CURRICULUM

Middle School

Literature

 

In Literature classes, students study a wide range of fiction, nonfiction, classical and contemporary works, and then apply an array of strategies to comprehend, interpret and evaluate each text.

Writing

The Writing curriculum teaches language structure, conventions and grammar in order to create and critique writings. Students conduct research on issues/topics and synthesize data from a variety of sources to communicate their ideas and findings through the written word.

Math

Middle school offers advanced math which is a challenging yet balanced curriculum that stretches each student’s ability to think critically and be creative and resourceful.  Starting with Pre-Algebra in 7th grade, all our 8th graders take Algebra 1.

Religion

Our Religious curriculum focuses on the emotional, spiritual, and internal nurturing and growth of students through program offerings in Islamic studies, Quranic Arabic, Memorization of the Quran, and Recitation and Fluency of the Quran.

Hifz-ul Quran (Quran Memorization) is at the heart of our religious program.  

Integration of religious perspectives with academic subjects is done to help students acquire a well-balanced approach to life and make connections independently between the two.  

Enrichment Classes

Enrichment classes, such as computer, Library, and physical education, are an integral part of fostering students’ individual talents, as well as encouraging creativity and developing skills to lead a healthy, balanced life.

TESTIMONIALS

What Parents Say

Alhumdulillah, Our three daughters are students at Goodtree Academy in grades sixth, fourth and first.

They have been enrolled since November 2015. When we were exploring all Islamic schools in the DFW area, Goodtree Academy stood out for a number of reasons. By far the biggest attraction was the focus and dedication spent on Hifz as well as Arabic.

Almost 2 1/2 years into it, we feel very confident that we made the right decision. We feel there is a balanced approach to secular and non-secular education.

Adeel and Sadaf Haq

Parent

This project is not just about educating that small select group of students but about making the next wave of leadership in our communities.

Our future communities will need strong leaders who have come up from amongst them, & who have been educated properly, and been given the strong scholarship that we have present in our ummah.
We need to relay it to them in a system where they can be educated and nourished.
