The ISM Elementary School mission is to have an educational institution that teaches and nurtures the child – Islamically, intellectually, emotionally and physically. Furthermore, we strive to prepare our students to be future leaders of the world.
All of our students work vigorously towards becoming good Muslim role models and high academic achievers. An important part of student life at ISM is daily prayer and real-life applications of our Islamic faith. The focus of the ISM`s Islamic Studies curriculum is to familiarize the students with the Islamic beliefs and practices, and to enhance their understanding of the practical dimension of their faith. The approach we use is designed to instill the love of Allah SWT and implementation of the Prophet Muhammad’s life in all aspects of our students` daily life. To accomplish this, students get daily instruction in three basic areas – Islamic Studies, Qur’anic Studies and Arabic Language. The Islamic studies and the Quranic studies are taught by our certified Alimas who have completed 6 years of Alima program. They are the philosophers, friends, and a spiritual guides to our students. The Islamic Studies curriculum is built around a series of value-based themes, and incorporates age-appropriate learning materials and activities. They also learn about the lives of other prophets and analyze their stories for significant morals and respect positive aspects of other faiths
All the ISM students are treated with empathy, care, and compassion. At ISM, we challenge each student to achieve their dreams and to become a passionate learner who is prepared to adapt and contribute positively in a rapidly changing world. We aspire to provide our students with enriched experiences of competing with the students of other Islamic and public schools. Our students are constantly given opportunities to practice and enhance leadership skills.
Our success is manifested by our following achievements : winner of Olive Grove Spelling Bee competition, 100% EQAO testing results. Furthermore, our students participate and continue to excel in annual events such as the food drives, science fair, speech competitions, and fund raising events. The thinking and inquiry skills of our students are enhanced by meaningful and educational trips . We are proud to serve our Muslim community at ISM. Together, we grow the learning tree.
