A message from our founders
Fitra Community School (Fitra) started off as a dream which only by Allah’s will has now become a reality. Alhumdullilah.
We know that school environments significantly influences a child’s character, impressions of self, attitudes towards learning and social abilities.
We heard from many parents who complained about their children becoming disillusioned with learning, losing their creativity, having challenges with bullying, and often a moral standard that wasn’t acceptable.
We listened to leading educators who described schooling as needing more personalized education that focused on the whole child, less standardized teaching and an emphasis on building skills in children that would be relevant for them regardless of what they are faced with when they go out into the world on their own.
We studied what was working well (and not so well!) in other schools.
And then created Fitra, a learning environment that is consciously designed to facilitate being able to individualise a child’s education. There’s so much to say about what we do at school. To get a glimpse be sure to read about some of our Key Features by downloading the PDF document below.
