Universal School

     Tel: (708)599-4100
        
   
Grades: PK - 12 | 607 students
From its inception, Universal School has been based on the belief that the Muslim child if he or she is to mature into a well-rounded, socially successful, spiritual, human being then he or she should be given the opportunity to freely explore the harmony between creation and the Creator with the guidance of dedicated Muslim teachers and administrators.
It is this balance of intellect and spirit that the Universal curriculum seeks to achieve, to educate our pupils in both the religious and the natural sciences and arts.
The Universal school board made its top priority to seek and hire qualified educators who demonstrate a commitment to the values and practice of Islam.
It is a pointless endeavor to educate children according to standards and values that are not adhered to by role models- in their lives, both at home and at school.
Universal School meets the crucial challenge of stimulating the minds of Muslim boys and girls, safeguarding their innocence in the midst of a society that in some areas has lost its moral compass, preserving the Islamic cultural heritage and practices of their fore bearers while preparing them for leadership roles in this society.
