Annoor Islamic School was established in the spring of 1989. Muslims of Wichita, with the active participation of the community, responded to the imperative need for safeguarding our children by opening a full-time Islamic school.The seed for the full-time Annoor Islamic School began to germinate in 1996, when twelve dedicated families answered the call to begin a new era in Wichita's history. That day Annoor Islamic School (AIS) started as a one-classroom school covering preschool and consisting of 12 students. Alhamdulillah, AIS is now an accredited school equipped with certified teachers and preschool through 8th grade! Insha' Allah, we will continue to grow. The size of the student body has been increasing each year.
AIS is nesteled in a middle-class neighborhood overlooked from highway K-96. The neighborhood of the school is filled with many Muslim families. The masjid is attcahed to the school thereby enabling students to pray dhur and salatul Juma'a(Friday prayer). The facility is large, and expansion is on its way to add a high school.
The Annoor Islamic School Inc. admits students of any race, color, nationality, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded, or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admissions policies, scholarships, loan programs, and ethletic or other school administered programs.
