AYA is a great school. I love the academic challenge it provides and all the opportunities it has given me.

AYA graduated from AYA. I love the school and the safe environment it provides for my children. AYA provides Honors, AP, and Dual enrollment opportunities. They have many after school programs (Judo, Soccer, Tennis, Ahlul Quran Academy and Science Club Inventions). They have free after school tutoring. One of the best things I love about the school is that the whole campus is gated and they have a full time security guard.

This school is great. Its a safe environment for my children. I love their after school programs. They have great dedicated teachers. The parents are always involved and supportive. 98% of the graduates continue on to higher education. So far the school has produced Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Educators, Nurses and the list goes on and on. Most graduates end up with scholarships and prove to be outstanding students and citizens. The success of the graduates is a direct reflection of everything AYA has taught them. My child is graduating this year, four more to go.

AYA is a great school!! The head of the school, as well as the principle, are very loving, caring and understanding. Yet, at the same time, they are able to have a firm grip on the students. They implement school policies very strictly, and always ensure they have a safe learning environment for the students.

I have mixed feelings as a student. I think this school needs to challenge the students not only academically, but "islamically".The staff and parents are very much involved. Extracurricular activities are very limited but if you're good @ soccer you might want to register for that. Also, AYA is mainly a Arabic School, so if you're Arab, you're 'welcome'. Overall, I think AYA is an average, not too strict Islamic School. It can be boring at times, but I enjoy the community and academic challenges it offers....... Did I mention? Many fun activities after January!!!!!!!!

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.
