Welcome to the Johannesburg Muslim School

The Johannesburg Muslim School is an Independent School registered with the Gauteng Department of Education. With the Grace of Almighty Allah SWT, plans for a Muslim School in the Johannesburg area were conceived during 1989. Alhamdu-lillah, the Johannesburg Muslim School had its humble beginning in January 1990.

Our objective is to impart to learners the requisite Secular and Islamic knowledge, in the appropriate balance, of a standard that it will readily be recognized by any educational or employment establishment. In our endeavour to achieve this objective, we are resolved in stressing on quality in every respect.

The curriculum is based on an integrated system in order to provide a well balanced programme. The Secular curriculum is based on that of the Gauteng Department of Education. The daily timetable of subjects is not divided into rigid and inflexible compartments, but is structured to allow for the projection of an integrated system of education. The education of our children is child-centred, emphasising the uniqueness of each individual.

We believe that all children have special abilities and each child is unique. It is our duty to nurture these abilities. As such, our core ideology is that EVERY CHILD IS IMPORTANT. Our teaching methods are designed to stimulate, motivate and encourage each child to achieve to his or her full potential, taking into account each child’s individual talents and needs. We follow the calendar as prescribed by the Gauteng Department of Education and take cognisance of important events within the Islamic calendar and adjust the school programme accordingly.

We invite you to visit our School and assure you that you are always welcome.
