Founder's Foreword


Let me take this opportunity to greet you all, Salaam Alaikum! Welcome to our school, the Capital Private School which is a monolingual, and bilingual school. It was established in the year 1984. We started first in a rented villa and steadily grew over the years and established the current permanent campus in the year 1997. The school at present has a capacity to host 400 students and we are planning to enhance capacity with additional infrastructure in the years ahead.

50 years ago when I was a student there was only one school in the Dhofar region for primary education. Thanks to the great vision of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said, today Oman has over 1000 schools and the numbers are increasing and throw open educational opportunities to every child in Oman.

To pursue general and secondary education 5 decades ago I had to travel by Camel, and Boat to reach Muscat and then proceed to Kuwait, and thereafter to Egypt. Return trip to Salalah included air travel via Bahrain and Yemen and a long and tiring journey by road across the desert. For higher education I went to Eastern Europe, and Hungary. On my return to Oman, I retired from services voluntarily as an Archaeologist. It is with a desire to contribute to His Majesty's vision for the future, and as an act of social responsibility that my family setup the Capital Private School.

Our focus is on ensuring the type of learning that will make our students responsible citizens capable of innovatively contributing to the progress of Oman and the benefit of humanity in general. We do not discriminate or discourage students on the basis of their background, and learning ability. Our goal is to make our students achieve capabilities that match their maximum potential. To us, no student is a failure if mentored and taught in the right way: that is our belief and endeavor. Thus we are marching towards the achievement of "Inspiring Education for Innovative Actions!"

Dear Parents, your child is welcome to join our school, and students come to us and we'll put you on the road to success and guide you along the way.

Principal's Foreword


​Dear Capital Private School Families,


Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!  I am thrilled to welcome you back to school. We are excited to work effectively with you to ensure the success and well-being of all of our students.


Our priorities for reopening remain centered on two critical concepts:

  • Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our school community. 

  • Upholding our mission to educate the hearts and minds of our students. 


We have been working hard to plan for a safe opening of school and to implement best practices to mitigate the risks associated with Covid-19. Our classrooms have been modified to increase social distancing, signage has been installed throughout the building to guide students, and proper sanitization of classrooms every day before and after school hours, and our schedule has been modified to allow for mask breaks, hand washing, etc. Also, we have sent Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), to facilitate the reopening of our school. 


Our students are kind, compassionate, and inquisitive. Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe. Our Capital Private School, Vision of “Inspiring Education For Innovative Actions” will continue to guide Our Mission; Inspiring, Innovative, and Transformative education to ensure holistic development value orientation, and success in human endeavor through active learner involvement, quality student experience, and constructive engagement with local, regional, and global learning communities. Whether we are learning in person or remotely at home, our goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning.


Partnering with families will be crucial this year as we face many obstacles due to the global pandemic.  We appreciate your support as you work with students at home to practice safety protocols such as wearing a mask and washing hands. We encourage families to stay connected on the school website for important updates and information regarding our reopening plans. 


We value our partnership with families as we navigate these challenging times together. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with questions or concerns. Stay safe!

Thank you for your continued cooperation, patience, and support.


Ms. Kousar Jahan
