Increasingly, business leaders, educators, industry experts, and others are rallying around the importance of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in education. This is a key issue for K-12 education in the United States. Our Islamic School emphasizes STEM from the very start of the education process.


In order to be competitive in the future, children will need to have a strong background in STEM-education. This is important to meet the demands of business in an increasingly complex and technology-driven economy. Children at birth are natural scientists, engineers, and problem-solvers. They consider the world around them and try to make sense of it, the best way they know how: touching, tasting, building, dismantling, creating, discovering, and exploring. For kids, this isn’t education. It is fun.


Our program produces technologically-skilled and competitive students capable of critical thinking and innovation. Our students also carry on their education with a deep understanding of Islam’s position as a religion of knowledge and morals.


The school curriculum is aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS). Our curriculum is furthered developed and reviewed by our educators, administrators and college professors. The curriculum standards that we adopt are clear and concise to ensure that parents, teachers, and students have a clear understanding of the expectations in reading, writing, speaking and listening, language and mathematics in school. The standards require a practical, real-life application of knowledge that prepares students for success in college, work and life. 

The primary goal of our academic standards and any programs or initiatives we implement at Academy of Greatness and Excellence, an accredited Islamic School,  is to create a 21st century learning environment that engages students, fosters achievements, and cultivates the skills needed to compete, connect, and collaborate in a global society.
