Welcome to Al- Hayat International School (H.I.S.), a private co-educational Islamic school, situated on Aramoun area, a serene hilltop location with scenic surroundings to the south of Beirut, Lebanon. H.I.S. is growth-minded and continuously seeks improvement. Our commitment to our school improvement led us to renew our strategic plan which is properly ambitious in its educational reach and scope and needs to accommodate the remarkable range of people that it serves. While we are justifiably proud of what the school has been able to achieve during its first two years, we like to think that we are forward thinking and progressive as well as, cumulatively, seasoned.
Inspired by its name Al-Hayat (meaning Life), H.I.S. offers an active, lively, academically challenging, socially engaging, and culturally rich, relevant and significant concept-based curriculum. In its second year, specifically during February 2016, H.I.S. was recognized as an IB-PYP candidate school. The team is dedicated and hardly working to meet the requirements for authorization during 2017- 2018 academic year. Incremental planning and collaboration set the tone. We are involved in initiatives that extend and advance our curriculum, while often leading the way through coaching and innovation.
At HIS, students are very much at the center of our educational program. Nurturing students to reach their potential is our fundamental purpose. We fully understand that taking risks and being supported along the way leads to meeting one’s potential. Furthermore, HIS believes strongly in guiding students to develop strength of character and to experience motivational learning which provide impetus for action, creativity, and service. We strive to develop students who are principled and balanced and who appreciate rigor and learning by taking actions. This draws the path to collaborative and authentic curricular engagements which better prepares our students to join the world outside of our school and transfer their acquired skills to engage in and deal with real life situations confidently and comfortably.
H.I.S. emphasizes the importance of education being a collaborative exercise, involving the student, the teachers and the family. The faculty, staff and parents are constantly working to keep our curriculum and program offerings evolving, in line with changing world demands, to prepare our students for a successful future of work and service. We welcome wider community involvement in the school and encourage continued communication.
When it comes to the steerers, each and every member of our pedagogical and administrative staff provides opportunities for our students to be fully engaged in their learning journeys and are supported in doing so from the leadership team. We acknowledge that we must collaborate to ensure achievement and personal development, and group development as well. HIS pedagogical team is engaged in a wide variety of learning opportunities to develop their skills and to be impacted by the progressive nature of H.I.S. curricular program. We are fortunate to be surrounded by supportive community members who are leading us to be better able to realize our success together and to learn from one another’s passions. HIS prizes the diversity of its talents and world views and strives to create a culture where everyone can flourish.
