A Historical Note
The story of the International School of Choueifat is a story of dedication, vision, and ambition. It is the story of a succession of individuals and their devotion to an institution.
Only a century ago most girls, in what is now modern Lebanon, were not able to read and write and educating them was frowned upon by society in general. In the early 1880s, Mr. Tanios Saad, a dynamic teacher, met Louisa Procter, an outspoken Irish lady. When they met, she was working with the village women in the Choueifat area teaching them how to look after their children.
