Head of School’S Message


Welcome to the ABA website! It is my pleasure to greet you and introduce you to the magnificent things that await you as you get to know the ABA community.

An ABA education is grounded in the IB tenets which encourage both personal and academic achievements. ABA is authorized to offer the full continuum of international education programmes, from the pastoral Elementary School, through the Middle Years to the IB Diploma Programme. In a safe and supportive environment, ABA students have academic, athletic and artistic opportunities every day. On any day, I am treated to middle school science classes where experimentation is real and challenging. And then immediately thereafter, I witness a music class where participation is joyful and full of learning.

My path to ABA is from schools in the US and Canada, where I have been the Head of School for many years. I am thrilled to be in Muscat and to be a part of the experienced and talented Leadership Team at ABA. The Board of Directors is particularly dedicated to hard work and is committed to continuous school improvement. I am impressed with the teaching and support staff and invite you to get to know the workings of the school!

The more you get to know about ABA, the more you will appreciate it. The PTA is supportive and welcoming - so even as parents, you will find a sense of community. Please come visit the school!
