The school was founded by individuals who are parents themselves – they believe that learning should not be limited to the classroom, and that memorising is not the only way to learn.
Our school is a welcoming, homely and inclusive school where students of all backgrounds are equally valued. It is a place where Islamic values are nourished and exemplified in all facets of school life. We pride ourselves in providing a safe sanctuary for our students where they can thrive with confidence and self-esteem. We strive to fuel their thirst for enthusiasm and learning.
IDRISSI School is also pioneering education that combines sustainability with Islamic virtues. We are proud to be the world’s only and first Islamic Eco-School. The school’s just-like-home environment is the backdrop to a curriculum that is both formal and informal.
We place importance on “Learning Outside The Classroom” and ensuring that our students understand the modern relevance of learning. Our school facilities include modern science labs, ICT suites as well as libraries. Our other specialties include a small patch garden for students to grow their vegetables which, upon harvesting, are enjoyed by them in the cafeteria. Our yard is an extension of the indoor learning classroom brought out to the open.
As a tribute to nature, we practice composting, care for our pet goats and chickens, and recycle waste materials. Meanwhile, the basketball, futsal and football courts offer the children the chance to run around – before, after or in between classes.
IDRISSI School is a community within a community. Here, we practice a three-sided partnership where teachers, parents, and students all assume a shared responsibility to make the school a success. And of course, to develop wholesome students. We draw upon the strengths and talents of the original home educators – parents, to create positive impacts and outcomes for our student’s learning. We applaud parents’ participation in school events, field trips and to engage on fruitful discussions and sharing of their experiences and skills with our teachers with the objective to enrich our curriculum.
Building upon this partnership, parents will have a stronger bond with their children and as a result, a more meaningful school-guardian relationship will be created to ease the process of making shared decisions as well as in school improvement efforts.
