AMSR Principal, Br. Jafar Baraka’s Welcomes The 2018-2019 School Year

Principal Jafar N. Baraka

As Salaam Alaikum Al Madina Family,

Welcome Back!

On the behalf of the entire staff at Al-Madina School, we want to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year!

We are thrilled to receive our family back to Al Madina School for the 2018 -2019 school year and look forward to partnering with your family to make this the best year possible for our students!

We pray that you’ve had restful summer and ready for a dynamic new school year.

As you know, our primary goal is to provide the absolute best educational experience anchored in our Islamic faith and ideology. We stand ready; in full partnership with our parents, families and community members in support of our beloved students of Al-Madina School Richmond.


We have so many recent achievements to speak of.  From raising overall academic achievement school wide last year to earning full academic accreditation through AdvancED and the Council for Islamic School-North America for the 2018-2019 school year!

Through the grace of Allah, there is nothing we can’t accomplish when we all work together as a family to move our school forward.

This year, our focus will be centered on the idea of “Building a Better Al Madina” and our work will be focused on building a strong foundation around the following themes:

  • Academic Rigor
  • Spiritual Relevance-Relationships
  • Accountability

We aim for our students to have fulfilling, well rounded learning experiences rooted in great instruction and best academic practices. Our goal is to have our students become lifelong learners as well as develop the spiritual foundation centered in our Islamic ideals as decreed by Allah (SWT) and His messenger Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

This year, we will continue to work together as a family in “Building a Better Al Madina.”  Through this collaboration and with Allah’s will, our students will reach even greater heights this school year!
