Middle School

Sixth through Eighth Grade: The 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 create 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 standard aligned. Please see the link below that will show the standards for each grade level.

      In addition to the textbooks, students have access to digital versions of all textbooks through the online eLearning component of my HRW. eLearning on myHRW connects the students to online editions and a variety of eLearning resources that allow for homework and extension activities to be completed online.
