Islamic Studies Department


A strong foundation in Islamic Studies is at the heart of Pleasant View School’s mission. Our approach to the teaching of Islamic Studies is based on the belief that students should come to love Islam, learn Islam and live Islam.

  • In the pre-Kindergarten and lower elementary grades, students learn what it means to fully live a practicing Islamic lifestyle and the manner of teaching is done in a way that aims at ensuring that they will want to live such a lifestyle.
  • In the upper elementary grades, students come to have an in depth understanding of the Seerah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as well as the history of the other Prophets (peace be upon all of them) and the Companions and early generations of Muslims in a way that introduces them as role models to emulate.
  • In the Middle School, the students are taught more detailed rules of Hadith, Fiqh, and Aqeedah.
  • The High School program is aimed at having students come to understand Islam as a mission that guides their lives and provides them with important responsibilities toward their families, communities and society at large.
