There are multiple models for educational instruction and with schools adopting diverse teaching strategies and curricula, the question then arises: what attributes are associated with successful schools?
Academic performance has long been used to gauge school success, which is understandable since most curricula are designed to focus primarily on the education of future generations. However, schools are evolving and becoming more holistic, expanding and updating their methodologies and offerings to ensure that students are prepared to thrive in today’s technological and digital age.
In the digital age, the term “successful schools” can refer to institutions that offer enriching learning experiences and activities, ranging from the arts to STEM. Offering a wide range of subjects in addition to a core curriculum is crucial to promoting vital skills necessary for the future, such as problem solving, analytical and critical-thinking skills, encouraging creativity, and sparking our students’ inherent curiosity. . Knowledge in digital technologies subjects will also help prepare them for the ever-changing landscape of future professions and job market demands.
These soft skills maybe the currency of the future, but teachers remain critical in igniting students’ interest in learning. Educators need to be highly-qualified, well-prepared and suited for the teaching profession. They must be dedicated, caring and supportive and should be able to inspire their students’ curiosity, encourage their joy in learning, and tailor their teaching and learning for individualized needs.
BEAM management’s principles reflect the attributes and skills required for a truly successful school and are found in each of our programs and teaching faculty. Our institutions encourage a positive school culture, which promotes well-being, supports the holistic growth of the children, and improves staff satisfaction and professional development.
Alongside these indispensable qualities, we offer a combination of Western education and Islamic principles. Children will be prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities that will be brought by automation and AI while maintaining their strong moral character and a sense of community, based on Islamic values. We believe that we can only be successful if we encourage cultural identity, create an understanding of moral and social issues, and teach the value of compassion, respect, integrity, and tolerance.
