Academics - Extracurricular Activities
Accelerated Reading Program
Readers are Leaders! We recognize that reading comprehension is the most critical skill required for students to excel and achieve their fullest potential. We also believe that by making reading exciting and fun, our students will enjoy the process and become life-long learners.
The Accelerated Reading Program provides a personalized approach to create a sense of excitement when students learn and advance in their reading comprehension skills and abilities. We utilize web-based software that allow students to easily track their progress, provide feedback, and practice with enjoyment.
The annual Science Fair is an opportunity for Iman Academy students to apply and demonstrate their scientific knowledge in a fun and competitive environment. Our students compete at the school level and the winners are then entered in the Science and Engineering Fair of Houston. The Science Fair allows our students to conduct real-life experiments, analyze the results and then communicate their findings to experienced judges. Moreover, we view such competitions as key developmental tools in nurturing a child’s critical thinking skills, communication skills, as well as their self-esteem.
