We believe that it is the responsibility of the school to help students build their personality and morals. Values-based education proved more effective learning and promotes continuous improvement of personal, social, moral and economic wellbeing. It fosters significant values in the society. Modern civilizations are built and developed based not only on Science and information but also on morals and values.
Personal Success in life requires both academic and moral competence. Our moral set is derived from Islamic religion which emphasizes the below principles:
Respect others including, myself, my teachers, my colleagues, school rules, and my environment, body and books.
Tolerating the diversity, contributing to the team, demonstrating self-responsibility and self-discipline.
Believing in equality among students and their rights to get the best education and challenges them to reach their maximum potentials.
Ensuring that happiness is not simply maintained when you reach a goal but rather being experienced while striving towards achieving it. We teach them to set up their life goals, plan for it and enjoy the persistent continuous work to achieve it.
Expecting the staff to be responsible for the values program that supports the personal, social and spiritual development of every student at the school.
We admit that our mission cannot be carried out by our staff only. Parents are our partners throughout the way and we should to share with them our plans and expectations and perhaps arrange the procedures between them and our team to insure the harmony between the school and the families well established.
