Why a Fortes Education
We at Fortes Education believe in imparting knowledge and skills to students as well as developing their character, personal leadership, enterprise and work ethic, and values so they can create their own success as thoughtful, confident, principled and dynamic individuals in the world. Fifteen reasons differentiate a Fortes Education and school:
We don’t just Teach, We Inspire!
It is said that education is what you remember when you leave school. Inspirational teaching creates learning experiences that last a lifetime. It is having a great class teacher who sparks your love for problem-solving perhaps using mathematics or computational algorithms, or who ignites your passion for scientific inquiry through memorable lessons spent in a science laboratory, or who develops your can-do spirit in challenges while on the football team. It is this passion that allows students to define themselves, find their calling in life, and achieve fulfilment, success and happiness as adults.
Simply put, our teachers inspire and that’s what separates them from the rest.
Our Heritage – Over 4 Decades of Educational Expertise
We employ experienced and dynamic senior leaders and teachers. We have robust systems of school operation that enable our schools to deliver consistently high educational standards. And we know how to create a culture of care where students achieve their potential and enjoy their experiences, parents are positively engaged, and teachers are fulfilled by their work and motivated to deliver their best every day.
Students are given a myriad of learning opportunities – through academic study and co-curricular activities, and personalised and group learning – to develop their ‘multiple intelligences’ and ‘core skills’ which include the ability to apply knowledge, think creatively and problem-solve; the ability to express oneself articulately; the ability to persevere and develop confidence; the ability to work with others; and the ability to learn.
MultiSmart LearningTM also develops in students the values, character and leadership qualities to influence and change the world. Our students stand out by their pursuit of excellence and will to persevere. And they distinguish themselves as model citizens with high standards of compassion and tolerance.
Academically Rigorous & Enriched Education
Inspection indicators show that the quality of education delivered in a typical Fortes school is ‘Good with Outstanding features” as rated by KHDA’s inspection bureau, DSIB.
With exceptional school infrastructure, underpinned by a strong curriculum covering – Mathematics, English, the Sciences, Computing (ICT), Design & Technology, the Humanities, Education in Human Values, the Creative and Performing Arts, Modern Foreign Languages, Physical Education, Sports, and a host of Enrichment activities – we deliver a world-class education.
We encourage students to be active learners and to openly challenge, debate and discuss ideas with their teachers and peers. The curricula delivered by our schools lay a strong emphasis on developing critical thinking, problem-solving, communication ability, personal effectiveness and perseverance, and ‘learning how to learn’.
Human Values Programme
Our schools have a heavy focus on philanthropy with all our stakeholders regularly participating in various charity, community and volunteer work, and students taught the meaning of real compassion.
Specially trained in online instruction and “blended” learning solutions, our STEAM teachers are subject-matter experts who use rich multi-media curriculum – online courses, lab simulations, games, podcasts, guest speakers in virtual classrooms, and participation in online STEAM clubs and science fairs – to convey complex concepts effectively.
Technology Enabled Learning
By learning in diverse cultural environments, our students become true global citizens. World geography and different customs and cultures are all integrated into the curriculum. Students learn about, celebrate and appreciate each other’s culture while developing their own cultural identity and individuality and taking pride in it.
Parent Partnerships for Student Success
We are as proud of your culture as you and your child are, and will bring the diversity of your culture into our curriculum and your child’s learning, celebrating it and making your child proud of his identity.
