In its creativity, dedication, innovation and vision, Northstar School will prove a guiding light to those efforts that will follow it.


Northstar School is a K-8th grade non-profit, independent, faith-based school in the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded in 2002, Northstar has grown from a student body of 7 students, to one of over 140 diverse and eager young learners. Northstar has earned a reputation as a pioneer and role model in Islamic schooling, employing a range of cutting edge and time-tested educational methods.  With a dynamic curriculum that integrates classical Islamic sciences with a first-rate academic program, Northstar aspires to nurture the “mind, body, and spirit” of its children.


Northstar School aims to promote human excellence by cultivating students, in every grade level, to possess a well-trained mind, healthy body, good manners, and exceptional character.  Northstar provides a holistic education where we present developmentally appropriate curriculum that fosters love of learning, curiosity, mastery of core concepts, imagination, and a deep respect for the natural world in a dynamic way that cultivates spiritual, physical, intellectual, and social growth.
