Why Tayba?

About Us

Tayba Elementary School is a not for profit, private full time Islamic School, located in Waterloo, Ontario. TES is a sister school to the top rated Safa and Marwa Islamic School in Mississauga, Ontario. Tayba Elementary School was founded in July of 2019.

The name “Tayba”, was inspired by the name of the city where the Prophet PBUH raised his companions and taught them Iman, Quran and the true morals of Islam. It was where the seed of Islam was planted and where it thrived to be the great religion we know it to be.

The word Tayba, reflects our mission statement, core values, and ultimate goal; which is to revive the teaching methods of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) so that we may educate our children the Holy Quran the way he educated his companions. Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), taught Iman before the Quran, through which the foundation of our teaching methodology is built.

TES provides an Islamic learning environment with a commitment to using effective teaching pedagogy to cultivate and advance a comprehensive academic program, which is fully compliant with the Ontario Curriculum to develop socially responsible, well rounded Muslim - Canadian children. TES also offers a Quran Hifth Program for students in Grades 5 and up. Tayba Elementary School is validated and registered as a private school with the Ministry of Education. The School’s BSID number is: 669852.

Our Vision & Mission


Our Vision

Our Vision is to inspire students to love and learn the Quran, every day of their lives. We strive to raise a generation of socially responsible, well-rounded Muslim-Canadian children who inculcate Quranic concepts, Iman, the Sunnah and Akhlaq in their daily lives, so that they may rise and shine and become walking Qurans on this earth, just like Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Our Mission

We seek to create a safe, exciting and Islamic learning environment where children are treated with love, kindness and respect. We believe a positive atmosphere can tremendously influence a student’s ability and willingness to acquire, demonstrate, and participate in learning. Our aim is also to help students understand and apply the meanings of the Quran before they recite and memorize it, and to live, love and embrace the Ayat of Al Quran in their daily life challenges.
