Who We Are
‘Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself’. – John Dewey, American philosopher and educator
Since 2011, Al Najah has pioneered a child-centred approach based on three guiding principles: exceptional teaching quality, memorable learning experiences, and great value for money for the families we serve.
We establish and manage schools and nurseries that spark a life-long love of learning in our students, with a clear focus on academic development as well as emotional intelligence, 21st century critical thinking and social skills.
What makes us different?
As schools and nurseries grapple with how to remain relevant, there has been an increasing focus on oversized facilities and curriculum enhancements, which do not necessarily enrich a child’s learning experience. Because we care about the integrity of our educational institutions, our focus is on providing a stimulating academic setting that challenges our students to think and act with confidence, creativity, and courage.
Along with core subjects, students explore critical thinking across the disciplines to prepare them for a vibrant and successful future. And because community is critical to everything we do, each school fosters a strong sense of moral values that will guide students as they learn and grow. It is this substantive thinking that propels our educational experiences beyond what might be expected, to what should be delivered.
Led by experienced and exceptional people.
Leading our drive towards exceptional educational is a carefully chosen group of leaders with decades of experience in international schools across the GCC and SEA region.
Our people understand that what happens in the classroom, and on the playground, is what ultimately matters, because everything they do, is based on our students’ best interests. And because they have proven experience as exceptional teachers and classroom leaders, our faculty and school leadership can quickly adapt to constantly updating trends in learning as well as on-the-ground realities and practicalities.
