Welcome to Darul Arqam Islamic High School

Principal's Message

This introduction is designed to give you necessary information about the school, as you are, quite rightly, anxious to secure the very best for your child. True education is the harmonious development of physical, mental and spiritual abilities. We feel we are unique in many ways as we prepare children to meet the basic intellectual and social demands of adult life within an Islamic environment that will provide the means to be successful in the hereafter.

This goal is achieved by developing clearly defined standards of practice and behaviour, which help pupils to acquire the right attitude to work, and above all, the capacity to learn and continue learning. Each pupil is expected to play a responsible role in school life and will receive the attention of professional teaching staff that will nurture your child to excel in a variety of fields. If you feel this is what you want for your child, then the establishment of DAIHS and what it represents will have proved worthwhile.

With the help of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) and with the support of parents and the community we will make DAIHS an environment in which learning takes place with confidence; thus creating a path to achieving excellence in education and piety.

Our Mission & Vision

Mission Statement

Darul Arqam Islamic High School, recognizing the need to respond to the socio-political and religio cultural challenges facing muslim youth and to meet the demand for a total, progressive Islamic educational system which is characterised by the principle of Akhlaq, commits itself to confront the community with an educational option where muslim youth can engage in training to become dynamic muslim Quwwaad (leaders) who successfully, confidently and actively live out their divinely prescribed duty of Khalifatullah (representatives of Allah).


Our vision is to reach every child's inner potential. Our aim is to inspire and nurture that natural curiosity about the world in a distinctly Islamic environment.

We are continuously striving to create an environment which stresses educational excellence while, at the same time, challenging each child to develop themselves in order to become an exemplary member of society.

Darul Arqam Hifth Academy

A comprehensive Islamic Studies program includes a high quality Qur'an program, that's why Darul Arqam Islamic High School started a full time Hifth program in addition to a comprehensive Islamic Studies and Arabic curriculum.

Darul Arqam Islamic High School is the first and only Islamic School in Mitchell's Plain to offer a full time, integrated Hifth program in their curriculum. Students learn to memorize, understand and love the Holy Qur'an.
