Message from the President

I am delighted to welcome you to the Avicenna International School of Tehran (AIS), the first private international school in Iran permitted and accredited by the Supreme Council of Education of I.R.Iran. It is only thanks to the international educational expertiese of our colleagues, long and intensive preparation period of about 5 years that AIS can start its educational activities in Tehran in 2015.

Today, more than anytime, there is a need in Iran for a unique model which can bring the educational requirements of Islamic Republic of Iran to match the standards of international education. This important responsibility has been trusted to Avicenna International School of Tehran. AIS will remain truly international. Our team is dedicated to the high values and standards of education and humanity. Through academic education and appropriate trainings, we have rendered ourselves to play our parts in raising the future responsible citizens of the world, regardless of their nationality, Iranian and non-Iranian.

Our teaching staff is selected with care and scrutiny and undergoes a training program; indeed we have “Teacher Training Courses” for our staff every summer. Teachers and students stand on the same side and work hard together for the same goal. We aim at improving our academic standards. Our students are preparied to undertake their roles in their challenging, fast-changing, technology-rich future societies.
We follow a holistic approach towards educating our students. We respect our students and consider their needs with bio-psycho-social considerations as a whole. We do not have a group of students, or classes, we have “individuals” with unique characteristics and needs. We welcome our students and try to know them individually. Our teaching and non-teaching staffs together with the students form the community of AIS. This is the motivation which has kept us on the movement for about 30 years now.

Many of my past students are now successful medical doctors, engineers or businessmen in Iran, Europe or United States. I never forget the day when I received a post card from of my Chinese students exactly on my birthday. I felt so great and proud, from over a billion Chinese, there is one person who knows me and cares for me. I am even happier now when I hear from my students from many countries around the world via social media, which has made the life easier in this sense. Before I get retired, it is my desire, with the help of my colleagues, to see AIS has developed to one of the best international schools in the region or even world and many more of my students can share their success stories with me.

At AIS, we place great emphasis on “problem-based learning”, “interactive education” and “critical thinking”. We will not only teach biology, chemistry, mathematics and other subjects, we will teach our students how to learn these subjects, how and where to find answers to their questions, how to solve their problems and feel confident enough to bring their new ideas to the attention of their teachers and classmates. We have combined all these with our Avicenna methodology for education.

We believe that our students can and should explore their potentials and capacities. They should achieve maximum development of their competencies with the help of educators at AIS. High academic achievements, successful higher education and preparation for undertaking independent social roles are among our goals for AIS students.

Curriculum at AIS is rigorous and recognized worldwide. It is designed to prepare our students for higher education in Iran, Europe and North America. We have extensively reviewed British, American, Canadian and other European educational systems as well as the national Iranian system and have developed the Avicenna Educational System which gurantees the success of our students once they join any secondary school or higher educational institute of the mentioned systems.

We welcome students living in Iran or from negibouring countries or other parts of the world. AIS is your home away from home.

We are looking forward to having you among our students.

Warm regards,

Dr. Shahrokh MirzaHosseini
President,
Member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts
