Florida Islamic School was established in 2015 and registered with the Department of Education as an Independent School.
The school was founded to satisfy the growing needs of the expanding community of Florida and its surroundings.
From the initial research of the area, data revealed that a large number of learners faced the challenge of not being able to attend Madressah or acquire basic Islamic knowledge due to various reasons. Of which the lack of transport was a major contributor. This then further inspired the establishment of our school, which would cater to the needs of the community by providing Islamic and Secular Education simultaneously.
As we are in our initial years of operation we have overcome a lot of difficulties, but the road ahead to reach our vision is still long.
Combining Secular and Islamic School on the West Rand
Discipline is the backbone of any institution which is why ours is in accordance with the Islamic code.
Knowledge enlightens learners and regulates their practices. It is through Tarbiyah (character grooming) that they become exemplary to the world.
We Integrate and implement the South African Curriculum, focusing on high quality teaching to improve learner achievement.
Using differentiated instructions in teaching and learning, we provide a variety of platforms for a learning environment that is safe, caring and inclusive.
Once you accomplish something, there has to be renewed ambition, to push yourself further.
Physical education is an integral part of the school curriculum.
In the pre-primary and primary classes, emphasis is on the development of gross motor skills, physical stamina, flexibility and the development of team play.
