Eastwood College was founded in 1973 with the vision of Mr. Amine Michel Khoury to provide an equitable educational community for all learners. The board of advisors has since been in effect, overseeing major curriculum and policy decisions.
Since its foundation, Eastwood College has kept abreast with best pedagogical practices. A holistic approach to education distinguishes us from other schools; our focus is on the social, emotional and academic nurturing of our learners.
Our goal to recruit a highly qualified, diverse teaching workforce supports the effort to maintain internationally recognized standards in curriculum and teaching.
Small class sizes ensure that students with distinct educational competencies’ and backgrounds receive the individual attention and care they require.
The school’s curriculum is based on active construction of meaning through rigorous coursework that is intellectually challenging and culturally appropriate. Students explore topics in depth through a method of inquiry, which allows them to ask and tackle meaningful questions.
There is great attention to social interactions within the curriculum, such as conversations, discussions, joint work, and debate. Such interactions provide opportunities for students to learn through observing the performance of others, receiving feedback about their own performance, hearing alternative points of view, and engaging in the exchange of ideas. There is a periodic review of the curriculum to ensure that high standards are maintained.
Eastwood College provides a supportive environment in which learners can develop their academic potential, their personal and social awareness, and their career goals. The school offers a diversified curriculum that allows students to select the course of study that best meets their educational objectives and the requirements of Lebanese and international institutions of higher learning.
Existing programs and practices are subject to periodic review and assessment. Equipment and facilities are regularly upgraded. An organized program for professional staff development ensures that the quality of instruction is consistent with best-practice educational research.
Eastwood College strives to be a leading educational community in the Middle East for students of all nationalities and religions.
The success of our vision depends on the commitment of all members of the school community to take an active part in its effort to provide an instructional system that conforms to the high standards of international education. Eastwood College is committed to a program of continuous improvement and development.
