ELEMENTARY

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 has a curriculum based on the Common Core State Standards Initiative. It is a state-led effort that established a single set of clear educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in English language arts and mathematics that the school has adopted. The standards 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.

 

Common Core is a real-world approach to learning and teaching. Developed by education experts from 45 states, these K-12 learning standards go deeper into key concepts in math and English language arts. The standards require a practical, real-life application of knowledge that prepares students for success in college, work and life. The standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators, and experts, to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare our children for college and the workforce. The standards are informed by the highest, most effective models from states across the country The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.

 

The primary goal of these initiatives 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.
