The primary objective at Ibn Seena English High
school was to create a safe environment where children would be
encouraged to learn through trial and experiential activities.
The children would be encouraged to take risks, ask questions
and participate actively in school life and activities with the goal of
creating confident, enquiring minds. Students would also be
guided towards self discipline as an emphasis would be placed on
self-regulation instead of regimentation. A natural evolution
of such an environment and approach would be the creation of an ethos
of respect for self and others. Students would embrace
diversity and a collaborative culture would evolve.
Today Ibn Seena English High School represents the
realization of this vision. For almost 35 years this school
has been true to it’s original philosophy and approach. The
quality of the graduates is evident in the number of students who are
accepted in leading colleges around the world and also in the number of
students who go on to succeed in their professions. The
Alumni record is a testament to the achievement of these past students.
Ibn Seena is exceptionally proud of the fact that it is an
institution that has consistently offered the highest quality of
education at a affordable price - This has allowed many families access
to quality education which would otherwise be out of their reach.
The majority of students at Ibn Seena come from homes where
English is never spoken and either one or both parents have not even
completed High school education. In spite of this
handicap, students at Ibn Seena perform exceptionally well in
International assessments and their achievements contribute to the
advancement of their families.
We provide access to affordable education for all,
within a fertile and safe environment where students learn to think
creatively and translate those ideas into action. We equip
students with a holistic set of skills and attitudes that empower them
to be successful in any and all endeavors they choose to undertake in
their lives. By doing so we create students who are
enlightened, confident, self-directed learners who embrace and respect
diversity. These students become active contributors,
collaborators, and leaders within their communities, families and
We see ourselves creating a generation of socially
adept, ecologically conscious, and tolerant innovators who can adapt to
global situations and changes. We will achieve this by our
continued commitment to providing quality education with a dedicated
team of teachers. Our teachers will continue to receive
professional development training to enable them to meet the evolving
needs of the 21st Century learners through the use of creative teaching
techniques, technological resources and differentiated instruction.
