Middle School

Sixth through Eighth Grade: Our middle school curriculum is standard aligned and student-centered. Our team of teachers is focused and driven to ensure that class content is rigorous, standards-aligned and differentiated to student’s levels.  Islam is the foundation of all classes.  Our teaching method and approach creates no separation between Religion and class content, blending the Sunnah and Islamic Studies into each subject. Our goal is to shape and guide the students both academically and religiously thus, creating students that have a solid foundation in Islam and strong academic skills.  Our students are being prepared to enter their high school and future college endeavors.

All of our classes are standardly aligned please see the link below that will show the standards for each grade level.
