Education For All

Al- Fayha' School in Al-Salihia Street
Since 1967 all Syrian schools, colleges, and universities have been under close government supervision. The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Higher Education are primarily responsible for all aspects of administration, including curricula development. Schooling is divided into 9 years of compulsory basic education, and 3 years of upper secondary education. General secondary education offers academic courses and prepares students for university entrance; the last 2 years of this stage are divided into literary and scientific streams. Vocational secondary training offers courses in industry, agriculture, commerce, and primary school-teacher training. In 2000, the government announced permission for the establishment of private schools and universities in Syria. As a result, businesses rushed to set-up schools and training programs. Many international and private schools has been opened Since then.
Based on many resourses


  • The word (Serendipity) is often, true in a notion ,but a rare probability like your photo posted half an hour ago is the truth, but how true it is for you, by a sheer accident , to post the warmth of my Grand Mother!!! a photo in “Al-Salihiya “at the corner of “Arnous” opposite to the old mosque of ‘”Deck-AL,Bab” to be nothing but a true serendipity, this old house that turned into a Al-Fayha school . For you to photograph is nothing but my grand mothers home,you present me with My Grand Mothers home ,where she and her lovely memories lived ,along with a child ,who adores her.
    Serendipity is a lovely word for love and memories. Thank you for posting my memories.
