Character and Honor

Core Values:

At Al-Iman School, we value equally the following core values:

Excellence in teaching and learning

We value the transformational growth that takes place when teachers and students experience the joy of learning together. A collaborative academic culture nurtures intellectual courage, curiosity, and creativity.

Personal achievement in mind, body, and spirit

We value intellectual, physical, and spiritual wholeness. We inspire our youth to discover their talents, pursue their passions, and achieve their personal best.

Honor

We value honor and integrity as central to building character. Our individual and shared commitment to honor, embodied in the Honor Code, creates a foundation of trust and respect essential to an ethical and moral life.

Community

We value relationships that connect us to each other and to the larger world. We aspire to be a nurturing community that respects the dignity of every human being.

Heritage

We cherish and celebrate our heritage, one that is rich in tradition, Islamic values and opportunity for all students. The best of our past forms the foundation for the best of our future.

Honor Code

Each Al-Iman School student pledges to “uphold the highest Islamic standard of personal integrity in every phase” of his/her life at the school. By making this promise, each student contributes to the creation of a community whose members can enjoy the security and freedom made possible by trust. A student upholds the highest Islamic standard of personal integrity when s/he is honest, respectful, and responsible, but s/he also upholds the Islamic standard when s/he accepts accountability for conduct that is dishonest, disrespectful, or irresponsible. If a student has lied, cheated, stolen, or plagiarized, the purpose of the discipline process is to enable a student to accept responsibility for his/her actions and then to rebuild the trust that s/he has broken with the school.
