Our Teachers

Here, at Al-Falah Islamic School, we are proud of our high staff retention with one of the lowest teacher turnover rates among Islamic schools in the Greater Toronto Area! Some of our staff members have been serving the school since its inception and are celebrating more than 19 years of success.

Five Ways Al-Falah Prepares Teachers For Success:

  • Teachers are evaluated yearly by a retired Principal from the Toronto District School Board and our school Principal.

  • Teachers undergo mandatory professional development throughout the year as they attend workshops and courses organized by educational consultants and organizations.

  • Teachers actively participate in a Professional Learning Community to enhance their classroom programs, for example with a focus on Literacy.

  • Our staff is TRIBES certified which allows them to create a collaborative community.

  • Our low teacher turnover means consistency in education and focus on the development of our children. Al Falah’s emphasis on holistic Islamic education and professional development has attracted many brilliant educators and administrators since its development.
