ELM Schools

The Elm School was established in Hargeisa, April 2007. ELM strives to ensure that the children acquire a sense of personal values based on Islamic principles, curiosity about the world around them and to foster an enthusiasm for learning in life.

The atmosphere of our school is friendly and relaxed whilst maintaining a commitment to high achievement for all students. Students appreciate the value hard work, discipline and respect for others. ELM is not only a school but a community, with a strong ‘family’ feel.

Our mission is to assist students in becoming independent and creative thinkers with a positive approach to learning; to guarantee an equal opportunity to succeed; to foster a global perspective within an international and multicultural environment; to promote tolerance, understanding, care and responsibility for each other and the wider community.

Our motto is Passion for Knowledge. We believe that the ELM experience will prepare students for the complex world that lies ahead of them. I hope that you will take the time to explore our lovely school, and that you will find the time and opportunity to visit us in the near future.
