Johannesburg Muslim School, Fordsburg

School Information: Johannesburg Muslim School for Boys




The Johannesburg Muslim School is an Independent School registered with the Gauteng Department of Education. With the Grace of Almighty Allah SWT, plans for a Muslim School in the Johannesburg area were conceived during 1989. Alhamdu-lillah, the Johannesburg Muslim School had its humble beginning in January 1990.

The curriculum is based on an integrated system in order to provide a well balanced programme. The Secular curriculum is based on that of the Gauteng Department of Education. The daily timetable of subjects is not divided into rigid and inflexible compartments, but is structured to allow for the projection of an integrated system of education. The education of our children is child-centred, emphasising the uniqueness of each individual.


We provide an enlightened and stimulating academic environment where new ideas can be explored. Our teachers are given the freedom to teach creativity beyond the limitation of the syllabus. We emphasize application of skills rather than rote learning.

Our learners have produced excellent matric results and our school is one of the Top 5 feeder schools, from previously disadvantaged schools, for the University of the Witwatersrand. The exemplary record of JMS learners at University level bears testimony not only to the high standard of our education, but also to the dedication and commitment of our educators.

We encourage our learners to participate in extra-curricular and cultural activities. There are opportunities for participation in public speaking. Our learners have achieved splendid results in speech contests under the auspices of the English Teachers Society. Various Clubs are organised depending on the interests of the learners. Our Book Club is very popular. We are also represented in the Junior City Council of Johannesburg.
