The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) working with the Muslim community in the Greater Toronto Area established Olive Grove School (OGS) in 2006. As a full-time elementary Islamic school (JK - Grade 8) and Preschool & Childcare Centre, the facility serves the educational needs of the growing Muslim community.
Olive Grove School is a private Islamic School registered by the Ontario Ministry of Education. OGS is committed to providing high quality education that includes and exceeds the expectations of the Ontario provincial curriculum. In addition to daily studies in Quran, Islam and Arabic language, OGS students are encouraged to focus on character building and healthy living.
