Arab Evangelical Episcopal School, Ramallah, West Bank
Founded in 1954 as a home for impoverished and orphaned girls, the Arab Evangelical Episcopal School has evolved into a K-12 academic co-ed school serving 845 students and their families.
The school operates upon the premise that fulfilling its Christian mission comes through serving the Palestinian community in all its diversity, regardless of students’ religion, race, gender, and socioeconomic status.
The school’s mission is to develop the student as a “whole person,” to be respected as a human being, having his or her own unique character.
The school seeks to educate young Palestinians to become active citizens who participate in developing a humanistic and democratic society, enhancing religious and national heritage in Palestine, and promoting mutual understanding and tolerance among religions and cultures.
