ISI High School

The High School program is the last building block of the Islamic School of Irving in preparing the children to become productive citizens of society. The skill sets that the children have developed to this point are now combined to help them develop their own strategies and innovative ideas. This is a continued evolution that requires care and wisdom to achieve the highest potential for all students. Children are blessings from Allah (God). Our responsibility to them is to instill an awareness and dependence on Allah to live their lives. The Islamic School of Irving recognizes the innate and inherent needs of children. Our high school program strives to fulfill the needs of the child by targeting six basic areas of development: spiritual, psychological, emotional, social, physical, and cognitive development.

  • Why Take AP Classes? 

Before we get into the numbers, it’s important to remember your reasons for taking AP classes in the first place. This will help you consider your options and make the best choice for your long-term goals. 

Taking and passing an AP class and its exam proves you are capable of an intro-level college course. Many colleges will give you credit for higher class standing for passing AP scores. (To find out any college’s particular policy, see the database at the AP website.)  AP classes are also a great way to explore classes you might want to take in college—like economics, psychology, or computer science. 

Finally, taking AP classes is a great way to challenge yourself and also to show colleges you’re taking on the toughest courses available to you. 

But take note: the point is not to “collect them all.” Colleges will not automatically favor applicants with the most AP courses, especially if they start to drag down your GPA or if you don’t pass the exams. 

In short, APs can be a huge boost to your college application, but if you take too many, they could actually hurt your chances. 

 

    • At ISI: we value the scholarly level of students’ academic achievements and efforts when taking AP courses with our experienced AP teachers and with the guidance of our AP Coordinator (Br. Fazlur Abdi). Colleges and universities look carefully at high school transcripts to see the rigorous level and amount of AP courses taken by a student. This overview of a HS transcripts includes careful considerations for scholarships awarded.

 

  • Dual Enrollment true concept:

Contrary to popular belief, DC was not originally designed for the sole purpose of graduating high school earlier, as most seniors will spend vital time with less heavier course loads to concentrate on solidifying scholarships, finishing recommendation letters and many applications aside from the ‘common application’ to Texas schools. 

    • Less time required after high school to finish a college degree:

Dual Enrollment credits may offer students the ability to graduate from college in a shorter time, take fewer classes per semester or complete a master’s program more quickly, thus saving the student or family unnecessary financial distress.
