Rania Maayeh

Head of School, Ramallah Friends School

Rania is no stranger to Ramallah Friends School. She is a former student, teacher, and parent of three alumni. Rania currently works for World Vision, as the Education Lead for Jerusalem, West Bank, and Gaza. She has also served as an English instructor and school principal.   She is an education specialist with over twenty years of experience across the fields of higher, secondary, and primary education, in Palestine, Jordan, and the United States.

As a Palestinian Christian, Rania considers the RFS community to be the place where her spiritual journey and formation began. She considers the Friends’ testimonies to be a vital aspect of Ramallah Friends School’s DNA, integral to propelling students toward academic achievement and spiritual transformation. “This transformation,” she notes, “can only be understood as a reflection of God’s light, which I see as constantly pushing us to strive for a more loving and whole world.” She adds, Rania adds: "My life and career have taught me to accomplish great things with limited resources, and to offer deep and sincere energy to those I work with and serve. It is a true honor to serve the School’s mission and help hone students for God and peace, as etched in Arabic on the limestone of the Lower Campus’ Main Building. As Head of School, my goal is I to further integrate Quaker practice into decision making, implement sustainable growth strategies, and support and realize RFS’s tremendous energy and potential to the future generations of Palestinian leaders."
