 School Discipline

"Oh Lord! I implore your protection from the excitation 
Of greed, the impetuosity of anger; 
The domination of envy, the depravity of morals, 
The importunity of passion, the excess of zeal, 
The submission to desires, the opposition to right; 
The drowsiness of negligence, the entrance into troubles, 
The preferring wrong to right, 
The persistence in sin, the underestimation of guilt, 
The over-estimation of service, the pride of the wealthy, 
The begging of equals, the despising of the poor; 
The ridicule of enemy, the abuse of power; 
The omitting to thank, assisting the oppressor; forsaking 
The oppressed, aspiring to which I am not entitled and speaking of learning without knowledge. 
And I implore Your protection from observing the weaknesses of others, from being proud of my good deeds, from indulging in far-fetched hopes, 
From being involved in calamity, from the oppression of the ruler; from extravagant habits, from want of livelihood, from living in hardship, dying without asking pardon 
And from the chastisement of the fire. 
Oh Lord! Bless Muhammad and his descendants 
And protect all the true believers, and me
Both male and female, from all these, 
By Your Mercy, Oh Most Merciful!


- As-Sahifah AI-Sajjadiyyah, Imam Ali Sajjad (a. s.)


One of our most important aims is to build an Islamic community in school, a seed that will blossom and take its rightful place as a vital part of the Islamic ummah.

Self control and discipline can be achieved and maintained by teaching each student that he/she is a valuable, productive individual who must function harmoniously as part of a group. Good school spirit, a positive classroom atmosphere, enthusiasm for learning, and satisfying interpersonal relationships all contribute to the student's sense of well being.

A good discipline policy ensures an optimal educational environment for all. It requires a rational approach accompanied by firm positive action and training to develop the traits of self-control and righteous judgment.

The basis of our Discipline Policy is as follows:

• Every student should act as a responsible Muslim.
• Every student has the right to learn.
• Every teacher has the right to teach.
• No student will prevent a teacher from teaching or a student from learning.

For the safety of all students and to secure the enrichment of their learning process, all students are expected to abide by the following general school rules:

1. Students must arrive to school on time and ready to learn.
2. Disrespect to any faculty or staff member will not be tolerated.
3. Homework must be completed on time. 
4. Do not bring to school toys, Walkman, or other items deemed inappropriate by administration. Items will be confiscated and returned only to parents.
5. No eating or drinking in the classrooms.
6. No chewing gum in school or on the bus.
7. No playing in the classrooms except during playtime.
8. No fighting, backbiting, or fraternizing. 
9. No running in the halls or stairways.
10. No talking during class, except during discussions.
11. No playing in the bathrooms or around the water fountains.
12. No obscene words or school declared "curse" words.

We believe that our students represent Razi School, and their behavior should reflect the ideals of the school when they are on or off school grounds. Razi School students are expected to observe the standards of behavior wherever they may be. Each student is responsible for maintaining this standard of behavior and will be held accountable.

Parents are also expected to uphold the standards of Razi School while on the school premises. If a parent blatantly ignores school rules or behaves in a discourteous manner towards school staff, his child may be discharged from Razi School.

Cell phones & other electronic devices 

Students are not allowed to carry cell phones and other portable devices during school hours. All students must deposit their phones at the main office at the beginnning of the school and can re-collect them at dismissal. Anyone violating this rule will have his/her cellphone or device confiscated and not returned. If for any reason, the student needs to have a cell phone on him/her, it will only be permitted once a formal consent letter from the parents has been sent to the administration.  

Lockers & Desks

Students are not permitted to store or keep any unauthorized items in their lockers or desks at any time. The school upholds the right to search the lockers & desks without any prior notice to the student. This is to ensure the safety and security of our students.


Failing to uphold the standards of Razi School while off school grounds will result in a penalty imposed depending upon the severity of the situation.

A student given an in-school suspension will spend his day completing his daily assignments in the school office. After lunch, he must report immediately back to the office and may not have recess time. Detentions will be held after school or before school. Suspensions may be for one day, three days, or five days in length according to the severity of the incident.

The Administration reserves the right to issue detentions, in-school suspension, or home suspension to any student as deemed necessary.

In case of severe disciplinary infractions and/or destructive behavior, the Administration reserves the right to immediately expel the student. If a student is expelled, he will not be promoted to the next grade and must reapply for admission for the following school year. Furthermore, the school is not obligated to enroll the student.

Teachers and administrators will make every reasonable effort to find out all of the circumstances and the involvement of others in any violation of the school rules.
