About Al Mawakeb

Al Mawakeb schools are managed by AMSI and provide a comprehensive university preparatory education to students of all backgrounds and nationalities.

Although our medium of instruction is English, we have a multilingual learning environment. Students study the English, French, and Arabic languages from K-12. 

Upon completing twelve years of education, students receive a high school diploma which enables the graduates to pursue higher education worldwide.

At Al Mawakeb, we are convinced that every human being is valuable and deserves the opportunity for self-realization and self-fulfillment. We are committed to providing a high-quality education and applying a distributed leadership model that will encourage our students to embrace accountability, self-reliance and teamwork in their daily lives. We aim to work with parents, students, teachers and other stakeholders to provide all students with a caring, sustainable and inclusive learning environment in which collaboration, innovation, talent, and critical thinking are valued and encouraged, thus empowering children to achieve their fullest potential. We are committed to developing their 21st century skills and building students to become well-rounded, goal-driven and holistic individuals who are advocates of multiculturalism and are capable of solving global, local, and environmental issues. We will challenge students to take personal responsibility for their own learning and to apply their learning to a diverse and changing world.
