faq

Al-Ameen is a student-centred faith-based private school for children from JK through Grade 8 located in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.

Do you admit students mid-year?

Yes, we do admit students mid school year if there are spots available in your child’s grade.

Can I apply for a different grade level other than the one determined by birth year?

No, we admit students based on year of birth only. Please click here to access a table that shows the grade your child can attend based on their year of birth.

Can I send supplementary documents beyond the required report cards?

We understand that sometimes report cards don’t tell the whole story. Once you’ve submitted your application and the required documents, please contact the admission representative to discuss submitting any additional documents.

What is the dress code for students?

Al-Ameen has a uniform policy that includes a gym uniform and a formal uniform. Please review the attached Uniform Guidelines, Uniform Policy, and Uniform Price List to familiarize yourself with the uniform expectations and where to purchase the uniforms.

What additional requirements are there for international families?

There are no additional application requirements for international students. Visit the Canadian government’s Study In Canada information site to determine whether or not your child will require a student visa.

Canadian Immigration Status
Families who are permanent residents and refugee claimants may register directly at the school. Children without immigration status are welcome in our schools and information will not be shared with immigration authorities.

What if my child has special education needs?
Depending on the specifics of the special need, we may or may not be able to support the student. Due to limited resources, our school does not have access to the expertise required for most special needs students. However, if the special need is such that it can be easily accommodated by our school and staff, then we may make exceptions.

If your child does have a special need, please request a meeting with the Principal. At this meeting, you will be able to share any needs, relevant documentation, and discuss supports that are available in the school for your child. By working together, we can determine the supports and resources your child will need and whether Al-Ameen will be a good fit for him/her or not.

How can I get involved in my child’s education?
There are many ways you can actively participate in your child’s education and help your child be successful in school.

  • Talk to your child about school every day.
  • Read to your child.
  • Praise your child’s work to help build confidence.
  • Note your child’s strengths and areas they may need to improve. Share this information with the teacher.
  • Attend parent-teacher conferences.
  • Become involved in school activities and the school council
  • Support the classroom program by volunteering.

What before- and after-school programs are available?

We currently do not have a before school program. Our school offers an after school Quran program from 3:30 to 4:30. This program is taught by teachers that have certification in taweed. It is designed to support students in their area of growth, whether it’s to prepare for the next day’s lesson, memorize more surahs, or help rectify areas of identified weaknesses.

How will I know how my child is doing at school?

We have a parent portal which allows parents to access their child’s progress at their own leisure online. Additionally, we have three reporting periods in which report cards are sent home and for two of them are followed by parent-teacher conferences. Teachers also reach out to parents whenever they have any concerns and parents are also welcome to communicate with their child’s teacher to inquire about his/her progress throughout the school year.
