Courses

Core Subjects

Junior students are taught their core subjects from the Government of Ontario Ministry of Education guidelines catered to our school.  This represents courses in Language, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social Studies, Health and Physical Education and Visual Arts. 

Languages

French: French starts in Grade 4.

Arabic: In order to maintain the Islamic religion and culture, Arabic is taught to students as its own course.  The Arabic program is specialized catering to the diverse needs of the students. Students are appropriately placed in either a "General" Arabic course stream or an "Advanced" course stream within each grade based on their proficiency and demonstration of course requirements.
