Parent and Student Handbook

Dear Parents and Students,

We are excited to welcome your family to a new school year, and we are pleased to have you as part of Nashville International Academy. Our school and staff appreciate the opportunity to provide your child with a great education in an Islamic whole-child environment. We are delighted to share the many wonderful things about NIA and to orient you to our policies, procedures, and resources.

This Student-Parent Handbook provides valuable information to help you navigate through the school year, including policies, procedures, and resources. While such a document could never cover the multitude of questions that will undoubtedly arise, it answers the ones asked most frequently. This handbook is only one method used to develop a closer working relationship between home and school.

Our responsibilities are many, but together we can work to ensure a successful school career for every child. We make every effort to establish an Islamic environment that is warm, and caring, emphasizes high educational standards, and ensures wholesome growth for each student. We believe that the attitudes and goals established by our school are in keeping with the high standards of excellence you have set for your child.

Please read through this guide as a family to be certain you understand all school rules and policies. After reading, parents/guardians should review the permissions needed, sign the signature page at the beginning of the handbook, and return it to their child’s teacher.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help your child grow, and we look forward to working with you this year.
