We believe that Islamic studies is not just an academic subject, it's a way of living. At Iqra Montessori Academy, we will focus on building the character of our students according to Quran and sunnah. Teachers will incorporate Islam in daily routine and will ensure that the children will leave the classroom with a solid, authentic understanding of Islam.
