Middle School

We prepare to be thoughtful, social, and civic-minded citizens through a holistic education.

The middle school program builds upon the foundation set in early grades. Students receive high quality academic instruction that will prepare them for the challenges of high school and to make them college-ready.

Daily Activity

Middle school students participate in the morning assembly to emotionally and spiritually prepare for the school day. Since the assembly brings together the entire school, the older students are able to set an example in their participation for the younger grades.

Curriculum

In addition to English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Geography, students learn advanced concepts in Islamic Studies. The hope is that they will be able to competently engage with students of other faiths. Additionally, students continue to review and memorize meritorious chapters of the Quran (Surah Mulk, Rahman, etc.) with the meaning and translation.

Enrichment Activities

Middle school is a time when young adults develop their social and spiritual practices, and we aim to create well-rounded contributors of the Muslim and Knoxville communities. With enrichment and after school opportunities, middle school students receive a holistic education to make them thoughtful, social, and civic-minded citizens.

Islamic and Arabic Studies

The Arabic Studies program in middle school emphasizes grammar and vocabulary. Middle school students attend daily congregational Dhuhr prayers as well as the Friday sermon and prayer service.
