Educational Philosophy

An Islamic school is an essential part of the Muslim community. Islamic schooling assists parents in their efforts to preserve and develop the Islamic identity of Muslim children growing up in America. Islamic education provides children with the chance to learn the basic concepts, values, and ethics of Islam, which provides a foundation for all other human knowledge and science. By providing an integrated religious and academic education, the school will help each student work towards developing into a balanced Muslim individual, using the guidance of Islam to live their life.
