School Profile - History
The school was built
in 1978 under the patronage of the ruler
of Sharjah, H.H. Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohd.
Al Qassimi. The town was growing and there
was a need to provide wholesome education
at affordable prices. No frills, no jargon,
just honest education.
The school is committed
to producing a universal human being, a
person with not just robotic information
at his command, but the wisdom to use it
fort he greater good. A world citizen; erudite,
able to accept diverse cultures and values
while holding on to his own. A humane person;
an eco friendly citizen of the world. These
are big targets, but unless you reach for
the stars, you will not touch the moon!
Summary: What is
Is it a meal ticket? Is
it a CD full of information? Is it the key to
wisdom? Is it a bridge to universal understanding?
We think it is all this and more. It helps us
to understand ourselves and our potential. It
helps us to take the hard times philosophically,
and the good times level headedly.
We believe that children need a free and relaxed
atmosphere to grow in, where they are trusted
and the teachers are approachable.
Every teacher is
well qualified and experienced in his/her
field. But what is more, there is enthusiasm;
innovation and ability to try out new
ideas; a passion to infuse curiosity in
students. Teachers are always approachable
and friendly, making learning a pleasurable
activity. After all “ education
is not a putting in, but a drawing out”.
The teacher student ratio in school is
1:20. There are in-house training programmes,
lectures and visits from overseas experts
to keep the staff abreast with new ideas
The school believes in continuous
assessment of understanding for the purpose of
improvement. With this in mind, students are given
credit for whatever work they do in class for
each of the first two months of each term. This
is supplemented by quizzes and surprise tests.
Care is taken not to repeat the questions so that
students study the textbook and do not learn from
In the third month of each term, a term examination
At the end of the academic year the sum total
of the three term exams and 6 monthly assessments
are put together as the final credit. A child’s
performance is shown against the best performance
in that class for each subject, but no rank is
