About the Community
Our standards provide a crystal-clear comprehension of what students are expected to learn, so community members (teachers and parents) know what they need to do to help them. Our standards are designed to be relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our children need for success. With Muslim students totally prepared for the future, our communities will play its role to remain successfully in the global economy.
