Registered by the State Education Department of New York, Razi School is a nonprofit Pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade; private day school located in Queens, New York; with a diverse student body representing twenty-four different nationalities.
Razi School is named after the Muslim Scientist Muhammad Ibn Zakaria Al Razi who is known by the Greek version of his name, Rhazes, in the West. Razi School encourages its students to follow into the footsteps of this great man. We want them to be pioneers in their fields of study while standing out as distinguished Muslims.
Razi School has been established to provide our students an excellent education in an Islamic environment while giving them the academic tools to become accomplished Muslims in a competitive society. Through daily contact with teachers as Islamic role models and the interaction with the Muslim peers, they gain the inner strength and self esteem to stand up for their beliefs and let their voices be heard through walls of frivolity and ignorance.
Therefore, Razi School fosters spirituality and academic excellence in a distinctive Islamic environment with a high expectation for students in grades PreK-12 by assisting the students to develop as a whole and facilitating their success.
Razi School accomplishes this by:
- Teaching Islam as a faith to live by.
- Providing a core curriculum of studies consistent with the NYBOE.
- Recognizing each individual’s ability.
- Assisting students to grow not just academically, but as an intelligent individual.
We at Razi School are dedicated educators, who will make sure that each graduating student walks out of these doors ready and prepared to achieve their dreams.
