Through the untiring efforts of founder Mrs. Deyhimi, the Iranian Community School started its activity in spring of 1986. The first Persian language classes were given in her home with just two students.The enrollment quickly grew to six, then sixteen after just six months of classes.
She then moved the classes from her home to Pimmit Hill Center of Fairfax County, then to St. Luke Church in McLean and then to Emmaus United Church of Christ in Vienna and finally to our current location in 311 Maple Avenue in Vienna.
