The Islamic Foundation School has a long history of educational excellence and community service. A pioneer in Islamic Education in North America, the school can boast of graduates who have gone on to make notable contributions in medicine, law, engineering, the social sciences and other areas. Now, under the innovative leadership of Principal Omar Qureshi, the school is seeking to continue its fine pedagogical tradition, while deepening its roots in the classical Islamic intellectual tradition. Such an effort will not only provide more depth to the school’s curriculum, it will greatly enhance the overall experience of its students, faculty and staff. For all of these reasons and many more, I fully support the Islamic Foundation School, and encourage everyone to do the same.
