It is a great honor and privilege to be the School Director of AlItqan American School where we set high academic standards and support students in realizing their full potential. AlItqan American School located in Al Azra, Sharjah, is known for its academic rigor, broad and balanced opportunities, child-centered pastoral care, innovative and high quality teaching, state of the art IT facilities and ultimately well-rounded students. Here, positive learning experiences where students can thrive and develop as individuals in a secure and caring environment. Every child is cherished and supported both through their achievements and challenges.
We at AIAS are proud to be part of the UAE VISION 2021 NATIONAL AGENDA initiated by SHEIKH MOHAMMED BIN RASHID AL MAKTOUM which includes eight key objectives to pave the way towards the next phase of outstanding education in the UAE which we wish to be part of.
We as a school aim to spark intellectual curiosity and encourage students a love of learning in a family orientated environment where they feel secure by being treated as an individual. We believe in high quality bespoke pastoral support, which recognizes each child with unique needs. At all stages of the educational journey, students learn from both their teachers and their peers. We strive to create a talented yet diverse student community where children thrive in each other’s company and appreciate different perspectives.
Our school is a forward thinking community, continually evolving to meet the needs of the modern world. This innovative approach has enabled the school to develop a dynamic curriculum to provide an outstanding all-round education for our students. We boast a diverse and stimulating curriculum with further opportunities through our constantly developed enrichment and extension programme together with a series of in-school clubs. Committed and dedicated teachers are an essential ingredient in our school. The school invests in the development of its staff and sets high professional expectations. However, of great importance to us is the love of learning, happy atmosphere and family inclusiveness of the school.
We believe in a strong partnership between students, parents and staff to strive to make sure communication is valued and vital for the progress of our children. We can do this only together.
I look forward to consolidate our parent, school partnership throughout the school year.
AIAS – A place “where children love to learn”
