Innovative Education

We believe deeply in the power of experiential learning, both in and out of the classroom, and seek to offer students ongoing opportunities to explore, investigate, research and discover by themselves the world in which they live.

Ramallah Friends School has a long history of being at the forefront of education. From our inception in 1869, the founders sought to expand access to education for girls—something almost unheard of at the time in Palestine. With its commitment to equality, global learning and access, RFS continues to lead in transforming the way learning happens.

We believe deeply in the power of experiential learning, both in and out of the classroom, and seek to offer students ongoing opportunities to explore, investigate, research and discover by themselves the world in which they live.

RFS is the only IB World School in Palestine, authorized by the International Baccalaureate (IB) to offer its Middle Years Programme (MYP) for Grades 6 to 10, and its Diploma Programme (DP) - the world’s most prestigious pre-university qualification - for students in Grade 11 and Grade 12.

RFS has received IB candidate status to implement its Primary Years Programme (PYP) in Lower Kindergarten through Grade 5. Once RFS is granted PYP authorization, it will join a select group of IB continuum schools throughout the world that offer the three IB programmes, spanning from kindergarten through graduation.

In addition to academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities, the school constantly re-evaluates and enhances its teaching and learning practices by providing professional development opportunities for faculty to enhance student learning school-wide. The school’s facilities team is continually working to build and upgrade the school’s infrastructure to provide cutting-edge facilities and resources for both students and teachers, helping RFS remain at the forefront of education in the country and internationally.
