New Horizon Elementary School

Encourage the formation of a strong American Muslim identity.

Our hope is to offer students and families the opportunity to meet peers who share similar values and visions for their future. With this foundation, lifelong friendships emerge with others who share and support their beliefs. Students have a strong sense of self within a school environment that is safe and respects their individuality.

Social & Emotional Development

In addition to the core elementary program, New Horizon incorporates a variety of supplementary curriculum and programs to support the development of students’ social and emotional development.

Elementary School Overview (K-5th grade)

New Horizon supports the development of 21st Century skills in each child to assure academic, spiritual, physical, social, and emotional well-being. The Elementary School Program (K-5) focuses on the foundational skills using a combination of rigorous academics, enriching religious studies, and specialty classes such as art and physical education. These programs provide the cornerstones and necessary foundations for raising successful and conscientious American Muslim citizens. As an independent school, New Horizon aims to exceed the national standards where teachers incorporate critical thinking, analytical reasoning, effective communication, and problem-solving skills in everyday learning.
