Eastwood International School Beirut

Mission.

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.

Mindful Meditation
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.

Coding Program
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.

IB Diploma Program

The International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) is a course of study designed to meet the educational requirements of students aged between 16 and 18 years. The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is a well-rounded, rigorous course of study, devised to develop students with skills for the 21st Century, who are informed global citizens. It aims to help students to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to participate actively and responsibly in a changing and increasingly interrelated world.

The programme reflects the IB commitment to internationalism through second language learning and through some literature requirements in English. The programme includes learning outside the classroom through the extended essay and the community, and to independent learning through research.

When our daughter started nursery we were welcomed by the most dedicated and caring teachers and community we have ever met. The Eastwood philosophy, values, love and ambition are incredibly inspiring and made our move from Denmark to Beirut all the more manageable as a family. It's truly a remarkable school that'd I'd recommend to everyone looking to instill a love of learning in their children.

I graduated from Eastwood in 1991 and I can say it was the best school in Beirut. I remember the amazing memories we had with our teachers and my classmates. Rare are the schools that take such good care of its students. We were loved and cared for, especially coming out of a 16 year war that practically destroyed the country. Our country was destroyed but our souls thrived at Eastwood. I love Eastwood and everything about this school. Thank you for the best years of my life.

When we moved back to Lebanon we thoroughly looked at many schools even some schools in London and the best decision my wife and I ever made was choosing Eastwood International for our 3 children back in 2015. This is my 2nd review and I can not thank enough the kind and warm staff for all the care, education and love they provide to every student. In a country that is so unstable our children grow up with unconditional love towards each other and their school. Thank you for everything. God bless and keep every child in our school. And wish you all the success in the world. Andre Dedeyan
