Our Path

The Strategic Direction of Hadi School

As a privately operated school, Hadi School has the opportunity to continuously re-evaluate its methods and ensure that we are providing our students the most innovative and up-to-date methods of learning. Hadi School strives for its students to achieve both academic and Islamic excellence using the highest quality of learning methods.


In 2017-18, Hadi School has moved towards integrating Project Based Learning as well as Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) into a Personalized Learning curriculum.


Schools all across the country are transforming education by encouraging innovation. Leaders in education have recognized the positive impact of personalized learning, whereby students receive the instruction they need, when they need it. Teachers are blending in-person instruction with technology to differentiate lessons, using real-time data to personalize learning and allow for mastery-based progression, and they are incorporating student choice and agency into instructional decisions. Hadi School believes that a personalized learning approach leads to fewer students “falling between the cracks” and a greater success in the classroom.


With this student-centric approach of learning, students have the ability to move on when they have demonstrated mastery of a skill or concept at their own pace. Instruction is organized around course-level and grade-level competencies that include SMART goals to empower students. Students are assessed at deeper levels such as on content and application of knowledge. Learning outcomes in personalized learning emphasize competencies that include application and creation of knowledge, along with the development of life skills.

Our Learning Management Systems

A learning management system is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting, automation and delivery of educational courses, training programs, or learning and development programs. The learning management system concept emerged directly from e-Learning. Hadi school has been using Summit Learning as our primary LMS for over 3 years now for our 3rd to 8th grades. We recently adopted Seesaw to enhance our online and hybrid learning programs for our lower elementary grades. Learn more about both below. 



What does it mean for a student to be truly prepared for life beyond school, and how do they achieve a fulfilled life? With summit learning, our goal in Hadi School is to equip all students with the knowledge habits and skills they need to grow their life with purpose, financial security, health, strong relationships, and community. Knowing that each student is different, we created a personalized approach to teaching and learning for your child. Built by educators for educators’ summit learning is based on the best research and learning science. We know strong relationships with teachers have a positive impact on students, so students meet one-on-one with a dedicated mentor who knows them deeply and supports them in setting and achieving their goals. With teacher support, students are guided through a self-directed learning cycle to develop skills that take them well beyond their years in school. They learn how to set goals, select strategies to achieve them, and demonstrate what they know. Engaging projects give students challenging hands-on experience with the things they’ll encounter after graduation, like collaborating with a team interpreting data and presenting a persuasive argument. That’s why with summit learning, every student is ready for their fulfilled future, Inshallah!


Seesaw is a Learning Management System (LMS) that is a simple way for teachers and students to record and share what’s happening in the classroom. Seesaw gives students a place to document their learning, be creative and learn how to use technology. Each student gets their own journal and will add things to it, like photos, videos, drawings, or notes.

  • More robust creative tools, including Multipage, unlock new ways for students to demonstrate learning without a bunch of different apps.
  • Make prep more efficient. Schedule Seesaw activities, and save an unlimited number of activities in up to 100 collections.
  • Family Engagement is even easier. Families only sign up once and stay connected across classes and grade levels.
  • Connect more co-teachers and specialists to each Seesaw class. It takes a village!
  • Send Private Notes to highlight student progress and gaps, and use Private Folders to organize student work for your eyes only.
  • Get ideas and share activities with colleagues in your personal School or District Activity Library.
