At Rúhíyyih School, we offer a diverse range of educational programmes designed to foster the holistic development of our students. We believe in the power of knowledge as a transformative force in one's life, and we strive to provide educational opportunities that can benefit not only the individual but also the wider community, in accordance with the following principle:
"Knowledge is as wings to man's life, and a ladder for his ascent. Its acquisition is incumbent upon everyone. The knowledge of such sciences, however, should be acquired as can profit the peoples of the earth."
— Selection from the Bahá’í Holy Writings

Nurturing Empowered Individuals through Holistic Education
At Rúhíyyih School, we are dedicated to providing a well-rounded educational experience that not only focuses on academic excellence but also cultivates values, character, and a sense of social responsibility. Inspired by the Bahá’í International Community's belief in the significance of the right to education, we aim to empower our students to become compassionate, knowledgeable, and active contributors to society. The Bahá’í International Community emphasizes that education should go beyond the mere acquisition of knowledge and encompass the development of the whole person, including intellectual, social, physical, and spiritual capacities.
The Bahá’í International Community recognizes that education plays a pivotal role in the realization of human rights and the advancement of society. At Rúhíyyih School, we share this conviction and strive to create a learning environment that not only fosters intellectual growth but also instills moral values and ethical conduct. We believe that education should equip individuals with the necessary tools to navigate a diverse world, promoting understanding, tolerance, and friendship among all.
Our educational programs embrace the principle of the oneness of humanity, encouraging unity among diverse elements and nurturing respect for human rights. We emphasize the importance of moral and spiritual education, as well as the acquisition of knowledge, to foster character development, compassion, justice, and respect for all. By integrating these essential elements into our curriculum, we aim to equip our students with the skills and attitudes necessary for cooperation, social service, and the creation of a just and peaceful society.
At Rúhíyyih School, we recognize that education is a lifelong journey. Therefore, we not only prioritize universal compulsory education in childhood but also promote a lifelong thirst for knowledge and a desire for excellence. We believe that education should extend beyond the classroom, continuing throughout an individual's life to facilitate personal growth and contribute to the advancement of civilization. We are committed to supporting our students in their ongoing educational endeavours, empowering them to continue their intellectual and moral development beyond their time at our school.
By embracing a holistic approach to education and aligning with the principles set forth by the Bahá’í International Community, we aspire to create a nurturing and transformative educational environment. Through our programs and teachings, we aim to foster empowered individuals who not only excel academically but also embody the values of compassion, justice, and respect for all, making a positive impact on their communities and the world at large.
"Arts, crafts and sciences uplift the world of being, and are conducive to its exaltation. Knowledge is as wings to man’s life, and a ladder for his ascent. Its acquisition is incumbent upon everyone. The knowledge of such sciences, however, should be acquired as can profit the peoples of the earth, and not those which begin with words and end with words. In truth, knowledge is a veritable treasure for man, and a source of glory, of bounty, of joy, of exaltation, of cheer and gladness unto him. Happy the man that cleaveth unto it, and woe betide the heedless."

We view each child as naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating their own learning journey. Our thoughtfully prepared learning environment provides a supportive atmosphere for children to explore, discover, and develop foundational skills. The Pre-Primary School includes the following levels:
- Lower Kindergarten
- Upper Kindergarten
Students at our Pre-Primary School not only engage in academic pursuits but also have the opportunity to participate in hand work and music classes. These classes allow them to develop their creativity and artistic abilities. Additionally, we believe in the importance of connecting with nature and understanding our environment. Therefore, our students also go on outdoor excursions, such as visits to the Zoo, botanical gardens, and other places that enable them to appreciate nature and learn more about the world around them. These excursions serve as valuable learning experiences and contribute to their holistic development.
