Our History
 

Al-Salam Day School (ADS) opened its doors in 1990 at the West Pine Masjid (currently Masjid Bilal) on the St. Louis University Campus in the heart of St. Louis with only a handful of students in Preschool and Kindergarten. After a few years, they made the commitment to add a grade each year until we reached the 8th Grade. When Dar-ul-Islam Masjid was completed in March of 1995 ADS moved to the basement in the new building. We continued adding a grade each year until 1997 when the first inaugural class of 8th graders graduated and went on to continue their high school education at Parkway West, Parkway South, Chaminade, and Mary Institute Country Day School (MICDS).

We quickly outgrew the space in the Masjid and the community started raising funds to build a separate school and gymnasium. In 2005 our generous community completed the fundraising and broke ground on the new structures. In 2007 we moved into the new school and have consistently worked to improve our school inside and out.
