Eastwood Schools commits to impacting the world by teaching students to be driven by a balance of mind, body and soul, and to couple knowledge with integrity, ambition with compassion, and achievement with service.
At Eastwood International School, all students practice mindfulness meditation enriching their mind, body and soul.
Mindfulness combines meditation and relaxation with the end goal being to increase productivity and decrease stress levels as well as promote creativity, improve concentration, happiness levels, and foster peace of mind.
Eastwood International School is the first and only school in Lebanon to integrate coding into our curriculum for all of our students. Coding helps students become better problem solvers by teaching them to use logic and reasoning.
In an increasingly connected and digital world, teaching students to code will enable them to be better prepared for the jobs of the future and even for jobs that don’t exist yet!
The Duke of Edinburgh International Award
The Duke of Edinburgh International Award is an internationally recognized program whose aim is to challenge participants from the age of 14 to 24 in a wide range of activities that include learning a new skill, physical activity, and service.
The program is completed by hundreds of thousands of students across the world every year and is present in over 240 countries including Lebanon for the first time ever!
At the end of each of the three incrementally harder levels (Bronze, Silver, and Gold), all participants must complete an Adventurous Journey. The Adventurous Journey, or AJ as it is commonly referred to, is a hiking/camping trip of at least 10 km (for the Bronze level) that the participants must undertake alone. Skills required to undertake the Adventurous Journey include learning leadership skills, navigating with a map and compass, cooking for themselves, setting up the camp, working in a group, and learning first aid among many other.
