The secondary school specialises in Humanities and has already formed international links supported by its affiliation with UNESCO. The school is involved in other projects such as an International Human Rights campaign. The school has won a number of national and international awards including an International School Award. The school also encourages and supports the girls’ creativity through extra-curricular activities.

 Languages taught at the school are Arabic, English and French. The project will be supported in Hajjah Rashda al Masri School by Asma Maqbool (Head teacher), Gada Abu Egdabe (English teacher) and Amal Dweikat (Information Technology teacher).

 The reason for the school’s interest in the multilingual digital storytelling project is to develop students’ skills in English as a foreign language considering the importance of English in the world today. The project will also improve their ability in storytelling and empower and encourage the girls to become more confident in expressing themselves in English. Moreover, the school understands the need for cultural exchange and hopes to refine and enhance the talents of students across the curriculum.
