Message from the Principal 

Assalam AlaikumI have been a global educator for over 30 years with intensive school management, and educational leadership experience including teaching, ownership, and directorship of several private schools abroad and the United states.  I hold a degree in administration, economical & political sciences.

Throughout my career, I have established two gig International schools, organized, led lectures, workshops, and seminars in schools and universities centering on holistic education and student centered education experience. My philosophy as an educator is to achieve peace and prosperity through education and transferred knowledge.

Alongside each other, parents, teachers, administration and staff, hand-in-hand, we aim to cultivate Islamic values like, honesty, patience, persistence, collaboration, dedication, and hard work to empower students to make meaningful contributions to their communities and to society. A shared goal to help our students build skills that will enable them to grow, become meaningful contributors to their community and provide them with a sense of personal value and fulfillment.

I look forward to working with you during the year to provide your children with the best possible Islamic educational environment.  One that never fails to empower them fosters a community that helps them understand their impact and realize their potential. Your commitment to us is valued and a shared communication strategy is an important part of our educational process, with that It is crucial that we work together to fulfill this vision.

Our unique philosophy, rigorous Islamic academic curriculum, safe and caring environment are standards we hold ourselves to.  We believe in excellence and an exceptional quality of education.  An everyday experience that empowers students and ingrains their future with growth and continuous learning as they craft a solid foundation for an outstanding future they deserve. We are one team and one family.

Please remember, that my door is always open if you have any suggestion, question or concern.

Thank you for entrusting me with the opportunity to educate your children.
