For years, independent Islamic schools have maintained their best performances, making headlines here and there for being successful, highly-achieving, and inspiring educational institutes.

Joining the honor list, a Southern Ontario Islamic school has ranked top in Fraser Institute report.

Ajax’s Islamic Foundation School (IFS) came first in the
Durham region in Southern Ontario in English and math.

The annual Fraser Institute Elementary School Report Card, based on data from annual province-wide tests in reading, writing, and math administered by the EQAO, rated the IFS 10 out of 10.

“We are of the opinion that any kind of testing can polish the academic skills of our students and use EQAO as part of that,” said IFS principal Viquar Ahmed, Toronto Sun reported.

“We do other things, such as enter speech competitions and
spelling bees. We don’t want to live in a bubble, we want to have a good
barometer so we can gauge our own standards.”

The private, not-for-profit school has been operating for
five years. It has 182 students with an average classroom size between 15 to 18
students.

“We are blessed to have less students per class as it’s
easier to concentrate on each child,” Ahmed said.
