Principal's Letter

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope it conveys to you who we are and how school life is at OBK.

Welcome to the official website of Al Makassed Omar Bin Al Khattab College (OBK). It is my honor and great pleasure to introduce OBK and share our educational beliefs with you. We are confident that you will find the information on this website useful, and that you will learn more about what makes OBK a special place.

OBK is a branch of Al Makassed Philanthropic Islamic Association, established in 1931 and accredited the International School Award (ISA) recently. It is a K-12 school that always strives to meet international standards of performance in education.

Our main target is to reinforce Makassed morals: believing in Almighty God and following the Islamic beliefs and rituals.

We believe that academic success is important, yet it is not enough for our students to help them face the challenges of the real world. Therefore, our highly professional staff is dedicated to support and teach them the most essential life skills of the 21st century to face those challenges and confront the rapidly-evolving world around us. We strive to offer a variety of rich and meaningful learning experiences that inspire innovative thinkers and confident learners.

At OBK, we also seek to prepare our students to become proficient competitors in Sciences, Mathematics, and language arts by implementing STEM education in our curriculum to enable them to analyze real-life problems and solve them efficiently, thus develop their logical, analytical and technological skills.

Moreover, we endeavor to provide a safe, caring, and challenging learning environment where students are engaged to achieve success and work towards realizing their individual potentials.

OBK believes in the importance of professional development to increase capabilities of staff and improve professional knowledge, competence, skill, and effectiveness. Hereby we are proud to announce that we have a number of Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts (MIEE) and Microsoft Certified Educators (MCE) among OBK staff. Our main plan is to continue working on these programs to increase the number of expert staff. We are also proud of our students and staff’s accomplishments in different domains locally and globally, as well.

Finally, we send our best wishes of success to our unique OBK family. May God bless you all.
