School Notes:

  • City of Knowledge was established by a group of Muslim parents who wanted their children to receive not only a sound academic education, but also proper grounding in the precepts of the Muslim religion. They also wished to nurture these children in an academic environment away from the pressures of the larger community with persuasion to reject their differences. They wanted children to value education and to learn moral values as taught in the Quran. The first philosophy of the school was therefore established by these founders of the school. As the school began to take shape, the philosophy was shared with teachers, parents and administrators. Modifications have been few and for the most part represent refinement of the original philosophy.
