Welcome to MAC Niagara Islamic School
Niagara Islamic School and the Muslim Association of Canada have joined forces to establish MAC-NIS Islamic School – a full-time Islamic School. NIS has been in operation since 1995. MAC has an impressive list of successful Islamic schools across Canada. MAC NIS has purchased the former Maywood Public School in the heart of St. Catharines and began operations in September 2017. This merger of experience and proven track records in education is an opportunity you will not want to miss for your children.
