Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is based on three pillars characterized by Quality-Excellence, Value-based approach and holistic view.

The quality excellence is exemplified by the academic area which relies heavily on strong academic performance provided by well selected teachers and staff. This excellence spills over students’ experience, research and teaching, faculty and staff support in addition to communication.

The values-based approach is apparent via the students’ character; students at Saint – Georges are developed and nurtured holistically to realize their full potential.

The holistic view is revealed by the extra-curricular activities which provide a plethora of opportunities to be seized by students based on the belief that such activities shape and build the positive attitude of our students and put the real world in perspective. This contributes to putting the theoretical framework into practice.

In addition to these pillars we are committed to the following in our educational approach:

·    Fostering the moral values of students in an environment characterized by its diversity

·    Providing dedicated, passionate and qualified principals and teachers

·    Cultivating respect for the environment and all its resources

·    Helping students to exercise their full potential through empowerment and working on their potential ·    Emphasizing on analytical and creative thinking as a means to preparing students to the workplace and life.

·    Producing students proficient in English-the lingua franca of our world- while enhancing our students’ verbal and nonverbal communication skills.

·    Cultivating the concept of social responsibility by showing responsibility to all our stakeholders.

·    Cultivating cooperation, teamwork, good health, emotional stability and maturity and encouraging  interest in sports, games, clubs and social activities.

·    Building the capacity of our faculty and staff via continuous training and development to maintain their core competencies and keep their knowledge updated in a fast pace moving world.

·    Preparing students to be great leaders and positive contributors to their communities and the whole world.

·    Focusing on and engaging in critical contemporary issues

Our Vision

Lucid vision for quality excellence, distinction in teaching and education and being recognized as an inspiration beacon in our community by preparing citizens who are academically rounded and socially responsible.

Our vision aligns with rapid shifts in the global economy, society, and environment, which animate our mission and our values:

 Creativity, innovation, and a desire to challenge the status quo, both in what and how we teach and in the intellectual ambitions of the School itself.

 Social engagement, orienting students' academic experience to help them become critically engaged citizens dedicated to solving problems and contributing to the public good. This comes as a consequence to the act that Saint Georges School itself has a sense of citizenship in its community and obligation towards its primary and secondary stakeholders.

Saint Georges School embraces these principles and innovates to address shifts in the global economy, society, and environment that require individuals to grapple with complex problems, pursue more fluid and flexible career pathways, and collaboratively create change.
