If you discipline a child, leave him room to turn away from his wrong action so that you do not leave him with stubbornness as his only way out. - Imam Ali (as)

Principal's Message

A Message from Our Principal, Dr. Humaira Bokhari

Accomplishment starts with a decision to try.

Asalaamu alaikum 

Welcome to Al-Hadi. Together, we will create a year of excellence for our children as we focus on improving student and family engagement, implementing the State and College Board standards and creating and maintaining a culture of academic excellence. We are determined to deliver excellent instruction, and create a school where safety, respect, accountability, support and excellence are highly evident in an Islamic environment.

We will continue to focus on making our vision and mission the core of our daily work with children, teachers and parents. We claim we are creating a culture of college readiness and this is the year we will build shared understandings about what this means and ways parents and teachers can work together to ensure that every AHS student is college ready.

Parents, we know you want the best for your children! So do we! We are on the same team. High performing schools have highly effective leaders, teachers, and teams. These schools also excel in family and community engagement. This year, we expect that you will stay closely connected and involved in your child’s academic, social and spiritual growth. 

Our expectations are vastly high this year. They are high for me as the principal and learner of our school, and they are very high for each boy, girl, teacher and parent in our community.  If we want our children to be college ready, and if we want them to meet the AHS standards, we must ensure they do not miss instruction. Excellent attendance is the first step to helping our children become college ready.  Learning is exciting, your children won’t want to miss a single moment!

Do aim for perfect attendance so that we can celebrate you and your child at our annual awards ceremonies.

The State standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. In order for our children to achieve these standards, we expect you to create a culture of learning at home. We will support you with this by inviting you to participate in parent teacher conferences and to communicate with the teachers on a regular basis.

Finally, as the principal of Al-Hadi I will be working closely with the learning community with the aim of confronting mediocrity and creating a culture of professionalism and excellence. We have a lot to be excited about as we continue our journey to overcome challenges and receive full accreditation again.

I sincerely look forward to your continued cooperation and support.  Do not hesitate to call or email me if you have any concerns or questions.

Help and support us as we raise our standards and expectations.

Let this be the best year yet!


Dr. Humaira Bokhari
