Welcome to Al-Iqbal International School. Before joining our school, it is very important to know the school mission statement. This mission statement is the overall umbrella that guides all the school system and school personnel. It is implemented in all the scools facilities such as classrooms, playground and even in the extra-curricular activities program.
"Building for the Future: Educating for a Lifetime"
Al-Iqbal International School realizes that children require consistent, challenging programs that capture their interest and prepare them for a lifetime learning. They require knowledge and skills that will help them compete in a global community and allow them to lead lives of integrity and satisfaction, as citizens and as individuals. Our school offers students a safe and stimulating environment incorporating an American based curriculum in preparation for a higher education. The American curriculum is unique in being modern, up-to-date, practical, performance-oriented, technologically advanced, supporting cross-curricular or interdisciplinary studies, and promoting analytical and critical skills. We are a dynamic, respectful and responsive community actively encouraging students to maximize their potential abilities. The mandate of Al-Iqbal International School is to maintain, strengthen and promote academic excellence in all disciplines. We also encourage students to be invovled and to create a healthy balance of activities . Our aims at meeting the individual needs of all its students. The academic programs are based on knowledge, skills—the application of this information to situations, and values-the acceptance of the information and application as being worthwhile and meaningful. We believe this is the basis of sound learning.
