Ruby satisfies these criteria in spades.  No reason you won't like it.

Although (it seems) most Ruby programmers are already decent
programmers before they use Ruby, the amount of built-in functionality
(e.g. methods in Array, String, Enumerable, Hash, File, ...) means
that novice programmers can get stuff done right away.
