We recognize the pioneering spirit of the many leaders who went before us. Mary McLeod Bethune paved a road map for African-American independent education. The Honorable Elijah Mohammed taught us that we must “do for self” in all aspects of our life as a social group. Here is the outcome, "Clara Mohammed School".
As American Muslims, we also recognize the courage and vision of the late Honorable Elijah and his late wife Clara Mohammed, our namesake. Following her example, many mothers began to keep their children at home to learn, but, as the community grew, individual efforts transformed into a group effort. There are now Clara Mohammed Schools all across the United States. Currently, we are accredited by WRISA, Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation.
We are American citizens and as such teach the importance of understanding our system of government and how to use it to everyone's benefit.
This is coupled with a reverence and respect for the Creator of Everything. We stress responsibility and accountability to self, family, community, nation, world, and the universe.
