"Assalam Alykum Wr. Wb. Dear respected parents, students, teachers, and staff, I am pleased to welcome you to International Islamia School Otsuka (IISO). I am honored to be your principal and I am looking forward to working with each and every one of you. Our school has three objectives that we strive to achieve every day: By preserving the Islamic identity, our students will have a strong foundation to build on as they grow and learn. By developing their emotional skills, our students will be able to manage their emotions effectively and build positive relationships with others. And by developing their high order of thinking skills, our students will be able to think critically and solve problems creatively. We believe that these objectives will help our students become well-rounded individuals who are ready to face the challenges of the future. We are committed to providing our students with a world-class education that will prepare them for success in this life and in the hereafter inshallah. Our teachers are highly qualified and dedicated professionals who are passionate about helping our students achieve their full potential. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents for entrusting us with their children's education. We understand this is a great responsibility and take it very seriously. We are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment where our students can learn and grow. In conclusion, I would like to welcome you all once again to International Islamia School Otsuka (IISO).
