We nurture our students to learn in a safe and playful environment. Each lesson at SAMA is designed to engage, educate, and inspire. We ensure that our students are taught through visual, audio, and kinaesthetic playful activities.

Alhamdulilah. One of the best Arabic schools I have seen so far. My two kids go to SAMA and love it. They have really professional staff and management is really helpful . I really like the setup of the children lesson plan, even during a pandemic they have been really been organised. One thing that shined out to me was parents Evening. The staff really was aware of my child’s needs and this is so important especially because the Deen is based on good character not just about memorising and SAMA has this spot on. May Allah swt reward the brothers and sisters of SAMA and give them better in this life and the Hereafter.Abu Maryam/ Esa
