Admission policy

The Islamic School of Rhode Island is an independent Islamic institution open to students of all cultures and background. The school is dedicated to serving the needs of students and families.

ISRI does not discriminate against the students on the basis of race, color, nationality or ethnicity. The criteria for all selections, participation, and admissions are always based upon the standard of individual effort and achievement.

ISRI accepts students in Pre – Kindergarten through grade 8, space permitting. Pre K applicants must be three years old by December 31st and potty trained. Kindergarten applicants must be five years old by September 1st.

All transferring students must request their previous school to transfer their records to our school. The school will reserve the right to re-test the child and accordingly may ask him/her to repeat the same grade.  If the child was dismissed for bad behavior he/she may not be accepted in our school.

IMPORTANT NOTE Medical forms and Immunization records are required by the R.I. Department of Health. All students that do not have the updated immunizations and physicals will not be able to attend ISRI until all paper work is received.
