Head Of School
Welcome to IBCA International School in Alexandria
It is a privilege to welcome you to the website of IBCA School. One of the great features of Alexandria is the various opportunities available to parents. If you are considering IBCA School as a community you would like your child(ren) to be part of, then the information included in this website will show you why we believe that IBCA can provide the best possible education for you not only in Alexandria but also in Egypt.
The education at IBCA values commitment. We believe that a first class education is characterized by what a young person can take with him to become valuable, active and caring citizen who have a positive remarkable impact upon their community.
Education in IBCA is based upon five main pillars:
Critical thinking involves is the education of the intellect where understanding, problem solving, sound judgment and constructive criticism are developed in our students.
Creativity, or education of the imagination provides the ability to make connections and experience the world in different ways.
Challenge, or education of the will, develops mental and physical courage and the ability to overcome one’s fears and limitations.
Compassion is the education of the emotions and is critical in developing the children’s ability not only in identifying with other people but also a willingness to take action in order to help them.
Contemplation is the education of the spirit, which develops in a young person the capacity for wonder and a sense that one is part of something larger than one’s self.
From a programmatic perspective, our unique educational programs provide a level of individual challenge and academic rigor that is different from what many of us would have experienced at school. However, just as our inquiry-based approach to learning requires students to be active participants in their own education, we expect parents to be engaged in the learning process as well.
While our curriculum focuses on what students need, our Parent Association, Parent Relations Executive and Senior Leadership Team focus on the adults in the community as well.
Then you will experience the real difference of IBCA which is the very tangible sense of community that exists here at the school. We want our students, parents, staff and visitors to feel welcome and as though they have always belonged on our campus. Fostering this sense of belonging and culture of kindness comes from hiring, training and retaining the right mix of people who are extremely talented at what they do and are committed to developing a positive school climate, one that helps everyone make the most of our programs.
I look forward to welcoming you to IBCA.
