Our mixed-age elementary classrooms are designed to optimize teaching and learning. Children work on meaningful projects, with their teachers and peers, to explore their world while sharpening academics and critical thinking. During investigations, Islamic living and values are explored and applied to learning new concepts and improving skills. While working in small groups, as a class, and individually, each student's learning plan is customized so s/he works at his/her own pace. We also emphasize social and emotional learning in the form of family and Islamic values, role modeling, character development, student advocacy, and service learning.
Learning objectives for students six to 11 years old
Developing intrapersonal abilities including: recognizing one's strengths and weaknesses, improving one's ability to regulate one's emotions by understanding one's internal feelings.
