This school has undergone great changes. Now called Leaders Preparatory School, the new school principal is excellent. LPS is accredited by FCIS, FKC and SACS. High academics, outstanding Arabic and Islamic manners program. I wouldn't send my children any where else!

I have been a parent with MACF for many years, it started as a great school, but unfortunetly recently has a fallen due to bad management. The teachers are great, but very unappreciated by the administration. Tuition is rising every year but quality is going down. ISCF is very controlling of everything and sometimes its not for the best. Change all of administration and less of ISCF controling and it would be a perfect school, because the teachers are great and caring. I personally have left and praying for the above changes.

My children have been attending MACF since Pre-K. I am impressed with all that they have accomplished. Alhumdolillah they are A honour roll students, they did much better than the average in their SATs, they won in arabic spelling bee and Iqra competitions and they are not arabic speaking. They enjoy after school activities provided at the school. They have been blessed with very able and educated qualified teachers for every year they have attended. They have been fortunate to have had their teachers throughout each year which is a common problem in most other establishments where the rollover is high. Parent involvement is encouraged and appreciated. Parents are always invited to assemblies when ribbons are awarded for good Islamic manners and for competitions that the school participates in. Fees are on the high side for an Islamic institution, but it is a well established school.

Our family's life revolves around this fine academy! Our children just finished the 7th, 6th and 3rd grades; the two older has been enrolled 4 years, the youngest 3 years. The academics are superb as witnessed by the advanced SAT test scores. I cannot assist the older children with their math and I have a A.A. degree! As a non-Arabic speaking family, I am very impressed with my children's grasp and mechanics of their Arabic studies. At the rate they're comphrending, I trust they will be fluent or quaisi-fluent when their education at M.A.C.F. ends. This Academy is a lighthouse of moderation and tolerence. I am a firm believer that the children will cause us parents to discard excess baggage. The Olive Tree Foundation, an extracurricular activity partners with the Hebrew Day School and Orangewood Christian School to plant trees fostering much needed unity. Highly Recommended! AAA+++

It started as a quality school, but lately the administration is more concerned about making money that giving the kids good education.

Unfortunately I was quite disappointed with my experience at MACF. The teachers were generally good, but the administration was for the most part incompetent and whatsmore they were often quite rude in their dealings with the parents. There is a gross lack of orginization and getting even the simplest task done was a problem. Moreover there was a lack of responsibility on the part of the school, they have many problems which are virtually ignored and whenever you say anything about them you get no response or a lot of excuses. On top of all of that, the curriculum and overall education is definetly sub-par. Both of my children suffered academically at that school which is why I now have them in another school. Unless some drastic changes are made, I would not recommend this school to any parent who really cares about the education of their children.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
