AIS is an accredited school by WASC "Western Accreditation for Schools and Colleges". The school's system is designed to build American Leaders with high academics and clear Islamic identity to service the community locally and the country at large . Starting from Pre-K, our dedicated teachers use Mother Goose based curriculum which fosters students' curiosity and inclination to read and learn.

Excellent school. Al-Huda academics is advanced. Childdren are placed in a nurtutring and loving environment, with great muslim leadership. The teachers and faculty, are superbly organized. They drive students to do the best. Their academic curriculum is very advanced. Their Islamic Studies, and Arabic language courses are very good to. Unlike most Islamic schools, who focus more on Islamic Studies, and Arabic; Al-huda has an excellent curriculum in all subjects... I would highly recommend Al-Huda for any student. Not only, because their a Muslim school, but their a good academic school overall.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
