To support the academic system in this school, there are projector available in every classrooms that can be used by the teachers. In addition, as we all know that Muslims are very religious and sacred they also have separate prayer room for boys and girls. An open arena so that students develop their talents.
For the teaching system, they have used Student Centered Learning as a teaching style for teachers in the classroom so that students can be more active during the teaching learning process. The process of discussion when learning is emphasized so that the students can think more critically.
For Curriculum matters, Al-Amjad Islamic School has applied the:
Curriculum Al-Amjad Islamic Middle School integrates the applicable National Curriculum (K2013) with the Typical Al-Amjad curriculum and Local Content. The Learning Process is carried out in small groups (max. 32 students) to ensure optimal and maintained quality.

Skills also continue to be improved, both through curricular and extracurricular learning, and strengthening of technology to prepare students in the future.
Activity Students will participate in various activities both inside and outside the school environment that are sustainable from the elementary level. Student activities will train various aspects in themselves, ranging from independence, competing, working together, socializing, and high-level observation.
Extracurricular Students are required to follow Darul Qur’an and Scouts, then given the option to choose several extracurricular activities available ranging from sports, science, Islamic, and arts & crafts.
This curriculum focuses on students, not teachers. Students must play the main characters in the teaching and learning process. The teachers only serves as a facilitator and the rest of the students explore themselves to continue to develop.
Measurement and evaluation system, as I said a while ago that the teaching and learning process is more on student centered learning so most of the activity is collaborative effort so that my students can share their thoughts and ideas.
