Facts & Highlights

Rahma School was established 20 years ago to meet the needs of the Arab and Muslim community in the city of Ottawa and surrounding areas. Founders of the school had a firm belief that learning the Arabic language is a key component to creating a balanced and distinct cultural identity that is both proud of its heritage, and capable of sharing its values with the larger Canadian society in positive and constructive methods

With an average enrolment of more than 700 students per year, Rahma school now offers Arabic language studies and Islamic studies in 3 locations distributed to serve geographically diverse communities in Ottawa-Gatineau . The Arabic language program is part of the

International Language Program of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, and the Ottawa French Catholic School Board.


Rahma School provides a rich program that builds on high standards for teaching Arabic as a second language. It also provides a venue for our students and their families to participate and celebrate various cultural events, holidays, and festivities. Our program is administered by qualified pedagogues and teachers who have the skills and passion to teach the language using enjoyable and effective technique. Rahma staff is also committed to ongoing professional development that focuses on improving pedagogical skills, teaching methods, and effective classroom management.
