In 2008, the Joint Madrasah System (JMS) was introduced to assist madrasahs in the continuous upgrading of their systems, while continuing to preserve their past history, vision and mission to produce asatizah as well as Islamic scholars. The JMS acknowledges and optimises the existing strength of each madrasah, while introducing an integrated and holistic approach in the overall madrasah system.
The JMS curriculum provides a comprehensive and balanced exposure to both Islamic and modern sciences. Students are exposed to value-add modules that focus on current contemporary issues. This re-structured curriculum is ability-driven and provides different tracks for students with different inclinations and abilities.
In 2009 the JMS system was implemented with three madrasahs – Madrasah Irsyad Zuhri Al-Islamiah , Madrasah Aljunied Al-Islamiah and Madrasah Al-Arabiah Al-Islamiah made the historic decision to collaborate together within the JMS framework.
