The culture of learning helps foster critical thinking as much as it determines our vantage point and outlook towards the world we inhabit. Amongst the centres of learning, a high school is of paramount importance: Its curriculum and work culture enables us to develop our core competencies and evolve our ethical frameworkwhich becomes an indispensable part of our identity. The school weconceive looks beyond apparent, and embraces a robust approach that allows students to accept and consciously respond to myriad challenges, provides an environment that enhances their skillset and knowledge production abilities and in the process become active contributors to make this world a better place to live. Following the spirit of this broad base education model, Idarah Falahu Darien (a non-profit registered society), envisions a world class school that is in sync with its basic idea as well, which includes :

  • commitment towards teaching thought and harnessing thought process
  • harboring social values that uplift community standards through active contribution
  • enhancing choice-based schooling, without clouding critical judgement by imposition approach
  • adapting and developing social technologies to respond to contemporary challenges
  • channelizing curiosity of students by creating a learning culture which facilitates their intellectual endeavors.


ASE as an academic institution espouses to accomplish its objectives through 3 E’s – important change-drivers – i.e. “Education, Ethics, and Excellence”.


ASE as a centre of learning will equip students with critical thinking apart from the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, and habits. ASE will enable students to reflect on the profundity of our primordial nature, meditate on the fate of society, question the edifice of concepts and ideas with a critical outlook yet remaining firm in critical elements of self-realization and self-actualization. ASE deems this sublime blend of knowledge-based self-realization as the ultimate aim of education and social evolution.


At ASE, we believe, ethics is an inseparable part of human beings and their evolution. Education is the only constant which makes us grow ethically. Ethics which don’t deprive us of the taste of faith and submission, which does not make of us a harmless ascetic while en route to piety. Ethics which enriches our characters, whereby we remain actively committed to the path of knowledge yet not staining our hands with immorality. ASE shall promote ethics and basic human values as a culture and shall treat them as a norm, the non-adherence of which shall construe as abnormality and immorality.


ASE believes that excellence in education is a hallmark of an enculturated society. Excellence not only in terms of producing highly employable students, important though that is, to produce men of commitment whose faith does not paralyze their power of thought and profession does not make them inattentive to the fate of mankind. At ASE, we take a holistic view of excellence and hence believe in the noble use of knowledge and skills, beyond individual Professional commitments.
