Elementary and Middle school

Manarah’s academic program is grounded in Islamic context. A focus on learning, practicing and applying Islamic values along with developing academic skills that exceed what is required by the Pennsylvania core standards, is the trademark of our program.

Regular student’s work include quizzes, tests, assignments, projects (group or individual), presentations, etc.

The implementation of the mentioned methods will develop lifelong skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and utilization of abstract ideas that will help Manarah students become responsible and contributing members of the community and society.
