It is often said that it takes the whole village to raise a child. It is an onerous responsibility we share, knowing well that the parents have handed us their most valuable assets and we are to make good of it. In the age of peripheral learning enabling children to discover their true worth is a shared responsibility. By harnessing and challenging the Human Capital, we at The Ummed International School wish to unleash the inherent energy which typifies the young, give a fillip to lifelong learning where peel by peel, the young discover their likes and dislikes, dreams and aspirations, interests and abilities, failure and success, relationships, responsibilities and realization of the real purpose of life.

‘Richard Bach’ in ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ says, “How much more there is now to living! Instead of our drab slogging forth and back to the fishing boats, there’s a reason to life! We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill. We can be free! We can learn to fly!” Conformity, unfortunately, leads to mediocrity.’ We at The Ummed International School hope to give wings to our young.

We hope to build a vibrant, energetic and egalitarian school society which thrives on sound traditions and ethos and yet open and receptive to experiment and innovation, the hallmarks of contemporary time. We will let our children plunge into chaos or else they would fossilize. We want them to throw off the bow lines, enjoy the flourish and sail away from the safe harbour. The harbour is the safest place for the ship but it’s not meant to be there. If only they could catch the trade winds in their sails and Explore, Dream and Discover!
