WES has more than a three-decade history. The main goal of the school is to provide an Islamic education in a positive environment to public school students enabling them to be well-rounded, strong contributors and role models as Muslims in our American society.

The school is in session from mid-September to mid-June. During the summer, a three to four week day camp may be offered. The school is usually closed, for at least one weekend, during the two Eid holidays. Current enrollment is about 185 children between the ages of 4 and 15 years old. The majority of children are 7 to 10 years old, tuition is $150.00 each semester per student ($300 per student for the academic year), plus one-time $15.00 registration fee.  We established a good curriculum and offer the students helpful textbooks and workbooks, and we choose the best teachers for the job. Please bring 2 separate checks for tuition and books. All checks should be payable to “ICCD Weekend School”.
