ABOUT ROCKFORD IQRA SCHOOL
Rockford Iqra School is a private school in Rockford, Illinois. It has students from grades Pre-K -12th grade.
It was established in 1998 to provide academic and Islamic education. The objective of this school is to offer college preparatory curriculum to students, who will be ready to step into this world with a strong Muslim identity, Insha’Allah (God Willing), armed with the knowledge of this world and with a moral character and principles espoused by Islam. Rockford Iqra’ School started as an elementary school, but has expanded to a high school, Alhamdulillah (by the grace of God). Our students have done well academically as shown in standardized tests and have a strong base of Islamic knowledge. We, at Iqra, believe in a small student to teacher ratio and plan on, Insha’Allah, maintaining this as the school grows. Rockford Iqra’ School is committed to providing children with quality education, with all the tools modern education has to offer, in an Islamic environment. The school is dedicated to setting an academic standard well above that of the local public and private schools. Iqra School is striving to uphold the religious and academic expectations of the community and has been particularly successful in academic competitions among other schools, community outreach, and extracurricular activities. Rockford Iqra School seeks to prepare students for the competitive world through excellence in academics and religious insight, and make them conscious of their responsibilities so they can reach their full potential.
MISSION : The mission of IQRA is to empower students with exceptional Islamic character and academics to thrive as honorable members in a global community.
VISION : IQRA is the premiere Academy for educational and character excellence.
