programme from Pre K to Grade 12. Arabic is also taught as a first and second language from Pre K.

We pride ourselves on high academic standards, however we are more than this. Truly excellent education is about developing a passion for life-long learning and a capability for independent thinking.
