Arabic and Islamic studies are two of the most important subjects taught at the International Academic School. Under the guidance of the Ministry of Education, our Arabic curriculum focuses on developing the four key language areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Rather than focus on rote learning, our students are engaged through various strategies such as developing higher order thinking skills, role playing, group work, and independent study projects in order to apply what they have learned to real life experiences.
Based on the guidance of the Ministry of Education, our Islamic Studies curriculum also benefits our Muslim student population by teaching the Holy Quran with a strong emphasis placed on understanding and proper recitation with tajweed, the biography of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), principles of faith, rulings related to worship, and manners.
The primary objective and benefit of Islamic Studies Curriculum in International Academic School is to create an atmosphere which nurtures students and responsible citizens that take Islam and the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as a guide for improving their moral character and lives.
