Welcome to My Iman Montessori & Academy!
Choosing a school is an important decision for your entire family; education is a passport to great opportunities. Since My Iman Montessori's inception in 2009, our aim has been to provide premium education through both the Traditional and Montessori teaching methods. Among the key principles in shaping academic and personal excellence of a child is, undoubtedly, constructing an environment in which the child feels actively and joyfully engaged in his/her own learning. Our Preschool/Kindergarten (a combination of Montessori and more traditional philosophies) and Lower Elementary (Grades 1 & 2, Traditional Elementary) allow our students to ignite their imaginations, sharpen their vital capacities, and broaden consciences. As Eastern Iowa's first full-time Islamic school, these ideas are fused with a moral Islamic atmosphere, yielding a safe, nurturing and creative environment for our students, staff, and MIM families. Contact us to arrange a tour today!
My Iman Montessori provides the foundation to foster the inherent love of learning by encouraging independence, responsibility, self-respect, and intellectual growth for academic and personal excellence.
