Message from the Board Chair:

Assalamu Alaikum and Greetings of Peace,

At New Horizon School Westside, we are proud of the education we provide for our young
American Muslim children. Our small classrooms make individualized learning possible and our
implementation of new academic technology enhances our students’ experiences. We are committed to providing this quality academic education while instilling a foundation of high moral values in a progressive Islamic environment. Through this vision we seek to inspire our students to fulfill their spiritual, academic, and intellectual potential so that they may succeed in a modern , dynamic world.

The hard work and dedication of the teachers, staff, and Head of School make it possible for
us to accomplish our goals, but we also know that as a school, the academic and spiritual growth and success of our students cannot occur without the continued support of our parents,
extended families, alumni, and community. We thank you for your generous contributions that
have enabled us to continue to implement effective and rigorous academic programs. We hope
that you will continue to support us in all our endeavors and that you will always be a part of the New Horizon School Westside community. May God bless you and your families in all that you have done for our students and their families.

Halima Mohammed, Board Chair
New Horizon School Westside Board of Trustees
