Student Life

Students come together to contribute to a family of different cultures and interests. Students begin their day with prayers and praise of Allah and then embark on a whole day of learning. Character development and leadership is implemented in activities and daily programs through our activities, culture days, sleepovers, competitions and more. Furthermore, through instruction and interaction we encourage students to follow their interests and cultivate their own educational journey using the resources and assistance available within the school and community.

At Al-Taqwa, we encourage students to get involved in athletics, clubs, competitions, and activism to create a well-rounded educational and memorable life experiences.


Al-Taqwa's students have won numerous awards and excelled in competitions. At Al-Taqwa we encourage students to compete against other students and schools to practice their skills and knowledge.
