The School

Madrasah Al-Maarif Al-Islamiah is an all-girls’ Islamic school in Geylang, Singapore. It is one of six full-time Islamic madrasahs for students in Singapore. Madrasah Al-Maarif has students at primary, secondary and pre-university levels. The curriculum of the school places equal emphasis on Islamic religious studies and secular subjects from the Singapore Ministry of Education curriculum.

Like the other madrasahs in Singapore, Madrasah Al-Maarif has a Management Committee whose members are appointed every two years by the Ministry of Education in consultation with the Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (MUIS).

In 2008, Madrasah Al-Maarif entered a team in the nationally-televised debate show The Arena, broadcast on Mediacorp Channel 5. The team successfully made it through the audition rounds before being knocked-out in the first televised round by the team from the Singapore American School.
