The mission of Clara Mohammed is to provide children with a wholesome, safe environment; to encourage the development of G-d consciousness, academic excellence, and good moral character; and to establish a strong teacher, parent, child relationship.
Philosophy: One of the main ingredients of an Islamic based education is the proper understanding of the concept of worship. Each day, students are encouraged to individually acknowledge the Presence and Magnificence of Allah (G-d), as well as to join his/her teacher in congregational prayer at the prescribed time.
As a private institution, CMS not only promotes prayer in school, but Allah (G-d) is kept at the forefront of education.
At CMS we believe that prayer is essential to proper preservation of the moral fibers of the society.
In the United States, Muslim schools are by far the most vibrant examples of Islamic progress and self-determination. Since the 1930’s, the Clara Mohammed School System (CMS) has been at the cutting edge of this movement. Despite numerous threats of imprisonment by local authorities, the late Sister Clara Mohammed (wife of the Hon.
Elijah Mohammed) started Islamic schools in America when she refused to send her children to the public school system. A very strong-willed woman, in the mold of Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman, Sister Clara Mohammed did not feel that the existing environment provided the proper education, self-respect, and dignity that her children deserved.
RACIALLY NON-DISCRIMINATORY POLICY: The Clara Mohammed School admits students of any race, color, national origin and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs; and athletic and other school-administered programs.
