Mrs. Nasr

Head of High School

Secondary Section

Welcome to the High School Section at BESGB!

Our mission is to embody the vision of creating a thriving educational environment that nurtures growth, curiosity, and prepares our students for the journey beyond high school. We are dedicated to fostering a safe and stimulating atmosphere where critical thinking, effective communication, and collaborative skills are cultivated.

Academic Excellence and Beyond

Our commitment extends beyond academics. We strive to equip our learners with a robust support system encompassing academic success, social-emotional well-being, and the development of essential soft skills. Through collaboration with families, dedicated staff, and guidance counselors, we ensure our students are empowered to excel in their educational journey.

Engagement and Opportunities 

There’s an array of avenues for high schoolers to actively engage and explore their interests. Whether it’s through participation in athletics, diverse activity classes, engaging clubs like Model United Nations, language societies, leadership groups, or involvement in the student body, our students discover opportunities to connect, lead, and expand their horizons.

Empowering Tomorrow's Leaders

These experiences not only allow our students to delve into their passions but also facilitate the forging of new friendships and the honing of leadership abilities. We believe in nurturing well-rounded individuals who are not only academically prepared but also equipped with invaluable leadership skills essential for success beyond high school.

The Secondary Cycle is a 3 – year cycle consisting of two programs:
The Lebanese High School program and the  American High School program.

Lebanese High School Program

The Lebanese High School Program (Sec.I –> Sec.III) follows a curriculum set by the Ministry Of Education and prepares students for the official Lebanese Baccalaureate examination.  This program is an English track for core subjects including English Language Arts, Mathematics, Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics), Computer Science, Sociology, Economics and Philosophy. History, Geography and Civics are taught in Arabic along with the study of Arabic literature and language. In addition, French is taught as a foreign language and students take Drama and Physical Education classes.

American High School Program

The American High School Program (Grades 10 –> 12) is designed for Foreign and Lebanese students who meet government requirements for exemption from the Arabic language study. This program leads to a High School Diploma. The courses in this program are also taught in English for the following subjects: English language Arts, Mathematics, Science (Life Science, Chemistry, and Physics), Computer science, Economics, Business, World History, Drama and Physical Education. French and Arabic are taught as foreign languages.

Learners of both programs are prepared for the following standardized tests: The PSAT 10/ PSAT/NMSQT as well as Digital SAT standardized exams.  They also have the added advantage of sitting for these tests in the familiar setting of their own school.
