General Daily Schedule

At each grade level, these subject areas are covered

1.                Quran

2.                Seerah/Islamic Social Studies


Curriculum Specifics

For children in 1st Grade, teachers make extensive use of hands-on activities, story-telling and play-based activities.

For higher grades, more emphasis is placed on Teachings/Meaning of Quran (as opposed to recitation) and general Islamic History (in addition to the Seera of the Prophet -SAW). Advanced subjects -including Fiqh, Science of Hadith and Islamic Akhlaq/Adab -are introduced at the Middle/High School level. Though the advanced classes use the same structured approach as the rest of school, they tend to be more discussion-oriented and deal with current events and topics of general interest to the older students.

Following is a list of activities that the Youth Group can organize and implement. Teachers are highly encouraged to incorporate some of these activities into their curriculum.

1.                Publishing school’s monthly newsletter

2.                Visit to Food Banks, Children’s hospital, Nursing/Senior Home (once a year)

3.                Arrange a fundraiser
