From the Principal

Jolanda Hendriks, Principal

It is a blessing to welcome you and your children to New Horizon School – Los Angeles (NHSLA). Since its beginning nearly 40 years ago, NHSLA's mission has been to provide Muslim youth with quality academic and Islamic education and a solid foundation to develop their American Muslim identity. The founders of our school knew the importance of investing in our youth – as members of our growing ummah and as citizens of our community – and were among the first to establish an Islamic school in America. I believe our school's mission is crucial to the development of our future leaders and the continuity of our tradition. At NHSLA, we work hard to build academic competence, strong morals and values, and a commitment to serving the community.

The NHSLA community is built on strong relationships with families and students. Students engage with peers who share similar values and beliefs, which in turn cultivates lifelong friendships and self-assurance as American Muslims. Our team has strong partnerships with parents, which allows us to better meet the needs of our students. As many of our families can attest, new parents are welcomed with open arms and quickly become part of the NHSLA family. This is one of the special qualities of our school that I am proud of and deeply grateful for.

I am confident in the NHSLA team's ability to provide your child a meaningful education and nurturing care. We are honored to work with you as a partner in educating our students to be outstanding American Muslims and compassionate contributors to our diverse community.
