Two new private Muslim schools will open in September in Nanterre
Two new private Muslim schools will open in September in Nanterre, a commune in the western suburbs of Paris, France.
According to Le Parisien, the French Ministry of Education has granted approval for the implementation of these two private schools that will offer Arabic courses and optional classes on Islam.
The first school will be in a new building – still under construction- at 227 Boulevard Georges Clemenceau.
It will begin the new school year with eight classes of about 150 students in primary and secondary levels.
The second school, “Luqman”, which derives its name from the wise man Luqman, peace be upon him, for whom Surat Luqman in the Quran was named, is located at 138 Pablo Picasso Avenue.
