Introduction about Ibrahimieh College
This huge college and such a lofty, beautiful building have not sprung into existence as an upswing. They have actually been the outcome of burning the midnight oil , deep thinking and strenuous efforts ceaselessly exerted to bring them into existence.
The thinking and preparations exerted on my part have not only been limited to seeing the college building installed,
But I have also deemed it essential that Ibrahimieh College with its modern building should be clad in a new attractive apparel . Ibrahimieh, according to my vision, should adopt the most up-to-date methods of instruction so as to give its students a solid scientific and educational basis to put them on the right track till the end of the secondary stage. Therefore, its modern building has been provided with all the facilities that enhance the achievement of that target such as modern science and computer laboratories, a large general library, a special children’s library, an auditorium, as well as many halls and playgrounds for all kinds of school activities. As for languages, Ibrahimieh has introduced the teaching of French in the lower grades of the college in addition to teaching Arabic , the students’ mother tongue, and English has been enabling the College students to achieve a good mastery of two foreign languages besides their mother tongue by the time they reach higher grades. To make its students keep abreast with modern developments and to provide them with access to the powerful tool of information technology as a further source of acquiring knowledge, the College administration has also introduced computer instruction to its school syllabus as from the third grade up to the twelfth grade. To achieve this, it has set up two modern computer laboratories each of which containing 25 computers connected with the internet.
To complement the educational role of Ibrahimieh College and to provide Palestinian students with more opportunities in getting higher education, we in 1983 decided to inaugurate a community college under the name of Ibrahimieh Community College whose successful students receive upon graduation the Palestinian Community College Diploma.
"Such ideas and innovations have been materialized with the sole purpose of making Ibrahimieh College with all its sections an ideal one in quality of instructioni its students are provided with, the activities they practice and the wide cultural knowledge they acquire during their years of study at it. Fortunately, the College has made remarkable progress in this respect and we are proud to say that Ibrahimieh College today enjoys a very good reputation among all academic institutions in Jerusalem.
At the end, I earnestly appeal to God to bestow His blessings on this college and to grant it and all its students the incessant success they aspire to, amen.
