Dear Parents and students 

Welcome to the 2017/2018 academic year.

As we start a new school year, we always take a look at the feedback from all of our stakeholders (parents, the community, the student, the teachers and the administration). We are encouraged with what we have achieved so far, but can see that we can become even better. Our school’s vision and mission have shifted to reflect these goals. We invite you to continue your support and participation in your child’s academic experience at St Joseph’s Private Language School – American Section.

We are strong believers that we cannot work alone – a triangle of support is needed. This includes the school, the students and you. We strive to teach our students life skills to help them when they reach the work force. While not academic in nature, adhering to a company’s rules leads to promotions and advancement within a company. Therefore, our school also has policies about dress codes, timeliness, and homework assignments. With your understanding and support of the school’s rules and regulations, we will all work to ensure that each student receives his right to a quality education. Our Website (
www.sjsharm.com ) and Education Management System (EMS ems.sjsharm.com ) contains all of the information you need to know to ensure a successful year.. It is updated and modified daily so that you can see your child’s homework assignments, announcements for school events as well as photos and videos of our students.  Please add it to your favorites and visit it frequently.

Thank you for taking the time to familiarize yourself with our school. If you require further information on a particular topic or are unclear about any individual item, do not hesitate to contact us. Remember, you are now part of St. Joseph’s school community and are always welcome here.

We look forward to a productive, fulfilling and successful time together.

Best regards,
Amel El-Maghraby
School Director
Dear Parents,

"Education is not a filling of a pail, but it is the lighting of a candle". Education is a life-long journey. To keep this long road successful and enlightened, our Academic Program is designed to instill into our students a joy for learning by empowering them with the information, knowledge, skills and tools necessary to achieve their aspirations and reach their highest potential as complex critical thinkers, quality producers, collaborative and independent workers, self-directed learners, and responsible contributors to their society.

All students can learn, but they learn at different rates and with different preferential styles and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning. The purpose of education is to challenge all students to develop to their fullest intellectual, social, emotional, and physical potentials.

We must prepare all students for a knowledge-based, technologically rich, and culturally diverse 21
st century. Diversity should be promoted so that isolation of racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups is avoided. St Joseph Private Language School - American Section (SJAS) affirms the uniqueness and dignity of individuals, inspires the pursuit of excellence, instills cultural values, fosters commitment to service, and strives to develop a connection with the world community. In addition, SJAS highly values what is termed as LIFE (Learning, Integrity, Fellowship, and Excellence) which is displayed in the balanced and caring education we offer to our students. 

Let's join hands together to help our kids fulfill their OWN dreams. As educators we will act as facilitators and give our kids the chance to craft their own FUTURE as free decision makers. 
The fact we must remember is that we are educating students for a world that will not be “Ours”, but will be “Theirs”. Give them a chance to be heard.

Mrs. Naglaa Emad.
SJAS Principal
