Middle School

 

ILM Middle School promises to explore and deliver new pursuits in teaching and learning. We do not believe in a cookie-cutter approach to teaching, as there is no 'One size fits all' curriculum. As a private school, we are blessed to have the flexibility to design our curriculum to meet our students' needs, but at the same time, we do meet and exceed the Georgia Standards. We cover all facets of academic learning from the core subjects, to science and social studies, and still concentrate upon Arabic, Qur'an, and Islamic Studies. We also understand the need for students to be engaged in physical education, as well as explore their artistic and creative talents.

Middle School focuses on preparing well-rounded students who not only excel in their academics but are also respectful contributing members of society. Implementation of the STEAM framework provides them opportunities to collaborate with the community, businesses, and individuals to find solutions to real-life problems. The students are provided exposure to various career paths through the Mentoring program and participate in many competitions and clubs to discover their interests and passions.
