As a school we have accomplished a great reputation to be number one in Delta. Such accomplishments are not completed by a single individual but rather require the commitment and hard efforts of students, parents, and staff members. Certainly much of the school’s success can be attributed to the staff’s commitment to ensuring that student learning is most important; however, I would be remiss without acknowledging the leadership and efforts of many of our administrators and staff who are instrumental in keeping the school committed to its goals.
Our school is committed to developing students who are life-long learners and who are equipped with good character, good habits and manners, and the critical thinking skills that are necessary to succeed in the real world. In addition, the school strives to help our students develop into global citizens who are caring, open minded, principled and who will have the confidence and self-esteem to accomplish their dreams and to meet any problems or challenges head on.
To accomplish these goals, the school must work in partnership with parents, and other members of the community. Instruction must be based on best-practice learning strategies which are designed to be student-centered. The school must set high learning expectations and provide learners with ample opportunities to demonstrate their proficiency with the concepts and skills that are targeted for each respective grade level and course. Teachers will be expected to focus on the continuous improvement of their students and to collaborate with their colleagues to develop their respective teaching abilities, which will also be supported by the school’s administration by offering continuous professional development through courses, seminars and workshops. By supporting the professional development of our teachers and staff we hope to provide the ultimate learning environment which is part of our mission and vision and is conducive to high quality education.
I look forward to working with each of you over the course of the upcoming school year and will strive to make Tanta Modern School a safe and healthy learning environment for you children.
