Madrasah, an Arabic term for a community-based educational institution that provides basic knowledge in Arabic language and Islam which serves as the first educational experience of a Muslim child where he/she is taught the fundamentals of his/her religious obligations and social responsibilities and privileges.

Due to its contribution to Philippine Education and the City’s effort to foster and build a culture of peace, the City Government of Davao has given its full support and financial assistance to the existing Madrasah Centers and has taken an interest to accredit and recognize the Madrasah System of Education.

At present, the Madrasah Centers are sufficient to cater to the educational needs of the Muslim Constituents through the Madrasah System of Education. However, there is a need for proper standardization of the system and policies in the program implementation.
