Bahrain's Education System

The educational system in the kingdom of Bahrain follows a ladder of nine years of basic education which includes both the primary and intermediate stages and three years of secondary education in its various track.


Climate of Bahrain

Bahrain features an arid climate. Bahrain has two seasons: an extremely hot summer and a relatively mild winter.

During the summer months, from April to October, afternoon temperatures average 40 °C (104 °F) and can reach 48 °C (118.4 °F) during June and July. The combination of intense heat and high humidity makes this season uncomfortable. In addition, a hot, dry southwest wind, known locally as the qaws, periodically blows sand clouds across the barren southern end of Bahrain toward Manama in the summer.
