Word from Founder

Word From Founder

As the son of Palestinian immigrants in the United States, growing up in Queens (NY) in the 1950’s, I regularly found myself at the crossroads between my Arab upbringing and the flurry and excitement of life that is New York City. I quickly realized that success in life relies on one’s ability to combine the best of multiple worlds. This early theme soon became the guiding principle that would be the foundation of the Modern American School.
