"PREPARING OUR STUDENTS TO EXCEL AS MUSLIM ROLE MODELS AND EXEMPLARY CITIZENS IN TODAY'S DIVERSE SOCIETY."
The philosophy of the Islamic Education Institute of Texas, “IEIT” in establishing Darul Arqam school system is to impart Islamic spiritual training (“Tarbia”) along with the educational tools to achieve academic excellence.
The curriculum includes all core subjects, with all of the required directives of TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) as determined by Texas Education Agency. In addition to the regular academic subjects taught in public and private schools in America, Darul Arqam Schools’ curriculum includes Arabic, Quran, and Islamic Studies courses as separate independent subjects. We are committed to instilling in the students the Islamic values, habits, attitudes, ethical standards, patience, and tolerance that are the characteristics of a good Muslim.
With the help of Allah (SWT), the Mission Statement of Darul Arqam Schools is committed to the following principles:
Prepare our children to become Muslim role models, exemplary citizens in their communities, and to excel in their professional careers.
Inculcate in our children Islamic values, habits, attitudes, high moral and ethical standards, tolerance, and patience that are characteristics of a good Muslim.
Teach our children to read and understand the message of the Quran, and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and to apply these in every facet of their personal and professional lives.
