Message from the Principal


Welcome to Minaret Academy’s website! We take pride in representing a very diverse population of approximately twenty different ethnicities in our Montessori Preschool and traditional Elementary school. We take a holistic approach to teaching; nurturing the academic, social, intellectual and religious development of each student. Our students are prepared to leave our school ready for the next level with college and career readiness as the overarching goal.

Among our goals this year is the Self Study Document for WASC accreditation. Our goal also includes embracing technology upgrades to bolster the use of technology across the curriculum. We are also focusing on the new California Common Core State Standards. These new standards focus on college and career readiness, along with critical thinking and reasoning skills.

I am very pleased that you have shown interest in our school. I invite you to contact our office at 714-533-6273 or email me at shabnum@minaretacademy.net with any further questions you may have after visiting our website. I hope that you will contact us soon and find out for yourself why our school is so special.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
