   Harcourts International School

         ~Inspiring Excellence

From the Principal's Desk

HIS since its inception has been delivering quality education for girls with an amazing blend of morals values as proof of the dictum "Learning is Synonymus with Schooling." 

Today the school occupies a unique position among the international schools as an inspirational role model for providing the right combination of modernity with modesty by having always embarked on quality learning through dedicated individualistic teaching and core religious principles to stand the test of times.

The school motto " Inspiring Excellence" has made harcourtians reach the highest pinnacle in all spheres of their school life. The enthusiasm shown for sports and co curricular activities equals the keenness shown for academic excellence. 

All events in the school are a fine display of their talents and skills brought about by the able guidance of the teachers who have dedicated themselves to the betterment of their future, 

I proudly salute the management , staff and my dear girls for making our  school a pleasant place of learning.

My passion for advocating girl's education has been strengthened with my appointment as Principal of this respected institution and i will strive to bring forth an excellent generation of worthy women for the progress of the nation. InSha Allah.
