Al-Iman School is an Islamic school which is a non-public, non-profit, tax-exempt educational organization accredited by AdvancED. Al-Iman School is also accredited by the Council of Islamic Schools of North America, and is a member the Islamic Schools League of America. Al-Iman School has been in operation for 27 years, and is one of the original Islamic Schools serving the Triangle community.
The school is located on the shared campus of the Islamic Association of Raleigh, (IAR) in the heart of one of the area’s premier universities, North Carolina State University. The current enrollment is over 250 students in Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. The graduating eighth grade class moves on to attend locally competitive Public, Charter and Early College High School Programs.
The classroom facilities for Pre-K through eighth grade students are located in two separate buildings. The Pre-Kindergarten-third grade is housed in their own separate building, with much of the infrastructure catered around the needs for these grade levels. Behind the building is a newly renovated playground in which students enjoy recreational activities throughout the school day. Fourth thru eighth grade is located on the third floor of the masjid facility. In this facility you can find a complete science lab, mobile computer carts, a gym with full-court basketball, a well equipped library and a cafeteria.
In addition to these facilities the Al-Iman student body is very diverse. Students come from a variety of cultural backgrounds such as Asian-American, White (European and Middle Eastern) and African-American. The diversity of Al-Iman is also evident in their staff, many of which are from diverse backgrounds as well. This diversity, in both students and staff, allows for students to have a broad understanding of Islamic teachings.
Dear Al-Iman School Families, I want to take this opportunity to officially welcome new and returning families to Al-Iman School for the 2020-2021 school year. As we begin this school year we are committed to providing a nurturing and challenging environment for our students, and that their well-being and growth be the guiding factor in all our decisions. As educators it is our duty and responsibility to promote an environment in which our students can tap into their potential and be the best version of themselves. We are focused on our students being the best Muslims they can be, and being able to keep their identity at the forefront as they grow up in an ever changing and challenging world. This task, though it may seem daunting, is one that can be achieved through the partnership of home and school. Our dear families remain our strongest support system, asset and partner in this field and we look forward to working with you all in the upcoming school year to ensure the success of our students.
As many of you know, this school year will be unlike any other. The administration has been working diligently to ensure that we give our students a robust academic experience in and out of the classroom. As always, the safety and well-being of our staff and families is our guiding factor as we continue to move forward with the school year.

As always, if you have any questions/concerns please feel free to contact me at your convenience. We pray Allah (swt) blesses us with a safe, productive and effective school year.
