After establishing a firm operating foundation at its initial location in the City of Duhok, Knowledge Private School has successfully branched out into Zakho and Barzan and will now expand into Erbil. 

Modeled on the best of the American schools, Knowledge Private School has been granted a license from the Kurdistan Regional Government Ministry of Education.  Knowledge Private School will meet or exceed the Kurdistan Regional Government Ministry of Education requirements.

A Board of Directors provides oversight for Knowledge Private School. Each of the 10 members of the Board of Directors has a Doctoral Degree in his field of expertise and will be assisting the school in the area of expertise. 

To determine admission acceptability, potential students are tested on the basis of raw intelligence.  Regardless of a student’s previous academic exposure and accomplishment, raw intelligence will be necessary to properly develop the creative and critical thinking skills that Knowledge Private School emphasizes. 

The parents must also provide a copy of each child’s birth certificate, five color photos, a completed physical examination form, and an immunization card of other proof of vaccination history.

For the 2017 - 2018 School year, Knowledge Private School admits students in Kindergarten K1/K2 and Grades 1 through 12. 

The child must pay attention in class and complete the assigned homework every night. Parents must pay close attention to their children’s progress and ensure that the child actually correctly completes each assignment on his own. The child must never be allowed to submit less than his own best effort.

I will endeavor to provide opportunities and education for the students in Knowledge Private School as if they were my own children. I want to see each student from Knowledge Private School develop, benefit, and succeed. This level of achievement is no accident. The child must develop a strong work ethic, and be capable and willing. The school officials, the teachers, and the parents must cooperate toward the child’s ultimate benefit.

Through the timely and correct completion of school assignments, the child will develop a sense of responsibility, an understanding of the need for commitment, and a strong work ethic. The child will also learn about the need to adequately plan ahead and prepare so that assignments can be completed on time, without fail.  Each of these lessons teach valuable life’s experiences.

To help the child learn these lessons about life, the school officials, the teachers, and the parents must cooperate toward the child’s ultimate benefit. In any properly administered tough academic program, failures will happen. Learning how to avoid failure is another lesson in life. The school officials, teachers, and parents can help the student learn to avoid failure through emphasizing proper planning and preparation, and determination.

Along the path of learning how to succeed, the child will learn that procrastination is never acceptable. One valuable lesson: if you have a job to do or an assignment to complete, do it NOW and do it as right as you possible can first time.

Students will go on an annual field trip outside the country to further their cultural and scientific education. Previous trips to NASA, Washington State University, Disney World, and many other inspiring locations in the United states have proven to be helpful in motivating students to reach higher and expanding their horizons. Please check the link below for KPS field trip photos. http://en.calameo.com/read/00326997496e51f96422f

 Students will check-out books from the library weekly, take the books home to read, and return the books. Reading is an important part of education. Students develop enhanced brain activity, which results in increased critical thinking and creative thinking skills.

Students will also learn computer skills via computer classes in the computer lab. Exposure to computer will cause the students to develop an appreciation for one of the most important technologies of the day.
