I sent both of my children to this school. It was the worst experience we as a parent had. It was our worst nightmare. We sent them thinking this was islamic school, for our children to learn islam and they'll be protected, WRONG! Children were demoralized and degraded to the point I withdrew them middle of the year. Don't do it!!!

This is an absolutely excellent school. I have never seen such a committed staff and administration (esp. the 2009-2010 school year).

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
