School Notes

  • Our ultimate goal at Al-Rahmah School is to foster the love of Allah (swt) and the deen in our children while holding ourselves to the highest standards of private education.
  • We believe that all students, by the permission of Allah (swt), can learn when we, as educators, parents, and community members, provide a nurturing, intellectually challenging, and spiritually sound learning experience. We are committed to helping our children thrive and to develop as confident Muslims, productive citizens, and life-long learners. Al-Rahmah`s Elementary and Middle School programs are undergirded by four (4) main principles:
    • Ikhlas Sincerity in Action
    • Adab Refinement in Manner & Character
    • Ihsaas Emotional Intelligence
    • Akhlaq A Sound Moral Compass
  • Our school is a truly special place where we strive to teach, learn, and grow for the sake of Allah (swt) alone. When your child leaves Al-Rahmah School, inshaAllah they will have:

    • a desire to use their unique gifts to serve Allah;
    • a strong academic foundation; and
    • an understanding that success is only by the will and permission of Allah.
