Welcome to Ottawa Islamic School

The mission (goals) of the Ottawa Islamic School, henceforth frequently referred to as the OIS throughout this document, is to provide the students with excellent academic skills, while instilling a sound knowledge of the Islamic faith. The school fosters in them the characteristics that will enable them to acquire the necessary tools that will better prepare them to face future life challenges as self-confident, strong and caring Muslim Canadian citizens. To attain these objectives, the school follows the guidelines for the expectations and requirements of the Ontario Ministry of Education. In addition the school also offers students courses in the Arabic language and Islamic Studies. With this philosophy of academic excellence coupled with religious studies, the school hopes to culture, motivate, and inspire the students towards becoming productive, educated, and caring citizens.
