Welcome to My Iman Montessori!
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 (Montessori) 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.

Parent Teacher Conferences:
Current parents should watch for details on the upcoming Spring Parent/Teacher Conferences. Conferences will be held beginning on Monday, April 28th and will continue through Wednesday, April 30th. Please note that Wednesday, April 30th is also an early dismissal. MIM teachers and staff highly recommend parents to honor their scheduled conference times and to avoid rescheduling. We do understand, however, that scheduling conflicts are inevitable at times. In the event that you find you are unable to conference at the time scheduled for you, please contact the office or your child's teacher at the earliest possible time in order to reschedule. As we approach conferences, schedules will be posted and emailed, at least two weeks ahead of time to allow planning. Stay tuned for more information.
As the seasons change, please remember to send your child to school with appropriate outdoor clothing. April can often bring plenty of rain and still be a bit chilly, so we recommend the following items for students to have at school, either in their cubbies or backpacks: raincoat/spring jacket, rainboots/water resistant shoes, extra pair of socks, sweater, hat and light gloves.
Public Fundraising Campaign!
In April, MIM launched a public fundraising campaign to reach our fundraising goal for this year! We greatly appreciate any support we can get, so please visit the link below to make a donation, or pass it along to family and friends - or both! Jazakom Allahu Khair!
