Classes

 

 

The Muslim Center Junior High School follows a curriculum in line with the guidelines of New York State Board of Education. Our students learn all aspects of standard educational requirements, including physical education, and have the option of studying various electives such as technology and art. In addition, our students receive instructions in beliefs and practices of Islam, as well as learning the Arabic language. Our goal is to offer our students a competitive curriculum while adhering to the highest possible Islamic and academic standards.
At the same time, we encourage our students to discover their potentials via use of their talents; an initiative which includes spelling bees, Quran and speech competitions, math olympiads, science and book fairs, school plays and art exhibitions.
