Children First - Educating young minds since 1961

The School

Iskandhar School had its beginning in 1961 as Hameediya Montessori School. Hameediya Montessori School prepared students for primary grades, who then went on to Aminiya & Majeediyya Schools. In 1961 the school had 185 students with a staff of 6 teachers including the principal.

In 1970 the name of the school was changed from Hameediya to Naasiriyya Montessori school, With the completion of the extension to the original building, the school had 18 classes with about 588 students by 1978.
Mrs. M. Vanculumburge was the first Principal. She continued her service till 1974. We remain indebted to her for her love and dedication to the school and thank her for her service.

During this period, the name of the school changed to its present name Iskandhar School, corresponding to the name of Sultan Ibrahim Iskandhar Siri Kularanmeeba Mahaa Radhun.

In 1990 Iskandhar School became a full-fledged primary school with grades 1 to 5.

At the end of 1999 Iskandhar had a student population of 1519. And with the introduction of grade 6 in and grade 7 in 2000 it increased to 2115 students. Today we have a population of 2280 students studying in the school.

At Iskandhar School we believe it is essential to provide each child with the opportunity, environment and encouragement to enjoy the achievable learning experience and help him/her acquire a wide range of skills and knowledge. We aim to foster a love for our religion Islam and life long learning, instill a sense of responsibility, respect, tolerance, self discipline and independence, inculcate good values and help our students to become useful and respectful citizens in the society.

It is also our aim to develop a good partnership with parents, and to seek their participation in expanding the child's experience of learning.
