The Islamic School of Cambridge was established in September 1992. It opened its doors with 18 students and 2 teachers. Tehfeez (Memorization of Quran) was the main focus of the school for the first 5 years of its life and by 1999, 20 students completed the requirements of Tehfeez program and became Hafiz. The Tehfeez program included coaching in Math and English for grades 1 to 8.
Since September 1997, the school has been running a regular elementary school program following provincial curriculum. The Islamic Studies and Iqra (Reading of Quran or reciting of Quran) are part of the regular program.
ISOC has matured into an established elementary school, Pre-Kindergarten through the 6th Grade with a clear mission and strong philosophy. We are known as a warm, nurturing school community that provides support and challenge for our students. Teachers are trained and bring an extraordinary dedication to their work. Involved parents support the school in numerable ways, and the Board of Directors set ambitious goals for the school’s future.
