Irfan School is an ever growing and prospering educational institution that educates and motivates students from diverse backgrounds to become life -long learners and responsible citizens with strong ethical and spiritual values. It aims at developing the child's personality in a holistic and harmonious way allowing him/her to nurture his/her potentials for self-realization in an atmosphere of trust and self-confidence.
Therefore, we strive to provide opportunities for learning through shared experiences, to enable the student to learn, develop and recognize the resources within themselves to know how to deal with the pressures of today's society and make a constructive contribution to it. lrfan School provides various enriched educational opportunities and operates in an environment that promotes tolerance and compassion.
The story of Irfan School is a story of dedication, vision, and ambition. It is the story of a succession of individuals and their devotion to an institution. Irfan School is distinguished by implementing a unique system of education that offers a rigorous curriculum emphasizing the core subject matters to students from 3+ to 18.

"Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil." ― C.S. Lewis
We believe that:
Each person is respected and valued as one created in the image and likeness of God
Spreading knowledge enhances the goodwill of human kind and society
Students are prepared to contribute actively and constructively to the shaping of a better world
Each person has equal worth and should treat others with respect
Each person has unlimited potential and must have the opportunity to learn and develop into a well-rounded individual
Learning is a shared partnership between teachers, students and parents
Irfan has always tried to provide a secure environment for students with a wide range of academic ability.
The curriculum is designed to give students the broadest possible education, whilst preparing them to further their education in their chosen college or university in Lebanon and abroad it is consistent with Lebanese Law to prepare students for the official exams of the Lebanese government.
So based on this curriculum, we endeavor to encourage those who find lessons difficult and, at the same time, to challenge those who find academic work easy. As far as possible we resist the temptation to 'drop' students for academic or disciplinary reasons, unless it becomes clear that a change of school might benefit them.
The Coordinating Department at Irfan acknowledges the importance of providing support for children with special needs.
As a result we have developed a special remedial and reinforcement program for such students. Moreover, this department takes great care in advising parents and students on the most appropriate university for each individual.
The School is divided into four main Cycles as follows:
The Preschool : Nursery - KG1 & KG2
Basic Education : Cycle 1: Grades 1, 2, & 3
Cycle 2: Grades 4, 5, & 6
