Noor-Ul-Iman School (NUI) is a non-public, non-profit, tax-exempt educational organization recognized by the New Jersey Department of Education and accredited by the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools. It is a member of the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools, the Council of Islamic Schools of North America, and the Islamic Schools League of America.
The school is located on the premises of the Islamic Society of Central Jersey (ISCJ) in the suburban community of South Brunswick about midway between New York and Philadelphia. NUI has been educating and inspiring students since 1993. The current enrollment exceeds 600 students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. There are over 118 students in ninth through twelfth grade. Noor-Ul-Iman is a college preparatory school that strives to give students the knowledge and skills they will need to succeed in college and move on to the careers of their choice. NUI has a 100% college attendance rate post-graduation, with students applying to colleges ranging from state colleges to the Ivy League.
The classroom facilities for Pre-K through twelfth grade students are located in a newly constructed building which opened to students in two phases, in September 2012 and September 2014. In addition to classroom facilities, the school has a computer lab, library, biology/chemistry lab, physics lab, and an art/home economics room. NUI is looking forward to building Phase III of the permanent school structure, which will provide additional classrooms, an auditorium, a cafeteria, and a gymnasium. The school operating budget is over 5 million dollars for the entire school, of which approximately 2% comes from state and federal funding and 8% from donations. The school is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of a group of professionals from diverse fields. The administrative affairs of the school are managed by the School Executive Council, consisting of a group of professional educators averaging eighteen years of educational experience.
The Noor-Ul-Iman student body is very diverse. Students come from a variety of cultural backgrounds such as Asian-American (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankans, Chinese, Japanese, etc.), White (European and Middle Eastern), African-American, and Hispanic. The majority of the students are bilingual, and some are trilingual. The diversity of the Noor-Ul-Iman student body is an asset to this institution. Having such a broad spectrum of ethnic backgrounds gives the students greater perspective on cultural traditions as well as religious understanding.
